There are times in this world when practicality rules all, right? Certainly aspects of life are just better when approached with that mindset. Racing and motorsport are not parts of this discussion. An F1 car or a top fuel dragster is not practical. It’s a tool designed to do a job in the best way possible while taking advantage of the rules allowed to build said tool. A shopping cart is a practical device that is about as exciting as drying paint. Two opposite ends of the spectrum.
But what about the idea of blending both practicality and competition while not sacrificing anything from either side of the equation? As this video proves that’s the beauty of a pulling tractor! This thing hooks up to implements and does all the work of a regular yeoman grade tractor but does it with ore flare, more noise, and with a buttload more speed. Yes, it likely consumes diesel at a rate 100 times more voluminous than a working tractor, yes there is no real cab on the tractor to comfort the operator, yes the slipper clutch will be requiring maintenance on a pretty regular interval but none of that is the point. The point is that it can still do the job…and the guy operating the thing should probably have a helmet and fire suit on.
We for one, wholly approve this scientific demonstration and enjoy the conclusive proof that pulling tractors are not just some of the coolest vehicles in all of motorsports but they are also the most practical. Clearly…right?
The Beer Money Pulling guys are the best and the AgXplore Cen-Pe-Co CASE IH Farm Life Well Spent team is on their level by doing this. So good!
