Peterson Portable Sawmills

Tractor Pulling in Ohio, USA

In between trade shows on a recent trip to the USA, our Marketing Manager Layla Robinson and her boyfriend Robert Crafar saw some American muscle… of the tractor kind. They met with friends and Peterson mill owners Tom and Kate Doepker, and their two kids Zack and Taylor in Cleveland Ohio, before heading off to a Tractor Pull at a local county fair. This picture was taken at the show, and is a modified John Deere tractor with multiple turbine engines.

Tractor pulling has been a popular sport since the 1960s. Combining the strength of a tractor, and the power of supercharged V8s and Helecopter turbines, these modified machines rate up to 5,000hp at 100mph wheel speeds.
