ABOUT COMPONENT TRACTORS
New rule changes have allowed people like yourself to build tractors out of individual components for several reasons. Probably the biggest reason is the horsepower being produced is taking its toll on cast iron parts, which by nature have to be heavy to be strong.
Modified pulling tractors and trucks have used road truck, log skidder, custom transmissions and other components for some time with good results, and now tractors can be taken to the next level.
ACE is here to help.
Whether you have already built, or planning to build, there is something for every budget.
Catering to the do it yourselfer, you will be able to browse the inventory, get ideas, and purchase individual parts, as much or as little as you want.
ACE has developed a standard chassis that is offered as a kit that you can weld together yourself, add on as many options as you want, or custom make your own accessories if you feel comfortable doing so.
All products have been designed to fit and use proven components such as rear gears, brakes, planetaries and weights. If you want something besides what is offered here, there is no guarantee what you want will fit these chassis. (or work at all)
Our standard roll cage kits fit and look great on these chassis, although SFI inspection and certification is required after welding.
Rear housing and hitch plates are designed to withstand punishment of multi-engine modifieds.
ACE specializes in the design and manufacture of lightweight products for tractor pulling, and precision machining and fabricating of ferrous and non-ferrous materials including aluminum, titanium and magnesium
For those of you who are new to the sport, or just want to learn more about building a component pulling tractor, keep reading. If you already know it all, skip to prices.
Chassis - holds engine, tranny, rearend, steer axle and driver
Roll Cage - Keeps driver in between tires and off hood (see 5 point harness)
Engine - provides power to transmission, and adrenaline rush to driver
Transmission - Large speed reducer, usually with multiple gear ratios and reverse
Rear end - further reduces speed and converts power from engine to both wheels
Planetaries - Even more speed reduction - holds brake rotors and wheels
Brakes - useful for steering and avoiding spectators
Brake Rotors - just like your truck, only bigger
Weight racks/brackets - balance is the key. Useful for Friday night workouts between classes
tractor pulling forum - a screaming mob pounding on a greasy spot on the pavement, where there used to lie the carcass of a dead horse.
If you are up to the challenge of building your own tractor, check prices and compare features from other suppliers. Look at their products. Look at the welding. Look beyond the BS and promises. Ask about service after the sale. Look at the final fit and finish and compare prices. You will save money (and get a superior product in most cases). Start with a proven winning chassis from ACE.
Where ideas are built - one weld at a time
Everything else is just a waste of tubing.
Yeah. Lets build that...
The tractor that's in your head.
