Check out the full list of winners from the 2023 National Fieldays Tractor Pull competition

There’s a certain magnetic pull that the rear corner of Fieldays has for spectators and Tractor Pull fans alike, and the roar of engines when the unmodified section kicks into action always draws in the crowds.

This year was no different, and with horsepower being consistently put to the test in the popular Fieldays Tractor Pull competition, there was plenty of banter between competitors over the four days.

With two competitions — the weight transfer and weight-adjusted section — the line-up of tractors (all makes and models) showed the enthusiasm this competition still attracts.
