I been on this forum for a while, and I don't get to post a whole lot. I like little tractors but I want to see something happen to garden tractor pulling in our area. Compact Diesel....alot of folks have no idea it is starting to happen. I'd like to see an old style MF in there.

What you may not know is on the warm summer nights you can find me on a 300 foot dirt track somewhere with this

I was thinking of building one of these that wears massey sheetmetal once the truck is "done"

Nice pulls & nice truck.
I loved the one announcers comment about you having your foot in the radiator. LOL
I had my Uncle one time tell me they outta disqualify me because of the 3 foot of throttle cable dragging behind me.
As for the GT's, those are some finely tunes machines. The 2 guys making me wince were the one with his fingers between the fender and the tires & the last guy. I've seen a few light in the front, but I think that surprised him. At least with big tractors, you can steer by using your L/R brakes.
Thanks for the videos & good luck pulling

Thanks for the videos MF10D! That's a really nice truck! I have a farm tractor that I pull, but it's strictly stock...except for weight distribution that is. I always enjoy it! Good luck in your pulls and with the GT puller project when you get to it. Don't forget to post lots of pics of your build. It will be very interesting reading!
