Tractor Tuesday is a weekly article series that focuses on all things tractors, from the inspiring to the cringeworthy to the downright badass.
From pulling contests in the Midwest to races in Russia to just plain old tomfoolery in the backyard, tractors can be used in a number of extreme off-roading activities. But nothing shows the pure diesel-fueled power of those massive machines quite like a tractor tug of war.
In a video from Cars News Central, we’re treated to some of the best tractor tug of war match-ups to ever go down. After checking out this footage, you’re gonna want to hop into a John Deere and see what this tractor tug of war craze is all about.
So many classic match-ups! The Case IH 550 Trac versus the John Deere 9630t was definitely a pretty epic showdown, given the size of the machines and the muddy terrain they were facing off on. That definitely showed what extreme off-roading is all about. There was also the Tatra 8×8 versus the Claas, which looked to be a mismatch size-wise, but ended in a draw.
Speaking of size mismatches, the tractor vs. non-tractor tug of wars also made for some interesting competitions. You had the Deutz facing off against the Porsche, which really wasn’t even close at all. Then, you had a Fendt taking on a BMW, which showcased the Fendt’s awesome power. The Ursus C-330 put up a decent fight against the Jeep (considering that the Jeep had a 4×4), but ultimately, the Jeep came out on top.
