Is the lighter tractor classes starting to be dropped to accommodate the bigger smoker tractors. Obviously more people wanna see those and thats what bring in the crowds and the$$$. So wants again the clubs and associations leave the old school, way it got started, pushed back in the fence rows.

Around here 3500 is a little thin, but 4000 to 6500 is where all the tractors are. Very few bigger ones.

Droping the lighter classes is a mistake, these classes are predominately beginners and youngsters, we need to keep them to keep feeding the sport.

They did that at our local county fair, I'm sure it hurts them when they pay out top 3 and only 3 are entered.

In W. Pa. there is 3 clubs that start at 2500 or 2750. The next classes are 3000,3250,&3500. All 3 clubs have good participation in the light classes. In my opinion the people in these classes throw less weight per class and have just as much FUN.

The lighter classes is where we are growing the fastest in our club. We have more 3,000# pullers than any other class. Lot"s at 2,500&3,500 as well.4,000 is a little weak but we have good numbers again at 4,500. The lighter classes allow a guy with a half ton pickup & a car hauler type trailer to play. Kip

The light classes are growing every year in my area too. We also start at 2500# and run USAP rules with multiple speeds. Most folks are building light pullers now because they are much easier to haul, less weight to move and you get to pull early in the order. The 3500-4500# classes have really heated up in the past few years. The number of tractors in each class starts to thin out pretty quick past 6000#. We have heavy classes too, even up to 12,000# but very, very few tractors and dwindling more every year. At our spring pull there were no entries above 9000#.

Around here any class where the tractor can be hauled behind a mini van SUV or pickup with a bumper hitch is loaded with competitors.
