Aiming for a Full Pull at Mullahead

Entries are now open for all Tractor Pulling classes at the 2017 Mullahead Ploughing Match. The popular event is always hotly contested with over 50 tractors competing throughout the day, drawing a huge crowd to the Richardson Estate, Portadown.  Mullahead & District Ploughing Society are delighted to welcome back Heatrick’s as the sponsor for this event and also the Gladiator Sledge Team.

Organisers are inviting tractors and drivers in six weight classes (as seen on the Mullahead website) to come and test their driving metal at one of Northern’s Ireland’s largest Tractor Pulling competitions. The competition is an excellent spectator event as driver’s attempt to make the “full pull” against the weighted sledge. Ego’s are on the line!
