Stone boat pull.
Classes are as follows: Lawn & Garden Up to 14 hp stock, Lawn & Garden Up to 14 hp enhanced, Lawn & Garden 15 to 19 hp enhanced, Lawn & Garden 20 hp and over enhanced, 2500, 3000, 3500, 4500, 5000, 5500, 6500, 8000, 9500, 11000, and 12500. The 2500# to 12500# classes will be Antique tractors up to and including year 1960, stock tractors from 1961 to 1970, and Home Made tractors. All tractors will pull in the same class, and be judged separately. A minimum of two like tractors is necessary to constitute an official pull for that class. Classes for 14500# and Free For All will be offered if there are two or more entries. The Free For All will be open to Farm Stock (newer) tractors. The 3500, 4500, 5500, 6500, and 8000# classes will be split into stock and enhanced classes (with enhanced to weigh in at 3500, 4500, 6000, 7000, and 8000#). Stock will be 700 PTO rpms, not cut tires, pulling less than 3 miles per hour, having a stock block and correct motor. Also we may do a compression check. Anything else would be in the enhanced class.
Wheelie bars have to support weight of tractor and extend past rear of back tires ten inches off the ground. Noone gets too picky about that as long as its not "way off".
Hitch hight cant exceed 20" and is enforced.
All other rules are pretty much like most organizations. The pull will be at the Noden Reed farm in Windsor locks, Connecticut. The Noden Reed Farm is on West street, Windsor locks, ct.
The street is short and not difficult to find the farm. To pull in the club there is a $20 fee plus $8 per class.
