It has a T2 Attachment Slot on the front of the vehicle and a power port on back. The Tractor can pull up to three rovers by attaching them to the rear power port.
Like other rovers, the Tractor has no Power when created. The internal battery can be charged by connecting it to a base or by attaching a power source to one of its Attachment Slots.
