The tractor has no weight on it at all and the drawbar is much higher on the steam engine both huge asdvantages for the steam engine.Give them the same height drawbar and weight the tractor up the same as the steam engine and the tractor blows the steamer away.If steam engines were so great there'd be millions around instead of millions of tractors.

The hook points wearen't that far apart at the start but as the diesel began to trench the height advantage went to the steamer in a big way.

As was said the steam tractors were just what the doctor ordered in those days and did a great job. As to purpose:is their any real purpose to tractor pulling other than boosting someones ego?

Naw, today the EPA would make them put them there Cadillac convertibles on them which would cut their efficiency by about 30%.
