Best of Tractors vs Cars Tug of War
One thing we love about the internet is the fact that there’s a little bit of something out there for everybody. While this applies to all kinds of subjects, it’s especially true for those of us in the automotive world ,where anything you can think of is usually no more than a Google search away.
This video we found today is one of the most unusual we’ve ever seen, featuring a full seven minutes of SUV’s tied to tractors competing in tug-of-wars. And surprisingly, they don’t always go the tractor’s way. I grew up assuming the only thing that could beat a tractor in a tug of war is a bigger tractor, however, some of these SUV’s prove that to be dead wrong. In fact, right off the bat, a pretty nondescript looking Porsche SUV easily drags a shmedium sized tractor right on down the road as if it was nothing.
While these tugs don’t always go the way of the mom-mobiles, it is genuinely impressive to see how some of these SUV’s do against tractors that at least look as if they’d have no problem dragging anything they were tied to. Of course, after seeing the SUV’s holding their own, some of the tractors pull off surprises of their own, so this video will literally keep you guessing as to which of the rides have the upper hand.
My personal favorite is the Hummer H2 tied to the bright blue tractor. The tractor does it’s very best to move the hefty GM SUV, but only manages to spin its tires. However, as soon as the driver of the Hummer drops the hammer, it drags the tractor so hard that it looks as if the farm implement is actually going to roll into the back of the SUV. I think the driver of the tractor was caught a little off guard by the Hummer, leaving him wide open to be yanked around, but it makes for a good laugh for sure.
