Well I've pulled some of everthing. A Super M which has been a really competitive tractor for me. I just recently finished a 1066 which I pull in the stock farm class. One time I even pulled one of our Cub Cadets in the garden tractor pull. It just wasn't as fun as the 1066.
And then thiers the pickups a 75 F-250 390 4 speed which dosen't owe me anything. I proablly owe it, ha ha. I even tried pulling the old 6.9, but am a little short on power.
I havent pulled in a couple off years but have pulled at the Boone county fair which discontinued there pull.Cant figure that one out yet. As far as pulling itself. Any pulls that are close i try to attend. Been to the Caroll tractor an truck pull. great pull. Allsouped up seuff, have attended several NPPA pullersff course. Arlington an Wahoo pulls tractor an truck both, Some off the best pulling around.
Is Arlington the one that has the Antique pull and then the truck pull back to back on a weeknight usually? And the truck isn't very organized, there's like 3 broad classes. Or am I thinkin of somewhere else, the town is not terriably far from Blair.
Yes they do. They run antiques first an then the trucks usually after midnight. They should have seperate nights though. The tractor pull runs way late. Tons off antiques pulling. They have diesel truck as well as stock trucks pulling. They have good size number off trucks pulling. There is one Ford truck a 65 Ford 4x4 that kicks but every year. Yeh a 65. He pulls that thing like its nothing. Its got some deep gears.Seen a guy with a mid nineties 4x4 PSd that had twin stacks out the bed pulled. Pretty awesome truck. Yeh Arlington is a must see event no matter what pulls.
Ok, I've been there a few times then, I don't believe I made it last year, I was thinking of taking my 460 up there, it would be a different sled to pull for once (big red) and it looks like they figured out how to set it for antique to. One year when they had it at Ulysses for an antique pull, they were droppin the pan like they do for trucks or bush pullers, so........ everyone came within inches of each other. Next time I caught it about 4 or 5 years later was at Arlington and they had it set real nice.
Yeh that would be a good idea. Thats a great pull. There track is erxcellent for pulling. Theres not much different length between the first on down to the last place tractor. They do it right for sure. It would be a good test for your tractor. Is your 460 a diesel. Love to come an see you pull.
Yeah it's a diesel (don't expect anything special, it pulls 10x better then it looks), I hit a lot of pulls around here if I can, this year I'll prolly venture out even further so that every sunday afternoon I'll be throwing weights. Arlington is quite a ways from here, but it's doable, it just sucks that it's on a weekday, people gotta work.
