Washed it and waxed it tonight, off to the show it goes tomorrow. Hopefully the owner will be happy with how it turned out. I know I am.

What show are you headed to? I missed Wauseon, OH this year and will be out west during Buckley (northern Michigan). Hoping to acquire some of my grandfathers collection but still waiting for that to all be figured out.

I think the owner really liked it. We both pulled it, I was able to get 26x.xx feet out of it, and with giving up almost 600 lbs for the class it fit in I was happy with a 4th place finish.
I will post pics later but its now bed time. I am not sure how far the 2nd hook was I am guessing 175-200 ft. It was his first time pulling in a tractor pull, I think he is "hooked".

Tractors are hauled home and the show was a good time again this year. I got the official Friday night pull results and My pull on the 620 was 227.9 and it was 5th place, the Owner's pull and first tractor pull ever was 168.83. I think it would really benefit from a front weight set but I know they are super pricey.
