Where is the tractor pull ? And when ?Been asked a few times if I would be interested in taking my Tw15 to a couple of tractor runs, closest ones are about 15-20 miles away, so there's two hours driving there and back before I've even started, it really doesn't float my boat.
But there's a local charity tractor pull held once a year, now that's something I'd like to have a go at
I have never seen a cabbed version. I was on a farm at Okehampton recently and the farmer had a shed full of them with one on tracks, was a helluva track frame on it.
How did you know she was a horsey girlI struggle to see the point of tractor runs. 25 R series John Deeres with twin beacons in convoy is just an average afternoon on the A17.
If you have have a mix of old and new then the slowest always leads, so Great Uncle Nick on his Marshall M pop-pops away flat out at 7 mph, followed by Dave's DB 995 that is putting out more and more blue smoke from the breather because it needs rev above 1500 rpm, but he can't put it into 4th because the whine from the final drive would constitute an environmental health contravention in a public area. Next up is Joe on his Kubota lawnmower, which is has everything a much bigger tractor has, don't you know, it's just smaller, much smaller. But if he hangs any further back to avoid the DB's oil smoke he will be getting dangerously close to the giant 800R32 front tyres of the Fendt following and he knows from an earlier near miss that the driver has put it in cruise mode so he can concentrate his attention between the movie on his ipad and the scantily dressed horsey girl in the passenger seat.
My neigbour organised one a couple of years back on private farm tracks that probably would have been fun.
I subscribe monthy to our Air Ambulance. I pay £120/yr. How much does each tractor on a run donate?shame there are negative comments about tractor runs, the one charity that some runs contribute towards is THE AIR AMBULANCE, I'm glad its available, but hope you never need it!! as rural people who can argue with that ?? ANYONE ??
Thats good. Like I say I dont have a problem with tractor runs so long as they don't have a negative impact on the public.shame there are negative comments about tractor runs, the one charity that some runs contribute towards is THE AIR AMBULANCE, I'm glad its available, but hope you never need it!! as rural people who can argue with that ??

yes it is for their own entertainment,But they are helping good charities, not every hobby does so?Thats good. Like I say I dont have a problem with tractor runs so long as they don't have a negative impact on the public.
But being realistic most are doing the tractor runs for their own entertainment
