Going to get a tractor to pull antique class ,under <= 4000 . Whats the first thing to work on that a beginner should do when he pulls that tractor?
The tractor runs,and drives no obvious faults tires hold air not dry rotted. Lets say , a tractor capable of pulling moldboard plow.

Would be better to go and watch. Then buy a tractor that does well. Unless you enjoy working and building one. I enjoy building what I pull. I never quit changing it a bit.Just might build a Moline next. Or a 4000 lb. 6 cyl. JD.

The first is to get a copy of the rules for the places you plan to pull. There will probably be safety related rules that you will need to meet.

fastest way for a puller to have a million bucks is to start with two million!! we need to know so many things about what you have and how far you want to go down the track.

Take what you have see if you enjoy it and then comes the part if you want to spend more money to play. Rember no mater how much you spend and how much power you have you still dont win al the time. Its a hobbie to enjoy. you dont have to spend a ton of money to run 4 and 3 mile per hour.

modify the hitch, add wheely bars, weight brackets, tune engine, perfect the carb, ignition, clean gas tank, install ideas in your head that the further you pull the harder it gets faster and meaner,progressively,learn that you don't have the power you think you have because the sled will stop you, each track is different and learn to judge your tractors ability and response from watching others.Become one with your tractor and have passion and do homework and spend time needed to adjust and tune to the situation, hitch height is important, make it easy to adjust, use the height to help fine tune, learn, remember and use middle of the tractor weight brackets because if you do, any misjudgement will only be have wrong. LOL enjoy!!!!!!!!!

Today's Featured Article - A Lifetime of David Brown Tractors - by Samuel Kennedy. I was born in 1950 and reared on my family’s 100 acre farm. It was a fairly typical Northern Ireland farm where the main enterprise was dairying but some pigs, poultry and sheep were also kept. Potatoes were grown for sale and oats were grown to be used for cattle and horse feeding. Up to about 1958 the dairy cows were fed hay with some turnips and after that grass silage was the main winter feed. That same year was the last in which flax was grown on the farm. Flax provided the fibre which w ... [Read Article]
