Saying good bye to my pull toy.


Recommended Posts

Just sold my 1066 puller to a fellow in Missouri.  Kind of a tough decision, but I need funds to complete the 5088 puller.  Bought the 10 in 1996 at a auction, had loads of fun with it.   Farmed a bit then pulled quite a bit.    It is time to let someone else enjoy it.  I have been doing some updating for the new owner.  Built a new pull hitch, eliminated 3 pt and hydraulics, next is widen the wheels.

Just change the handle to “Gonzo 5088”. Sometimes that is a tough decision but by the looks of your new one you should still get a pretty big smile when it gets finished.

Nothing beats a 88 series puller...

I'm sure the new one will be a stout pulling one too. Where in Missouri did your 10 go.

X2.  Maybe we can watch it pull in our neck of the woods, if we're ever allowed to gather again.

They had several down here this year. Didn't get to go to any with work and a house remodel. Had several bigger races at the local racetracks cause they got shut down in the states they usually have them.

That's about about an hour and a half from me. They got some good pulls up in that area. Haven't been up there for awhile. Guy I work with goes up to Jeff city about every year. Says the best pulls in this part of the country

Gonzo here is a picture of Wicked 88 that i pull against.  Very tuff running tractor on booze.  I hope you are keeping with smoke.  Good Luck and Merry Christmas.

Can't imagine the rush from pulling those hot tractors.  All I've ever pulled is my old 14 and it's a pretty good one just on it. Can't imagine one of those hot ones.

Nice butt shot.       I know that the rear weight bracket is very high.   I built it that way when the 3pt was still in place.    I assume that the new owner will lower it some.
