I have heard about maybe the Brush Pullers of Missouri going to eliminate the light classes. Wondering how many that pull in these events or that are spectators, what their feelings or ideas are on it. They're have a meeting on it coming up in january.

If we voted out the light classes in our local pulls we would lose at least half of our pull participants. Hauling around lighter tractors and fueling them is about all a lot of guys can afford. Now this is antique "out of the field tractors", none of the souped to the gills stuff that the big time pullers have. Our little 65 member tractor club isn't affiliated with any of the more organized pulling clubs here in Michigan. I kinda wish we were but I can't get much interest in it, most of the members can't afford it I guess. We actually have our own little weight transfer sled and we are anticipating grading a pull track on our club property.....eventually, but it takes "Acts of God" to get much participation in "work days" we have even though we get about 50% attendance to most of our meetings and show activities. I don't know, it's the economy I s'pose.

Here in Ohio the club that I belong to has no weight classes, just plow size classes. The Farmal C and John Deere B prior to 1947 are 1 plow size, the Farmall H and late gas Deere B are 2 plow size and the Farmall M and Deere A gas are 3 plow size and larger are 4 plow size with a cutoff at 1955, 1956 would have to pull exibition. Now they are strictly factory stock. The Biggest class is the 3 plow at usually about mid 30's in number followed by the 2 plow at around 30, then the 1 plow and at times we do not have enough in the 4 plow to give 3 trophys. I have been on the lineup crew for the last around 10 years. Was strictly out of field supposedly when I got started, just kept getting more modifieds slipping in till I told them either it gets back like it was supposed to be or I am out of here. Well they decided they wanted me acordingly so the club rewrote the rules and they are now more orignall factory than when I got in. We dropped a few tractors but they were all the ones that was trying to slip modifieds in so no big loss. Got rid of the chicken scratch welded hitches. Always a croud watching the pull.

Our highest participation class is 3,000 pounds.If we eliminated classes lighter than 4,000 pounds we could probably run a club pull start to finish in about an hour!! Kip

As president of Brush Pullers Of Mo. I urge the pullers come voice there opinion on any changes. You will need to be a paid member for 2013 to vote on any changes. The more members we have will be more I can ask help at midnight when we are pulling the 13500 farm class so the same 10 or 12 are not doing all the work. They are the same members that help at the start of the pull in the 2850 Div. 2 class that starts at 2 in the afternoon. Any questions fill free to call me at 816-419-1012. Thanks Brad.

When we pull in Fl. We had the same problem . The light classes would pull and the heavy class pullers did the work. What we do is pull light to heavy one pull then next time we pull heavy to light.

with all due respect.....why would the pullers of the lighter classes want to pay 2013 dues if there is a good chance their class may be eliminated?

That would be like belonging to the Checker car club....and not owning a Checker(I have three)...not much fun.

That club is still young,,and Frankly....I dont understand why you would consider a revenue killing policy such as this.

Im sorry,,but that's an very inappropriate reason to ask anyone to join.......especially when there may not be a place for that person in the near future.

Brad, if that's your concern, here's what we do down here. It's a little weird and doesn't make any sense the first couple times. Put the weights on, take them off, but after you do it a few times the break between classes and the way it is, everyone is there for most of the pull.

Even the mixed up order gets mixed up every pull, with 4 different sequences.

#1 Pull order:

1. 7200 lb. Stock
2. 3700 lb. Super
3. 5200 lb. Stock
4. 2700 lb. Stock
5. 4200 lb. Modified
6. 4500 lb. 5MPH
7. 3200 lb. Stock
8. 4700 lb. Super
9. 5700 lb. Stock
10. 7200 lb Super
11. 8200 lb. Stock
12. 5200 lb. Super
13. 6700 lb. Stock
14. 4700 lb. Modified
15. 4200 lb. Stock
16. 5500 lb. 5MPH
17. 7700 lb. Super
18. 5700 lb. Super
19. 9200 lb. Stock

27. 4700 lb. Stock
28. 4200 lb. Super
29. 10,200 lb. Stock
30. 3700 lb. Stock

If possible try working with another club and use two sleds. We did this three years ago and it works out great. It was 7 hours to pull with one sled, when we use to sleds we cut the time in half.One sled dose certain classes the other dose certain classes. It took a couple times to get it lined out but it workes great. All pullers fill we made a great move when the two clubs worked this out. At first there were those that did not fell this would work, but now they would not have it any other way.
