Help me out. I'm trying to figure out the footage of the multiple Oil Pulls belted together to the prony brake. What's the story behind that crazy set up? Just an attempt to register more load?

Mike,

Because they can?!?!?

They have belted them for many years at the LaGrange, IN show like that. A true feat of proper alignment. I don't know how much they can pull together.

It was quite interesting. They had one belted to the prony Brake. Then on top of that belt it another belt sent to tractor two. Two to three and three to four. Lots of monkey motion.

I kinda figured it might be a case of doing it because they had the belts and tractors there. Neat set up!

Very Interesting and Fun To Watch.

Don't need any more reason than that.
