Fella at work tonight showed me pix of his wife doing a PEDAL tractor pull!  But, was on a modified Deere with high steering and a high seat. He said a company in Ohio somewhere comes to shows to put these on with this one tractor. The pedals are way up high also, and very low geared it looked like. He said could still use the rear for diff gears and had to progress up in gears as the competition went on. Weight sled had it's own small engine to drive back to beginning of pull lane. They did this on blacktop, but do dirt at places with no paving to use it on. My co-worker, a big 300lb guy got first place. He said not a lot of pedlars, 5 guys and 4 women is all at this show.

 

Ever heard of such a thing? Wonder if there's something on U-tube or other places? Too bad it had to be a Deere, but guess that's what people recognize.

No, this doesn't count! Fire trucks are red (and white) and all kind of tractors are green and yellow!

 

But I think, your daughter enjoys her vehicle  :wave:

First it was Bigger, maybe longer and taller. The pedals crank was way up high and as noted very low geared it showed in video, not as quick as kid's type. I just asked about sending to me, and AOL won't let it work to me.
