Working Field

European Class Tractor Pulling:As always with Dunmore Show, Tractor pulling is inevitable since our first ever show. Using a Ground Driven sleigh purposely built by members of the Dunmore Vintage Club, and weight Classes going from vintage tractors right through to modern day machines

Weight Classes:

3.5 Tonne

4.5 Tonne

5.5 Tonne

6.5 Tonne

8 Tonne

Unlimited weight Class

As always Weight Scales will be present & all Tractors must be weighed for each class they enter.

In the Unlimited Weight class there will be a demonstration of a Modern Day Giant versus a combination of Vintage Tractors. This demo pull is to see how many Vintage Tractors it takes to out-pull the Dunmore Agri Services owned Case Puma 195

Log Skidding

Log Skidding is a new venture by Dunmore Vintage Club, having never been tried in Ireland before but with quite a large following in Europe, it is essentially a Timed race around a circuit consisting of an Uphill part to test power and traction, at the very top of the hill the driver will have to navigate sharp turns where Differential locks will have to be disengaged as they make their way back down the hill to the start finish line. Split up into weight classes of 2.5 Tonne, 3.5 Tonne and 4.5 Tonne This event will be taking place as the Larger classes are competing in the Tractor Pulling
