  2. Another great set..I don't know how you find the time!! Some of these guys look very serious and I see a few are running low tire pressures for that extra edge. We have plowing competitions here but before you enter competitions like this with a 50 or 60 year old tractor expect some breakage.....Thanks for sharing your day........

    Cheers

    nice series of pics, thanks for sharing
     
  5. Very nice documentary photos.

    Are these tractors souped up or something? What's the point? Doesn't look like there is any skill involved.
     
  6. A tractor pulling a wheelie .... sweet. Great series.

    Best,

    There are "stock" and "modified" classes. Some of the diesels (with all the smoke) were running in the "modified" classes. The weight of the tractor also
    determines what class it will be in.

    The skill comes in knowing how much power to use to keep the tires from spinning, or the front of the tractor from raring up.
