Do you have a dusty old Ford tractor beneath a tree in your back paddock? Perhaps there's an old International tucked away in the hay shed with two flat tires. Maybe it's that rundown John Deere 4020 you brought with the farm two decades ago. Did you know these relics can be the perfect launchpad into the exhilarating world of modified tractor pulling—a rapidly growing, family-friendly motorsport?
Imagine this: Diving into that dusty Holden ute in the shed and pulling out the gritty 308. With a dash of determination, a few mates, and a bit more liquid courage than necessary, you could transform these forgotten treasures into modified pulling tractors in just a few short months!
For those with 2 or 3 old Holden utes slowly succumbing to rust on the farm, unleash your creativity and build a multi-engine Frankenstein—a super modified or open modified tractor that's bound to turn heads.
Do you crave an adrenaline rush like never before? Envision slapping a blower on that 308 or throwing a stroker kit into the 351, running it on methanol, and placing it in a chassis weighing under a tonne. Now, picture hurtling down a 100-meter track with a roaring 800-1000+ horsepower at your command!
