Last Saturday was the 12th Annual Waterman Lions Summer Fest and Tractor Show.
One of the events was a Championship GT Pull sponsered by the Rock County Pullers. Below are some photos of the tractors entered.

And here is a special bonus photo.

This is a locally owned Miniapolis-Moline model UB tractor with an Allison V-12 engine. Back in the early 70s, this was a National Champion pulling tractor. It was the predecessor to the multi-engine monsters we have today. The man responsible for building it, Bill Wade, was once the head mechanic for Arnie "The Farmer" Beswick who raced Pontiacs on the Pro Drag Racing Circuit.

Thanks for posting. Those look like serious and expensive pullers. Pretty much all the brands are represented there. Did you watch the pulls? Just wondering if you had a favourite based on the performance.

I don't see any sleeve hitches.
Thanks for the pictures, they are all very good looking tractors. Neat that you got to see that UB in person.

I wish! I was pretty busy with working the show. The RC Pullers have one Chamionship Pull a month, which pays cash instead of points. This tends to bring out the Big Boys. There were many other entries besides these.

Neat that you got to see that UB in person.


You haven't heard anything until you've heard an unmuffled Alison V-12. Raw Power!!!

The "JD" puller has a Cub Cadet frame, looks like a 128 or a 108 frame.
