10,000LB Super Pro Farm Tractors
These Diesel Tractors must weigh in at 10,000 pounds. This used to be the old 11,000 Super Pro Farm class, but it was decided that more tractors would participate at that requirement. These behemoths have a 540 cubic inch engine limit. They can have Intercoolers and water injection is also allowed. They are allowed 1 turbo charger with 3.0" inlet. They must have a rollbar for protection. The maximum tire width is 24.5" and rim diameter is maximum 38".
Several of these tractors flex their muscle on other stages such as the Keystone Winter Nationals (website).
Full Pull for the Mechanical Bull in 2016! Thurman Munford went line to line, but not without a little bit of drama. Oh, he had his running mate E L Harlow nipping at his heels along with this kid from South Boston name Billy Rice. Thurman held on with his famous side shields and kept his tractor on top all year long. Winning at his hometown, Isle of Wight was a big thrill for him. He also got big wins in Madison, Rockville, Fredericksburg, and Orange basically everybody else's back yard.
Congrats to Thurman, Junior, and crew for the good work on the Mechanical Bull in 2016.
