Here's an update from Dave...
Hey There! The 18 (Simplicity 3112 modified) finished 5th out of 20, junior 1100 lb class... one away from a trophy. The 12 (Simplicity 3312) finished 6th out of 12 ,1050 lb. junior, turf class. These are SERIOUS pulling guys here! Warren Co. Fair in NJ. Notice the 26X12.00X12 8 ply tires on the 18 -- pretty cool huh? LOL
A 716 AC 3spd and a 920 AC 3 spd. Diesel won in the senior 1150 lb.cleat and turf classes. The 920,which had TURF tires on it put on a VERY impressive show with black smoke going 25 ft. in the air but I didn't get any pics,

My wife, sons and I arrived at this pull noticing we were the ONLY Simplicity or AC at the pull. I thought "Wouldn't it be nice if we took a trophy away from all these Cubs, Sears Suburbans, and John Deeres today."
Little did I know we would get 3 trophies!! A first and second for the 1100 lb. class and second for the 1200 lb. class -- all in all a wonderful day -- ESPECIALLY when we beat my machinist friend, a Deere owner . . . TWICE!!
Given this much early success, I can't wait to hear more about his new venture into garden tractor pulling with his two sons and two tractors -- especially the 3112 getting modified below -- now sporting an 18hp Kohler twin...
