Project Description

For those of you who are not familiar with the Tractor pulling competition. It is when a special-built weighted pulling machine, which is more commonly known as a “sled” is pulled by a modified lawn tractor on a dirt track of a specific distance. As the Garden Tractor pulls the sled down the track, ballast (weights) that are in a box which is positioned at the rear of the sled are automatically transferred (mechanically winched) forward on the frame of the sled. This transfer of weight, or ever-increasing weight, creates friction between the skid pan (that’s part of the front of the sled) and the ground. That in turn, makes the sled harder to pull, eventually stopping the vehicle. The winner is determined not by how fast the pulling vehicle goes down the track, but by which tractor drags the sled the farthest. In other words, it’s not a race, it’s a pulling event!

Garden Tractor Pull starts on the racetrack at Markham Fair on Sunday September 30, 2018 at 9:30AM.
