Purdue used to have a group as well. They organized pulls at the campus for many years.

ASABE 1/4 Scale Design Competition
Many Land Grant Schools heavily involved with this program.

My son was on the ASABE team at Illinois. The last tractor he helped with had 5-16hp Vangard engines, a custom transmission that I think Tim Engler was involved in building and a Winters quick change rear axle. Used belts similar to blower belts to attach engines to a common shaft drive. The team won the pulling portion of the competition easily and the overall competition. One of the team members was pulling a stock ITPA garden tractor at the time, and another is Jacob Kessler who just pulled in Louisville. Really a neat competition, and the kids learned a bunch. They had T shirts made with a picture of their tractor and the logo "Fueled by gasoline, designed by alcohol."
My son sent me the rules every year to try and find the "gray" areas they could exploit. The kids had a true tractor puller mentality.

Appalling incident at Stanford tractor pull meeting March 15, 2023 05:09AM
The Stanford tractor pulling club had an incident last week that embarrassed the university.

A national tech official was invited by the John Deere Society campus chapter to give a lecture about turbos and the new Nichols twd tires. A bunch of mask-wearing students interrupted him and wouldn't shut up so he could speak. Then the DEI official sided with the students.

It seems the tech official has voiced opinions that a tractor's engine should match the sheet metal. The students and DEI official feel this is discriminatory against tractors assigned Deere at birth, but who identify as Case-IH, Moline, Claas, or Fendt. The tech official was called tractorist and accused of Deeresplaining.

More to come.....

I have a hard time believing John Deere has a club at Stanford or any University.

Pretty sure that was the point of the post. A little comedic relief.

What was the team from down south years ago (back in the 70s) that had an Allis Chalmers, a 190 I think called Cracker Jack?
