Diesel Performance Podcast


Sep 23, 2016

Tom Venhuizen became a sled operator when he realized it cost too much to build and run a sled pull truck. Now he can say he makes money at every sled event he attends! Tom joined the podcast to share a few stories about the operation of the Mechanical Mule. He explains how the mule works and how it has changed over the years. A newer pulling sled can be bought from two manufacturers, but Tom bought his back in the 1970s and has modified it extensively. Every year the pulling sled is inspected in preparation for the upcoming season for safety reasons. Although he may be along for the ride, Tom is also able to shut down the pull if it becomes unsafe. If you're interested in sled pulling, you won't want to miss this episode.
