I'm not trying to knock Jim or anything but nobody gets their money back out of their pulling tractor when they sell it. I know of a guy trying to sell a 125k alky LSS for around 45k and last I heard he still has it. That's only one example, get on pulloff and you can find many more.

The market for that tractor is extremely limited, for the same price a guy could buy a competitive super farm/pro farm or even the right LLSS and have way more fun.

Hi a pulling tractor like Jims is $27.000. I just paid $35.000 for a 2000 Valtra 6400 that I can use on my farm every day, not just at weekends/holidays. I Am also earning money working with it not loosing it!. I don't have to haul it anyplace, and the only childish B/S that I have to deal with is trying to keep the old man off it, so I get to drive it once in a while L.O.L. With the economy the way it is and it probably getting worse who has that cash laying around for expensive toys. I doubt any of these expensive pull tractors will sell for even close to asking or even at all in the next few years. There are some fancy 3/4 ton trucks round here for sale nobody wants them Guys are tryin to keep roofs over there heads and feed the family.
Regards Robert

I hear comments like this on occasion and being one that has never actually pulled a Super or LLSS I have attended numerous pulls over the years. While I think the ride would be awesome I don't know how it can be said that pulling at that level is more fun than pulling antiques.
I have several pulls within 100 miles every weekend that I can choose from and I can usually hook my tractor about 4 times per event. While the competitive side of pulling is fun and challenging, the enjoyable part is hanging out, BSing and having a real good time with the people involved in antique pulling. These are some of the nicest down to earth people a person will ever meet.

Traveling hundreds of miles to hook once, is it really more fun?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I guess it's not like that around here. All we have are farm stock pulls so if you have an antique tractor you will hook once like everyone else.
As far as an LSS or super farm, I had had one there is a pull every single weekend within a short drive. There would be absolutely no reason to drive 100 miles around here for a pull.

Kinda funny how things work in different areas isn't it?
