2012 Pullers Team

We are very glad to report that our A-team has won 5th place for the overall competition, 1st place on maneuverability, and 2nd place for the 1500 lbs low hitch pull.

Our X-team won two awards: written report award and 2nd place overall. It was so good that “Penn State” was announced four times during the Award Banquet on Sunday evening.

This year 27 A-teams, 12 X-teams participated in this competition.

We are so proud of our team members for their extraordinary achievements, and grateful for their excellent design and fabrication, collaboration, hard work, and great amount of time spent on this tractor.

Seth Bich, Sam Descutner, Nathan Chess, Jennifer Mapes, Josh Lounder, Kasey Rishel, Chase Mitchell, Kyle Heffner, Nathan Drzal.
