Antique Tractor & Powder Pull

Join us Saturday August 19th in the Grand Arena from 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. to see us work our tractors magic.

 

The Tractor Pull is sponsored by the Utah Antique Machinery Association. Members have restored many antique tractors from John Deere’s, Farmall, Allis Chamlers, etc.

We then come together at the Utah County Fair with our restored tractors to show off our restored tractors. We pull heavy objects to see whose tractor is not only good looking, but the strongest too!

 

Don’t forget the girls, we love these tractors too! We’ve been working just as hard as the men, so be sure to see the Powder Puff Pull at 1:00 p.m.

 

Come hear and see these restored tractors put on a show at the County Fair Tractor Pull on Saturday, August 19th from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the Main Arena (free event).
