Thanks for the response. I like the sound of that system.
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!
Thanks for the videos
They run the cub backwards once in a while. Usually they run a Farmall H either forwards or backwards, depending on the pulling tractor.
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...
