At most pulls up here in Vermont, and New Hampshire most pulls start at 2500 or 2650 3000, then 500 lbs. up to 5000, then 1000lbs on up to 14,000 sometimes 16,000. The bigger classes 9,000 on up are getting a little thin, 2500 to 5000 are pretty crazy. The biggest being 3500-4500. Hey the trophy is the same size at 2500 as 12,500., it sure cost a lot less to haul it around behind a Dodge Dakota than a D21 hooked to a 3500 Dodge Ram, and a 14,000 lbs. trailer.I hope the small classes will always be there for the kids and the folks who can't afford the big stuff, and all that go with it. Happy Holidays to you all ........

It has gotten pretty unusual to see a farmer drive in to the pull on his tractor. "straight out of the field stock" Right? One guy won the heaviest two classes every year, without even adding front weights. But his dealer told me that the 135 HP tractor broke his dyno at 225 when he first got it in from out west. I have to look around for someone to pull against, by recruiting someone with an antique or borrowing another 1,000 lbs to get up to a heavier class. I wouldn't have it except that it was pretty much given to me and I don't get begged to come because it makes a lot of smoke.
