Part of Our Vacation was a Tractor Pull

Not one of those really fast tractor pulls, but just your plain farm tractor pull.

Loading-the-530

Both Evan and Terry drove.  Terry had the 530 JD and Evan drove the 730 JD.

Loading-730

The pull was based on how much weight the tractor could pull, Terry did 170% of his tractors’ weight

Terry-Pulling

and Evan did 174%.

No I don’t know what the tractor weighed.  My job is to sit there and film the pull and remember the weight.  The rest is up to them.   🙂   Works for me!  I just have to remember to switch from video to still and sometimes I don’t get that part right.

  2. The original type tractor pulls are the most entertaining. The body english by the driver’s is very entertaining. They know that it has no effect on th outcome yet they all do it. Always a great show. It is amazing what 30 horsepower will pull.

    A Tractor pull sounds interesting. They have weight pull competitions for dogs, that is about all I know:))

  5. I never thought I’d do it, but here in the south, I’ve been to lawn mower tractor pulls.

    I’m used to big tractor pulls, but this looks so redneck. LOL But I always say, as long as what you do isn’t offensive to the Lord, you should try everything at least once. 😀

    Nice tractor work!

  6. Good grief! What next? However I just love looking at your very interesting reports on farm life in Colorado.
    How it that damn RIR rooster going?

    You’ll have to visit our country soon? Spring is a good time to come especially to sunny and warm QLD.

  8. Running camera(s) is a complicated job. I still end up taking a lot of video of feet, etc. When I forget the difference between On and Off. 😀 I like those REAL tractors. They have a lot of character and personality.
