If we voted out the light classes in our local pulls we would lose at least half of our pull participants. Hauling around lighter tractors and fueling them is about all a lot of guys can afford. Now this is antique "out of the field tractors", none of the souped to the gills stuff that the big time pullers have. Our little 65 member tractor club isn't affiliated with any of the more organized pulling clubs here in Michigan. I kinda wish we were but I can't get much interest in it, most of the members can't afford it I guess. We actually have our own little weight transfer sled and we are anticipating grading a pull track on our club property.....eventually, but it takes "Acts of God" to get much participation in "work days" we have even though we get about 50% attendance to most of our meetings and show activities. I don't know, it's the economy I s'pose.

Here in Ohio the club that I belong to has no weight classes, just plow size classes. The Farmal C and John Deere B prior to 1947 are 1 plow size, the Farmall H and late gas Deere B are 2 plow size and the Farmall M and Deere A gas are 3 plow size and larger are 4 plow size with a cutoff at 1955, 1956 would have to pull exibition. Now they are strictly factory stock. The Biggest class is the 3 plow at usually about mid 30's in number followed by the 2 plow at around 30, then the 1 plow and at times we do not have enough in the 4 plow to give 3 trophys. I have been on the lineup crew for the last around 10 years. Was strictly out of field supposedly when I got started, just kept getting more modifieds slipping in till I told them either it gets back like it was supposed to be or I am out of here. Well they decided they wanted me acordingly so the club rewrote the rules and they are now more orignall factory than when I got in. We dropped a few tractors but they were all the ones that was trying to slip modifieds in so no big loss. Got rid of the chicken scratch welded hitches. Always a croud watching the pull.

I did not mention a year for the Farmall C and only said it compaired in size to the John Deere B that was built before early 47 and not the B that was built in late 47 up and they are both in the same 1939 to 1955 year period for that class.
