This class has become one of the most popular tractor divisions with USA-EAST in just a couple of years. Tractors running in the ‘Hot Farm’ division are now running so hot that they run very much like their Super Farm cousins. The 2017 season was a super season for the class that showcased a number of very strong tractors and actually brought a field of fifteen of the machines out to a pull this summer.
‘Hot Farm’ tractors welcome tractors that are still used on the farm, but very few from this category wish to test out the strong fields of tractors at USA-EAST pulls. These hot farm machines are strictly purpose built tractors that don’t even show a minor sign of manure or other farm remnants. And the owners treat them more like a family member than an agricultural implement.
The Champion in 2017 was the “Babe” Ford 8000 for Mark Sindlinger from Hadley, Pennsylvania. This is the third time that Sindlinger has garnered the top spot in the Hot Farm Tractor division.
‘Hot Farm’ Tractors were sponsored by Hubner Seed again in 2017 and Hubner will join USA-EAST again in 2018. Hubner Seed and their regional representative Mike Yoder from Sugarcreek, Ohio provide a vital link between the agricultural community at large and the sport of tractor and truck pulling.
The ‘Hot Farm’ Tractor class has stamped itself as one of the up-and-coming divisions of USA-EAST Pulling. Look for more from this class in the future.
