..... Of the tractor pulling world are the 3.5 and 4.5T Modified Tractors. The One above is Snoopy 3 and run by Team Whittington from near Blackpool. Powered by Rolls Royce Griffon engines from an old Avro Shakleton maritime aircraft and running on a methanol fuel mixture she makes the ground shake as she passes towing that heavy sledge.
The one below is called Desperate Dan and is powered by either 4 or 5 V8 Chevrolet engines depending on the class being pulled. Another noise maker and ground shaker.
Turbine powered machines also from part of this class with Le Redoutable from France running with four 4 Isotov TV3-117M Turbines, the same as used in the Russian Mil-24 helicopter. A different sound to the V8s but just as powerful.
