Cycle Time and Power Requirements For heavy equipment cycle time is related to power of available equipment. Power required is related to rolling resistance between wheels and road surface Rolling Resistance= 40lb/ton + 30lb/ton for each inch of tire penetration Grade Resistance=%grade x 20lb/ton/ %grade x weight on wheels
