Recommended Posts

has anybody here ever done pedal pulls with there kids? or seen others pull. i notice our county fair has the pedal tractor pulls this week. i did a little research tonight and found some pics. most of them look like newer pedal tractors and they are all running larger wheels.

Around here (NW Ohio), the orginizers always supply the tractors. Sometimes they have more than one, since kids can be pretty stubborn about the wrong color tractor. But they usually have bigger tires and are geared down so the kids can get better torque. I know one group that has their own plywood track so they can set it up anywhere and always have a smooth surface. There is another group that has an old garden tractor that they converted to pedal power so adults could join the fun.

The tractor that I use for my sled is a Cub Cadet pedal tractor that is stock.The sled is made out of garage door track and I do have 350 lbs weight that I use to stop those little darlings.We use the same tractor for all kids up to 120 lbs. The sled works great for the adults also. I have a old 728 simplicity that I put pedals on and it is a lot of fun.There are pictures on www,wisteam-engine.com

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
