Making a return this year after COVID-19 shut the country down in both 2020 and 2021, the Keystone Nationals Tractor and Truck Pull is back this weekend in Harrisburg Pennsylvania. A lot of the best trucks and tractors in the east make the annual trip to compete in this highly prestigious indoor event every March. As spring arrives, both pullers and spectators alike get excited about the upcoming pulling season. Over the winter months a multitude of off-season maintenance and reconstruction project take place on each and every tractor and truck. This is no exception to the team and tractor we are about to reveal today.
Devin Riggin and the Bandit Pulling Team has spent many months in preparing their tractor for its debut this week at the Keystone Nationals. Devin has long been around pulling, getting his start in western Pennsylvania with Westmoreland Tractor Pullers. He started off like many others pulling stock tractors and worked his way up through the ranks. A few years back Devin had a devasting blow to his tractor pulling dreams when his shop burnt to the ground with his pulling tractor in it. After many years he has been able to get back into pulling with his all new Limited Pro Tractor called “The Bandit”.
Those who follow Full Pull Productions know that Devin was able to actually get the tractor running last year about mid-summer. Right out of the gate the tractor made some fantastic runs and showed that it could compete in the series with the best of them. While the tractor was running fantastic at the end of the summer it wasn’t quite where the team wanted it. The chassis and drive train components were definitely headed in the right direction while the exterior sheet metal was a “work in progress”. After the season concluded Devin went to work on making the tractor look as good as it ran. He completely tore the tractor down to bare bones and started to add all the finishing touches that makes it as beautiful on the outside as it is powerful under the hood.
Debuting this weekend on Saturday is the newly finished “Bandit” John Deere 4620. You will want to make your way over to the pits and check this tractor out. Bandit Fabrication LLC is an up-and-coming fabricator in Western PA.
