Looking for advice on finding a puller.

I am looking for a pulling garden tractor. Not many for sale in my area (Beaver County PA)
I posted a wanted add in our forums here, and wondering where else I can look? Im old school and dont do Facebook.
Any Ideas would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Re: Looking for advice on finding a puller.

Daron,

Looks like you want a "Pulling GT".

For personal/professional use, not for Recreational Tractor Pulling?

For personal use, with slopes, I would recommend a post 1986 GT6000 with the Manual 6-Speed with High/Low Differential.

If your property is VERY FLAT, a Hydrostatic Transaxle would be your best bet!

If there is ANY Altitude change (variation in lawn height) I would HIGHLY recommend the manual Transaxle.

Any chances of using a Snowplow, Manual is your best bet.

Good luck with your search!

Re: Looking for advice on finding a puller.

I think he is talking about a tractor for pulling competitions....Am I right?

I am no expert......Read through the pulling section on this forum, should give you some tips

They say that Cub Cadets with a manual trans and disk type clutch is the way to go.
A lot of the 60s-70s Garden tractors are quite competative from what \I have read on here

Re: Looking for advice on finding a puller.

Poncho62,

I'd almost KILL for a Cub Cadet "Shaft Drive" to upgrade my 1987 GT6000...

He isn't very consistent as to what he is looking for.

I'm hoping that "we that are frequent in this forum" can assist him!

Sadly, alot of new users do not understand how we "roll"!

I'm hoping for more information to fulfill his/her request for dirrection.

Happy Fall EVERYONE!

Sir,

I Have posted very little on here for that exact reason. Being quoted as if I said something that I did not. I even checked my very few posts over the last 8 years as a member on here to make sure I did not forget something.

Thank you.

Have a great evening.

Re: Looking for advice on finding a puller.

Well old school or not... Facebook is the place to look... there is at least 3 sites that I can think of with several thousand members each.... most garden tractor forums such as here at MTF dont attract alot of serious pulling fans.
