English term or phrase: power hop
"[...] the XM108 tire solved my power hop problem"
Atha
French translation:bondir et avoir des soubresauts
Explanation:
La "traduction" ci-dessus est plutôt une explication, à partir de la définition suivante, que j'ai trouvée à l'URL cité plus bas.

"My tractor hops when we pull our chisel plow. How do I fix it?"
It can happen with any size or brand of
tractor. It's like driving over a
washboard [comme si on conduisait sur une route ondulée]. The tractor begins to hop [bondir]
and shudder [frémir/secouer/ avoir une soubresaut]. The phenomenon is called
power hop. It's most prevalent in
high-horsepower, high-load situations.

Power hop can damage equipment and
tires. It increases compaction and can
make driving impossible. Typically, the
ground is very firm underneath with
loose or sandy soil on top. All types of
tractors can be affected, but the most
likely are 4WD's and FWD's. It can
happen with radials or bias ply tires.
What causes the hop?

There are many possible causes such
as incorrect ballasting and weight
distribution, excess liquid ballast,
under- or over-inflated tires,
overloading of the tires, excessive
wheel slippage, too large an implement
for the tractor, uneven field terrain, or
combinations of these factors.
