Had a fun filled day with the old man and MF10diesel at a local show today. At the end of the garden tractor pull they let us exhibition pull. The old man had the longest hook of the day with his hdt1000 with a hook of 94.5 with me right behind him at 91 with my allis 920 and that was after I was the pull back all day. What surprised me was that the old man was also 300lbs heavier than me and we were so close.

Good job on the pull :thumbs:

The HDT is definitely a beast :D :D :D

I have mine 'loaded for bear' with Rim Guard in all 4 tires and 110 lb. wheel weights on each rear tire.

I wanted to make sure that I have enough traction for plow days.

Just curious, was he pulling in Hi range or Lo range?

Glad you had a good time, that looks like fun. It's crossed my mind a few times once I get deeper into this hobby of trying this. Nice pics too.

That is a lot of weight. The tractor must be a beast.

I'd love to try pulling with my HT23 - but the local pullers won't allow anything with twin cylinders! I've also been told that my hydrostatic transmission won't work.. and that my 26 inch tires are to big. I think the single lung cub boys are just afraid of the big ole bolens lol.

Perhaps I'll build one of my tube frames one day to pull?
