Can anyone shed some light on which form of the moline U works best for pulling? UTS, UTU, or UB, I have all 3 chassis laying around just cant decide which one to use for pulling? I'm in the process of building a 500 CID puller and want it ready for the start of the next pulling season! Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Well I was thinking of running from 6000 to 8500 at the highest! The only class I wouldn"t mind running under 6 would be a 5500 king of the hill

What weight do you want to run? UB is far more operator friendly, but are harder to get under 5,000 lbs. I think there's a certain casting # U rear end that was lighter, but I'm not certain.

A 5 Star would be best. But out of whichever "U" model you choose, use the input shaft out of the UB so you can have a foot clutch. Jeff

is there a "better then some" years for the UTS? I believe the one I have is a later because of the newer style clam shell fenders

My vote goes for the UB. So much more operator friendly! In a emergency most of us will instantly push with both feet. Only on a UB will this stop you.

My choice is UTS. They are lighter than utu or ub. The hand cluth can be adjusted to not slip with the big cubes; the ub would require a rebuild; some UTS are geared a bit faster than the others (geared to run the same speed with 30" rubber as 38" on utu); and the standard fronts are more "unique". (just my preference).
