Well the good luck wishes paid off I won with a full pull with oil' Blue (the 125) and Kyle came in 3rd with my 165! Second went to this guy in the pic. It would have been down to him or me but the pic speaks a thousand words.( That's Andre and his 6 HP Lombardini powered cub)
All in all it was WAY WAY FUN!!!! That 125 PULLS AWSOME!! Never spun a wheel all day until the very end.
Maybe I can get some camera work tomorrow. ;)
We had an awesome time and the food was incredible!!! And because we were one of the attractions we all got food vouchers for the BBQ venders YUM YUM !!
LOTS of venders and stuff for the kids too my daughter had a blast. Until tomorrow...
I met a few gtt "watchers" too .
Oh I can't forget this Tuck being silly...

Some may wonder why I didn't run my 165 (my baby) well ....
It tipped the scales at 1004# and with me on it....well it was WAY TOO HEAVY!! So Kyle was all excited as he new he was going to run the diesel. It was going to be close but the balance on the 125 just gave me that little edge to get it out to a full pull.

Not much to show as it was a crappy day today but we still pulled! Made it all the way to the end with the 125 and came in second by 3 " Andre took first after fixing his broken axle last night. And a sears custom came in 3rd. It was raining and the sled got really hard to pull and there was no place to get a fresh bit after tire chains tore it all up. I put many a cub and all the rest of the Ford's on the trailer only to succumb to a cub with tire chains and a diesel.
Even Kyle's mom got into it she ran the 100 , it has to much power for this kind of pulling and just burnt holes lol.

Looks like everyone had a great time! Looks like theres a good bit of work to do to get that tub moving. Is this setup the same way as the farm tractor dead weight? Not sure if its the same so forgive me lol

Yup you get 3 hooks to tr and get it to move about 36" for a full pull.
We had a blast even in the rain and wind. Got me growler full o'beeya and a $50 gift card to the Gardner Ale House for my second place.
I have to say Thanks again to T&A Tractor pulling , Andre and Tuck you make fun for sure ! And to Rick Walton from the Gardner Ale House for some great prizes! And of course to Wachusett Mountain for feeding us some great food.
