If your referencing Benjamin's M, I've seen some pretty stupid posts on here but this one takes the cake. Congrats. Yeah it's a lot. Yes it is a trophy winner. Yes it one more jackpots than any other tractor out there. Go ahead build one just like it and see how much you have in it. To also come on here and say he cheats using a floating hitch is absolutely ridiculous and cowardly. I've pulled against jim and his family since the first day I started pullin. I've heard every excuse from people about how he cheats. Hell I've heard stories of people saying before he pulls on scales he will put a rock under them to be able have more weight. Lmao. People will do and say anything. People like you are exactly why one of the best tractor pulling families out there are selling there equipment Let's bash someone for being a fantastic puller. Grow up

Josh you took the words right out of my mouth. This is exactly why Jim is selling out. Crybabies that are clueless.

This quote was never more true than in your case, "It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt."

You beat me to it josh, word for word. It's statistically got to be the most dominant tractor at least since I've been pulling. I guarantee, to the original poster, you probably couldn't do better. Jims a very talented detail oriented guy and a heck of a guy, also.

A lot of work and care has gone into that tractor. No floating hitch on that machine.

I have seen it in Tunica and it is everything Jim says it is.

There's a Pat Green song, "If I had a million" ........ I don't.

This is a problem that exists everywhere in the sport of antique tractor pulling. It has just surfaced regarding one of the best pullers and one of the best tractors. Someone will always feel that they should automatically be the winner by default, and if anybody ever was to beat them, well then it begins. Anybody with a working ear will get to hear all the cr@p about cheating,hitches, rpm's, weight, weather or not it belongs in that division, etc.

I too have seen a good long time tractor puller sell out and quit because a cry baby wouldn't just shut up and quit complaining about his tractor.

The cry babies need to either get off their wallet, or pick up the wrenches. Winning a pull because you cried to the point that the better tractors stayed home isn't a victory in anyone's mind but your own.

100 horsepower? Ha! My UB dynoes 98hp and that M can utterly and completely out power me. I'm guessing it's got at least 50 horses on me. There's a lot of time, expense, and effort that Jim has given to make it the most competitive M in the country. Josh has it 100% dead on. It's folks like Jim and his family that put the icing on the cake that IS the sport of pulling. Ridiculous price? Then don't buy it. Stating publicly that it's an outrageous price, then labeling Jim a cheater is a childish display of mental and/or physical self-inadequacy. The ONLY thing I can agree upon, is that yes, Katy Perry would indeed add value to the deal.

I certainly hope it is NOT true that Jim is getting out of pulling.. he's one of the nicest guys, and certainly someone I look forward to seeing several times a year along with his wife, son and daughter.

SIDENOTE:

Josh,

CAFPC has added 3250,4000,5000, & 6000# weights to it's 4&5mph class roster. There may also be a new 3mph 15.5 TC class using the same rules as 4&5mph (old 3mph remains relatively unchanged). Details of the 3mph class split will be discussed, debated, and voted on at the next CAFPC meeting. I'm hoping the 3TC idea will generate great interest with a little promotion (and maybe even coax my angry friend Brad Turner and his Dark Horse 88 to join us again). On March 30th, we'll know how this idea plays out with the membership.

Ethan

Just want to see a picture of a floater hitch. Though you might have one since you know so much about it. Would it work on my snow blade?

You know a lot of times you have to consider the source that is posting stuff like this!Jim has pulled against me going on at least 15 years.I don't usally speak out very much,but this time I will because when Jim started pulling he actually told me he was coming after me because I had a M then that was hard to beat.Jim proved his point and made me a way better puller.I will also tell you I have had so much help along the way from Jim and a group of very good friends that will help you to beat each other to make all of us better pullers.That is what makes you a good tractor puller,not cheating or being accused of it.Start pricing out stuff to build a M just like Jims and see what you come up with!!!!!!!!!!!P.S don't forget to include your time you have in it!!!Good luck.

Jim is a great puller and most of all a great person. I have teched his tractor several times at sigourney and I can guarantee that his hitch doesn't "float". I personally really hope Jim doesn't sell the M and can keep on making people like you look for excuses.

Jim is a very respecfull person. You shouldnt talk bad about him. As far as the price for that tractor that is a deal. To build an engine that cubic inch costs more than 27500.00 Jim has always been very competitive and a very good person to ask a question and get answers from. If he is cheating with his hitch you could bet that he would have been called out on it. Pullers at those pulls always watch everything. You should build a tractor once that is as competitive as his and see what money you have in it. Just my opinion. Dave Thompson jr.
