There was a Massey pulling tractor around back then called Sweet Sweet Music. Anybody know what model it was or who owned it? Pictures would be nice. The Roudebush family around Westfield had one but I think it was different. If anybody knows anything about this subject I would appreciate hearing about it. I'm building a toy 1155 puller and looking for ideas.

Saw that tractor run at Louisville about 1989 or 1990. The next season it jumped out if gear at Bowling Green and put rods and pistons on the track.

If I remember right the "Sweet Sweet Music" tractor was from Tuscola,Illinois..It was a 1155 Massey 10,000 lb Pro Stock..Theres a picture of it going up in a ball of fire on the cover of an old NTPA Puller magazine..If I had the time I"d dig it out..Its been too many years but was the drivers name Paul Hendrickson??

The Roudebush family from Westfield,Indiana pulled a 1150 Massey 10,000 lb Pro Stock that won a NTPA points title..I believe that this used to be Don Berrys old puller from Thompson,MO..

Go to the pulloff.com forum and ask..You will get the info you need and maybe even some pictures..

I did some research on pullingreference.com...Steve Roudebush from Westfield,IN pulled the 1150 puller "MF Express" from 1981-1998..

Gary Hendrickson from Tuscola,ILL pulled the 1155 "Sweet Sweet Music" puller from 1985-1992..

Both were hard running 10,000 lb Pro Stocks..
