Interesting rides, those high crops.

Not super common here in Maine.

What size are the rear tires for comparison?

It's not a high crop just a Farmall cub. It has 24" wheels in the rear and 12" in the front.

The 310+8 did well today. I pulled 2140 lbs for a full pull. I came in 3rd place. I'll have to make sure I weigh 1500 lbs for the next pull.

Well I have it weighted down the seat is on and I changed up the wheely bars. We'll see how this beast handles the stone boat on this Saturday if the weather is favorable.

Tony my Cinnamon Horse with winter weights, plow, and me.. is well over 1300 lbs.

 

I run an NOS Wheelhorse belt and have Zero issues.

 

Back, forth, many many many times...

That’s a lot of weight too...but the tractor isn’t pulling 2-3000 extra pounds.
