A friend of ours daughter moved to NH for college, she wants to know if there are any clubs in the area to at least go to some pulls or possibly take hers out to pull with. 

She has a Wheel Horse with a little motor work on 26 inch tires

I found their Yuku  http://snubbers.yuku...ry#.UiaPmE7D85s
 Looks like she'd have to pull in the open class   what is this supposed to mean  11-All tires used in the open class will cost no more than $125.00 per tire.   I have pro tires that I paid less than that for, can she run them then ?

 Only tractors allowed to run "pro " tires are the multi-engine rigs . The "open " class run cut 26-12-12 Firestones or Carlyles. All engines are supposed to be basically stock, with only "minor machine work" done , no aftermarket parts allowed , crank,rods,pistons, heads, valve train components ,or carbs. Pretty much you need to get all you can out of a stock engine . Port the heads, advance the timing, minor mods if you will.

I sent her the site so she can have the schedule. If she decides she wants to pull then we'll really have to talk about the rules to make sure she was legal

 Just a quick question how heavy is the sled and how long is the chain. just doing the math lol

Hitch height is dependant on cubic inches on your engine and the sled is as heavy as they need it to stop a garden tractor, never know what it is, as track condition has a big part. Chain is 36" I think? Might be longer , I never hooked it up?

Okay, ours is 7000lbs but can move it by hand if needed. We never touch the weights just change the box gearing and the grouser setting

 

If someone came with a puller could they run against the two engine tractors for fun ?

Possibly, as long as it wasn't something wild they couldn't stop.
