One old timer said he remembers when Tractor Pull events were done by using a stone boat.

The more "heftier" guys in the community would stand on the stone boat and the tractor drivers would see who could pull them the fartherst.

 At certain intervals down the track, others would step on to make it harder for the tractor to pull.

How things have changed!  

Frank Proper and his crew come from Cherry Valley with scales and transfer sled to put on our Tractor Pull event.

First, they weigh the tractors to determine which classes the tractors qualify for Antique and Out of Field.

Using different combinations of weights the same tractor can pull in several classes.

When the tractors are set, each tractor hooks up to the transfer sled.

As soon as they begin to pull, weights move up a track until the tractor has to stop.

Then, Frank's crew measures the distance with a laser so participants know exactly how far they went.  

Often the scores are close, one inch can mean the difference between winning and loosing!

The Big Dog Class is a little different.

Any size tractor with as much weight that can be loaded on it can compete.

While this all seems so cut and dried and a little dull, you just don't bring a tractor, weigh in and pull.

There are specific rules set down by the NYS Tractor Pull Association.

Plus, the men and women that compete are skilled, and over the years have picked up a few tricks of the trade,

for example, adjusting air pressures in the back tires,

making sure the tractor sits in the sun to maintain air pressure, certain positions of the weights...

These and other factors make all the difference!
