Tractors: tests and services

In the area of vehicle technology, tractors, mobile machines, commercial vehicles and components are tested according to international norms and regulations as well as DLG's own standards.

The development and application of current, knowledge-based and practice-oriented testing and measuring methods characterises the work of the test engineers. The DLG-ANERKANNT (DLG-APPROVED) quality mark, awarded as part of the DLG tests, stands for neutrally and independently confirmed highest product quality.

In addition to tests according to DLG standards as well as approval-relevant tests according to standards and regulations, the DLG Test Center offers comprehensive services for quality assurance as well as on the basis of customer-specific test requirements for research and development purposes.
