A tractor is just what the name implies. It is a motorized, in our case air powered, device designed primarily to push, pull or position a load that is suspended from a trolley on a beam. Completely independent, however, tractors can be used to push, pull or position just about anything that rolls, whether suspended or on the ground. They are particularly useful to negotiate tight curves and can even be run upside down.
