That's a cool sled that the SC is pulling, the way the 2nd tractor drives his way on and further up to transfer the weight. Do they ever start with the rears on the sled and the back the tractor on to the sled? To me that would be heavier (might not be true)

I would think you would have to otherwise the rears on the cub would be helping drive the sled.

They run the cub backwards once in a while. Usually they run a Farmall H either forwards or backwards, depending on the pulling tractor.

I would think you would have to otherwise the rears on the cub would be helping drive the sled.


The driver is very good at keeping the weight tractor so there isn't any help or hindrance to the puller. In the other vids somewhere is an H pulling the H weight tractor. The hard part is when the whole tractor comes on the sled, like someone nails it to the ground...

It's a progressive thing. If they can't stop you that way, you go up to a heavier tractor that goes on front first. If they still can't stop you, then they turn the sled tractor around and go on rear first. FYI though, the track was really sticky this year and only the larger tractors (a Case LA and an Oliver Super 88 Diesel) actually moved it with larger sled tractor backwards! The next larger sled tractor up was a Farmall H. He stopped me (and MH81) dead in my tracks when the rear wheels hit the sled! The LA and the Super 88 also went one tractor higher to a Farmall Super M, and only when they went on rear first did they stop either one. It was a great time though!
