German term or phrase: aufschaukeln
Der Schlepper schaulkelt sich bei höherer Geschwindigkeit auf
A problem with a tractor but not much context.
I thought aufschaukeln means 'build up'. How does this apply to the tractor in question?

English translation:Shake
Explanation:
The tractor shakes itself to pieces (when travelling) at high speed. I assume this is due to unbalanced engine/drivetrain/wheels/etc, and infers that it is OK at low speed.

begins to rock


Explanation:
The tractor begins to rock at high speeds.
schaukeln means to swing, rock, and aufschaukeln here means that it gradually enters that state.
