Information about Brian Miller's One-of-a-Kind Motorized/Self-Propelled Garden Tractor Pulling Sled -
This is our pride and joy! Dubbed by many professional pullers as the "best sled in the nation" and it's "way ahead of its time" (not bragging, just stating a fact), "Track Master" pulling sled has style, beauty and grace. Our sled makes tractor pulling look good! It's easy to start, get speed and sure to stop. "Track Master" was designed, constructed and engineered solely by Brian Miller in late 1992 and completed in 1995. It took about 6 months to draw the plans on paper and 2 years (off and on) to build it. A stock 14hp Kohler engine, which sits next to the operator on the rear, propels it. A hydraulically controlled front axle with small steering wheels lowers which raises the skid pan off the ground, making it easy to maneuver. Also, there's no belts or pulleys that operate anything on this sled. It's all heavy duty chains and sprockets, which don't slip.
Professionally-engineered for garden tractors, ATVs/UTVs, motorcycle engine-powered pulling tractors and small-wheel mini rods. The total weight of the entire sled is about 6,000 lbs. There's about 2,000 lbs. in the weight box, which has 8 control [distance] speeds. When the box is in the rest position at the rear, the front of the sled (skid pan) is very light, making the sled easy to launch. When the box is "topped out," about 5,400 lbs. or 90% of the total weight of the sled is transferred over the skid pan, stopping pulling tractors efficiently. This sled can be used for all garden tractors, light- to heavy-weight ATVs/UTVs, and with added weight in the pan, it'll stop 1,500 lb. "small wheel" (26-12.00x12 tires) mini rods! "Track Master" is 17 feet long (without towbar) and very functional. It's used mainly in Missouri..
Of course, we've had our share of small malfunctions with this sled from time to time when it was first built, but no major breakdowns that the show couldn't be completed.
We use our sled on dirt/clay tracks only. Rather if it's a small community homecoming, special fund-raising event, county fair, state fair or an NQS event, "Track Master" pulling sled will provide a quality show for all ages to participate in or come to watch. It's easy to start and sure to stop, even on short, indoor tracks. If you have an event and want a crowd drawing attraction, give us a call. And we go wherever our sled and equipment is needed and we operate them.
This is also the official sled of the Hot Rod Garden Tractor Pullers Association. Click the videos below to see our sled in action!
