Hello there and welcome! :wave: Welcome to the wonderful of pulling glad you decided to join us. If your going into the competitive stage then be prepared to dump some money into it. Your gonna need to set back around 5000$ For a good stock altered and around 2500$ or so for a rear end overhaul. Over time stock parts arnt going to hold up very well especially if you hit a hard power track. 

 

If your starting out in stock classes figure around 1 -$2000 for total cost.   Just remember the equation,  Speed = MONEY

If your not into building sometimes you can find a complete puller for less than building one.

Nelentaxidermy , I wish you luck getting into pulling , I think your going into it with the right attitude of having fun with friends and family .

Theres definitely a learning curve  when getting into pulling , but with your pulling friends help I'm sure you'll figure it out .

 

Mike , yeah theres an old youtube video floating around of it plowing at a plowday , that a friend took .

 

I also took it to our county fair pull once when a good friends son was thinking of getting into pulling .

Luckily theres no video of that ....LOL

We didn't do to well and found out that all the power in the world isn't helpful on a hard track if you don't have the weight balance or the right tires for track conditions . ...LOL

Well in 1 month how things have changed.
A friend who pulls had a 16 HP puller for sale.
Probably a little big for my 7 yr old starting out ( good for me. :) )
Then we find a 12 HP set up for kids.
I now own 2 tractors.
Time to do some wrenching and modifying with my friends.
Another addictive hobby...

Here is today's purchase.
OK need to figure out posting pics.
Our friend who we are working with has a twin, he is building an alcohol runner, in a unique and beneficial way my wife likes the diesels.
So I am sure builds will happen...
