I'm going to try to post a link to a video of me pulling a sled built and used by the Genesee Valley Antique Tractor Club in Western NY. The sled is actually made from a 766 International with two I beams that extend back behind the tractor. The pan is mounted to the I beams and the front axle of the tractor was modified to fit at the end of the I beams.It is on airbags to be able to pick the pan off the ground and at the end of a run, the driver simply swivels the seat around and drives the sled back to the starting line. At the end of the day, the whole thing is loaded on a trailer and taken home till the next pull. The guys that built it did an awesome job and it looks and works great.

I see that the centre wheels are still in ground contact as the sled travels down the track. Any issue with the sled not tracking behind the pulling tractor as directional corrections are made ?

No, never had a problem at all.They're touching the ground but the weight of the sled is on the pan at that point.

we use a pull back tractor to get ours back to the line. i do know that for ours if you want to get it back in anything but 1st gear you need a couple hundred horse, yeah sure you could do it in first but then all the pullers get jumpy cause its taking so long

How heavy is the sled? We use C-range with our 115 hp pullback. It would handle D-range but we're talking less than 350'. It pulls anything from 3500 lb antiques to 12,500 lb tractors at 25 mph.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see well, we go sometimes to 3000 pounds all the way to 16,00 with the same sled, there are only one or two real big tractors that can get a full pull, and the only thing that can move it down the road is a big rig. i dont know exact weight, but for the smaller guys we have two wheels that we can adjust by cranking up or down on coil springs, when we crank down the wheels take some weight off so the small guys can get going without problem, than we take the pressure off the springs so the the wheels dont push down and take a little weight off the pan for the big guys, the pan is on the ground the entire time, the springs just help take off some weight without lifting the pan off the ground

That's really cool. I saw a pic on facebook of it the other day. How is the weight box controlled?

I'm not sure how they control the speed that it moves forward at, but at the end of a run to bring it back to the back of the sled I believe they use the PTO with some sort of gearbox.
