Is that really Dutch? It is always nice to put a face to the name. Is there a history to that tractor. It does not have any type of identification but it must have a history. Nice pictures, thanks.

The picture is not of Dutch. The homemade tractor I believe placed 3rd in his weight classes. I don't know the history of the tractor other than the guy built it himself several years ago. The Firefly is jet turbine powered with somewhere from 200-300 hp I believe.

I have been getting questions on my pulling sled so I took Some pictures yesterday at our tractor pull at the Mower County Fair in Austin,MN. Just had time to take a few pictures between running the sled and pulling. The sled does have garden tractor turf tires on it. The box holds from 200-2000 lbs. Sled has two speeds for the box to move forward. Our pulling club has classes for tractors weighing from 550-1050 lbs. I set sled weight and speed according to the track. The box tops out at about 80 ft. in the higher speed and about 120 ft. in the slower speed. Also have adjustable chain hook up height on the sled.
