Some would say I am crazy for spending all the time, effort, and money restoreing these only to do this with them, but hey! it was fun, and I think the tractors even enjoyed it.

Looks like a pretty evenly matched pair! Is that how you prepare your garden for planting down there in Texas LOL? You guys really churned up some dirt!

I agree, I think the tractors had fun! If the ford had Tru Powers like the craftsman it would have drug it around. JMO

They do look very evenly matched. What part of Texas are you from Larry? The landscape looks alot like it does down here in Harlingen. Looks like you guys were having fun.

The Craftsman had a traction advantage due to the AG's. Interesting videos though.

Yes the Craftsman had an advantage with AGS, but BMP had a weight advantage. We were supprised that neither would move unless the clutch was pushed in....... so we moved to the hard packed crushed rock drive. I had to lean in a little, but we got a winner.



Then we broke out the blade to level everything back out.

I have always wanted to do that, think it looks to be a ball.
They used to call that a "Braggin' Rights" pull around here with the big tractors.

I would say if they both had ags, were weighted the same, etc that the results would still be pretty even, regardless of surface.
I think that the winner seems to be decided by driving skill too.

Thanks a bunch for showing your pull-off, looks like a hoot.

HEY GUYS: I know some of you are out there right now, hooking up chains to your babies and no amount of warning you of the dangers would do any good... But Please, for the love of Pete, be careful!
Flip-overs can happen faster than you think, especially with rear wheel weights.

Alan, next we meet up we will have to see how our two Craftsman's match up, old vs new, yellow vs red. :D

I hooked the Caterpillar to something this past week that was max pulling capacity. I had hooked to a Farmall 200 sickle mower attachment and both tires just spun round and round until I finally pushed the clutch lol. Had two perfect holes 4 inches deep LOL. Rehooked offset and got the sickle to turn and away we went.

Fun pulling challenge, but it is more fun when you have to drag bigger anchors around LOL.
