    Dresden, Truck and Tractor pulling 4 more images

    'The easiest way to describe pulling is that the pulling vehicle, being a tractor or a truck, is hooked onto a heavy weight, called a sled. The sled most commonly used today looks somewhat like a flatbed semi-trailer with a weight box on top and a skid plate at the front. The weight box starts at the rear of the chassis of the sled and as the tractor moves forward the weight box moves toward the front of the skid plate. The rear wheels drive the box, through a series of drive lines and gear boxes. The box can be moved at faster or slower speeds by means of selecting a gear in the transmissions of the transfer, and this varies between the different classes of tractor or trucks.'

    The event organised by Southwestern Ontario Tractor Pullers Association.

    Have fun!

    Favorite thing: The Sydenham River supports an incredible variety of aquatic life in the area.

    Several species in the Sydenham River are found nowhere else in Canada, and some remain at only a few locations globally.

    Fondest memory: Twenty-three species of fish, mussels and reptiles which live in and around the Sydenham River are nationally or provincially Species at Risk (see pictures).
