I like watching and taking pictures of tractor pulls. I invariably try and make it to the tractor pull arena at Sandwich Fair if circumstances (i.e., ‘family’) permits. So, luckily, I did make it to the pull on Sunday — as you can see from the pictures.
The BIG, bright red sled was NEW. I had never seen one before. I checked my pictures from last year. I did NOT make it to the pull in 2016. I did in 2015. Checked my pictures. They didn’t have that sled in 2015. They were still using yellow sled with concrete blocks.
There was something different about this year’s pulls. The tractors would literally lose steam as they got further up the track. That didn’t make sense to me. You would have thought that momentum would help them. So, I had to ask somebody and luckily they knew. They told me about the magic of the new sled.
The pulling weight increases, automatically, as the pull progresses! Wow. Magic.
I had to come home and look it up. Here is a good YouTube video.
