We went along for our first ever look at the annual Tooradin Tractor Pull and Truck Show, which is round 4 of Australian Tractor Pullers Association championship.
Tractors compete in a variety of classes from the smaller minis to much larger and heavier open and pro-stock classes.
The objective is the same with each driver attempting to pull the sled the full length of the track. If you’ve never seen tractor pulling before, the sled shifts its weight box further forward as it’s pulled, effectively digging into the ground and making it harder to pull, so horsepower is king. This applies immense load on the tractor’s chassis and engines.
