10,000LB Super Pro Farm Tractors
These Diesel Tractors must weigh in at 10,000 pounds. This used to be the old 11,000 Super Pro Farm class, but it was decided that more tractors would participate at that requirement. These behemoths have a 540 cubic inch engine limit. They can have Intercoolers and water injection is also allowed. They are allowed 1 turbo charger with 3.0" inlet. They must have a rollbar for protection. The maximum tire width is 24.5" and rim diameter is maximum 38". Changes for 2021 included the addition of Hot Farm tractors with 466 cubic inch power plants and allowances to make them competitive with these 540ci machines.
Several of these tractors flex their muscle on other stages such as the Keystone Winter Nationals (website).
E L Harlow is a founding member of this Super Pro Farm class. He has sold parts and put on new ones trying to find that magic combination to get back on top of this class. The part that hurt was watching others do very well with parts he sold them. Talk about equipping the competition. Rest assured this tractor will be buried with the combination of the parts it has on it now. The Harvester harvested the competition for 2021 and will look to continue dominance in 2022. E L puts 31 points on the next nearest competitor.
Congrats to E L, family, and crew on taking this title back to Orange, Virginia.
