Antique Tractors Show Off Pulling Power at State Farm Museum

Danny Chapman pushes his Farmall “Appalachian Puller” to its limits in the 5,000 lbs. Class at the WV State Farm Museum’s Antique Tractor Pull.

The West Virginia State Farm Museum’s Annual Country Fall Festival, held October 7th and 8th, featured its annual Antique Gas Engine Show and Antique Tractor Pull along with a Community Educational Outreach Services (CEOS) Quilt Show, Antique Bottle Show, Entertainment, Country Kitchen and Store, Apple Butter and Apple Cider making.

This year marks the second year of pulling for Danny Chapman of Point Pleasant. Chapman has competed at tracks in Indiana, Tennessee, and Ohio in addition to West Virginia.

His performance depends upon the track. Chapman said that success on one track at a given pulling weight does not translate to success on a different track.

Antique and Classic Tractors must have been produced in 1959 or earlier. Engines must be of the same make and number of cylinders as originally equipped. Custom or modified wheels, hubs, front axles, or lower bolsters : allowed, but distance from front to rear axles must remain as original.
