I don't know how they didn't break anything. And it looks like there is a lot of clutch smoke coming from under the tractor the last couple laps.

Very entertaining, but I want to ask "WHY????"

Seems like abuse of a perfectly nice tractor to me...

LOL they were racing...anytime you race anything ...you ride on the ragged edge, so I would say that was 'not reckless' that was racing...

Man those are some pretty cool tractors...

That old Ford had some serious power to pull a 4 bottom plow using what must have been the transport gear. She was smoking bad from underneath when he finished. No fun in that really. All over in 5 minutes. You could have a plow day there with a whole bunch of GT's and have a lot more fun, do a better job and make way less smoke!!

Yeah. I saw this posted on another forum some time back.

Not all that different than tractor pulling.

The guys doing it KNOW that eventually 'something' is gonna break. They are having fun and willing to pay the price for it.

This looks like one of those 'sports' that started with..."Hey ya'll, hold mah beer an' watch this!". :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth:

I too like Old Buzzard saw this a while back on another forum. It's an interesting "race" to say the least. Looking at it closely they aren't plowing real deep in their race. As for the tractor smoking underneath I'm pretty sure its just the blowbye from the engine cause if you listen you can hear that it's a powershift and it wouldn't be smoking. As far as power if I can read the side of the hood at the end right I think it says 9700. If thats the case it started life at 120HP and its definately got the screw turned a few times and I would bet its running more like 180 and definately running some higher RPM's to boot.

I just wonder how he was able to work all the hydraulic functions quick enough plus keep it somewhat in the furrow and shift like he was. The guy has some skill to do everything in that cab that had to be going on in such a short amount of time.

Speaking of plowing I cruised around after watching that one and this came up. Now that is one BIG plow!

Seems like the normal progression is higher horsepower, accomplish more work with one machine, use less operators. These guys appear to be doing it wrong!

I don't remember seeing a plow like that in the Brinly book :laughingteeth:

They must be using the bow of the Titanic as the plow! And why are they plowing so deep? I think I saw lava getting turned up as well :blink:
