Welcome to the Official Equalizer Garden Tractor Pulling Website!!
This is a website dedicated to our sport of garden tractor pulling. We tractor pull in Westmoreland, Fayette and Greene Counties in southwest Pennsylvania from May through October. Thank you to those who made last season a great one. We want to welcome any new pullers who will be joining us on the upcoming season. There is a great deal of information on our site, and some photos too.
It was a nice hot afternoon for the pull this weekend at the Mountain Pines Campground. As always the food for the covered dish picnic was wonderful! Glad so many of you could make it. We will be off for a few weeks. The next pull is Saturday, September 13 at 12:00 noon and it will also be a covered dish picnic. Get out your favorite recipes for your covered dish. Hope to see you there.
Good luck to all our students, faculty, lunch ladies, custodians, bus drivers, administrators and staff as they return to school this week. Please watch for bus stops and remember to slow down in the school zones.
Have a safe and happy Labor Day.
The date for the Annual Pullers Banquet is Sunday, October 19, at 2:00 PM at the Hunker Fire Hall.

Recently added to our directions page are approximate address locations for all of the pulls. This may be especially helpful for anyone who is new with us, or have been with us for a while and not attended one of the pulls at a particular location.
