Tractor and Mule Pulls
[Return to Topics]

Around here they have monthly tractor pulls and mule pullins. I especially love the mule pullins. Do any of you boys (or girls) participate with your tractors in that? It seems to me the tractors take an awful beatin pullin all that weight, but the mules (always a team), get three tries to pull the weight so far, and their owners are extremely gentle and kind with them, so as not to break their spirits. Any comments on these two fun ways to spend a Sunday afternoon?

I am a regular at antique tractor pulls with my boyfriend. I'm not just a lawnchair gal; I get out and drive, and have a fair reputation for it. Because I am as interested in the sport as he is, and I have interest and aptitude in the mechanical end of it, it's a pasttime that we enjoy spending together, on and off the pulling track. We pull antique Allis Chalmers, usually CA's but also B's, C's, RC's. We put a turbo on a CA and really made it turn some RPM's! We travel from our home in Maryland to a number of other states to pull: PA, WV, VA, NC. I wish we had more horse and mule pulls here but they are few and far between; I am a long-time mule-rider, and have great affection for the long-eared stock.

Up here in the north I belong to a tractor club where we have pulls. They are based on the tractor's plow size (one bottom two and so on). We never let the pulling get out of hand with the extra weight's they can put on. It's good fun and I think everyone enjoys it. ED
