725 pulling ability

Recommended Posts


I would have to say you will be ok by doing so. But then you have to consider how many barrels you will have and if kids or adults be in them? I think with a dozen barrels with kids you would be fine. I have given my 725 a good work out here and there and I wouldn't be afraid of doing it. Hope this helps out some. Others will chime in as well

I used our 700 at tractor pulls for over 20 years. The sled we pulled weighed over 5000 lb, and we pulled on clay tracks. Never had what I would now call a major problem, sheared keys, broken hub, small things. The barrel train is "nothing" compared to pulling the sled we pulled. I have also pulled my tandem axle trailer with a Ford Mustang on it, using the Simp 700. We drug telephone poles to make a bridge for a Scout project. These tractors are real work horses. It won't pay any attention to the barrel train, especially if it is being pulled on a parking lot or level ground as they usually are. I have seen them pulled by many off-brands that won't hold a candle to a Simplicity.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
