Antique Tractor Pulls
Antique Tractors in the pulls will be 50 years or older and not modified.
Tractors pull a heavy sled with the winner being the tractor that pulls the sled the farthest.
The tractors are weighed in and put into weight classes that are divided into 1,000 pound increments, ranging in weight from 1,000 lbs. to 15,000 lbs.
All tractors in their respective classes pull a set resistance added to the sled depending on the weight class. The sled is known as a weight transfer sled. This means that as it is pulled down the track, the weight is transferred (linked with gears to the sled’s wheels) from over the rear axles and towards the front of the sled. As the weight moves toward the front of he sled the resistance builds. The farther the tractor pulls the sled, the more difficult it gets to pull the sled. Each weight class will have a winning puller who has pulled further than anyone else in their class.
