New Case IH Farm Stock in Germany
The new Pulling machine received a homemade steel wedge frame with a steel rollcage, a new homemade hydraulic power steering, a self built drawbar, homemade wheelie bars and a IH 1246 rearend. The hood on the Tractor comes from a Case IH Puma 210 and the steel sheet metal fenders are self made. Also all the sheet metal work on the hood and the chassis were made by Stefan himself. For a good grip on the German pulling tracks he bought a set of used cut Michelin 650/65R42 XM 108 tires on steel rims. The steel rims were built by Matthias Böhling of Schlunder - Metal and Pulling Parts from Groin in Germany.
The Case IH Puma 210 is powered by 6 cylinder IH DT 358 power plant with 6l capacity on diesel fuel.
Owner and driver Stefan Schöler actually wanted to compete again at the rural youth Brush Pulls, but that went a bit out of hand. This year he ran for the first time in the DTTO, but competed because of the overweight on the Tractor outside the evaluation in the 3.5t / 7700lbs Sport class and in evaluation of the 4.5t / 9260lbs Sport class.
Stefan has planned to compete in the German Championship again next year.
