Well that was a blast! Had lots of fun and learned a TON! TIRES TIRES TIRES!!! Once we changed the tires he was off and running! He got stuffed twice when old blue stood right up and scared him so he let off doh! Weighted him up to 1500 # full pulled 2260 lbs on the boat. Then second try he went like 7" and his buddy with the cub went 5".
Then the daddy pull off they added another row of blocks and my brother took it out 5.6' Chris took the cub out 2' .
The hydro in Ford is AWSOME!! The cubs hydro well let's just say it gets HOT!!! YOWZA does it get hot!! Once my battery is full I'll post pics and a video .

Worst part, my phone went dead when the last few pulls were going to start. After we changed the rear wheels it did far and away better but he lost out because we had the front way to light. Next time .... :)

Great job on getting things ready! Did your young'n have enough fun he wants to do it again? I'm also tickled to see someone brough a Massey into the mix, too.

Looks like a great time! I am surprised they let people use ATV tires, those are usually against the rules at most pulls! Yes, tires are important, and they make a huge difference, there are also many variables with tires. Skinny or wide? Aggressive or not? Air pressure?

In the last picture, the camera guy must think he is at the beach! I mean, Hawaiian shirt, shorts and no shoes! He does know he is at a tractor pull, right? :bigrofl:

My nefew had a blast even though he didn't win, and new so as it was his first try doing it and he loved it!!! He is all giddy for the next one in 2 weeks. Now his dad needs to get some $$$ for real tires lol!! And we need to build a new tractor, that's my tilling rig lol.
Don't tell anyone but Kyleonly has one good eye! His cousintook the other out with a stick, yeah that's right, a real shame that little boy has gone through hell and back and kicked butt!! So I don't mind him getting seat time on my rig :)

Great news Keith and I'm glad to see a Hydro doing the pulling. :thumbs:

Since you are a hydraulics guy, what is your opinion so far on how it did.?? I can hear it straining a little, but it didn't seem to mind.

I was impressed and with some fine tuning I think it will be a contender. That one has always been noisy but my 165's is not? So I may change out the hydro unit with a newer one I have. First thing on the ajenda though is getting more revs out of that 301! Need to kick the boat hard in the beginning and still have enough to keep it moving with out letting up.
It will be totally different with the transfer sled too. As you can sneak up on the engine, not so with a stone boat.

Keith , I'm wondering if the heat/noise is relative to gear pump vs piston pump or are both the same?. I'm interested in what you learn-we don't pull in this neck of the woods, but I've always thought a hydro system could surprise folks-Thanks,Lee

Lee, they are both the same type ball piston pump/motor combos. Very impressive and durable.
