Tractor Pull New Zealand asked Company-X to build tractor racing event management software and tractor sled control software.


New Zealand's leading tractor pull association with events nationwide for all to attend.

Tractor Pull NZ (TPNZ) was established to promote tractor pulling in NZ as a dynamic and entertaining class of the motor sport.

Focused on Weight Transfer tractor pulling we feel this style has the most potential and future for NZ conditions. No engine management issues, no cheating or conditional derating (or over-rating), no time-consuming Dyno sessions, weight transfer pulling is as simple as "weight equals traction".

TPNZ supports all classes of pulling machines. Standard, Modified, Pre 85, Trucks, etc are all welcome. If it has a drawbar, chances are you can pull with it!


Tractor Pull New Zealand switched from weighting a tractor sled with concrete blocks to a weight transfer pulling system that lifted the tractor on electronic rams to create pull resistance.

The electronic rams were computer-controlled, but the available software was unreliable, difficult to use, and largely unsuitable for a competitive environment.


Company-X built robust and feature-rich software for Tractor Pull New Zealand that was easy to use. The software enabled the tractor sled hardware to detect and provide simple, instant adjustments to the tractor pull. The solution also managed all the data and reporting on competition day, including competitors, classes, heats, and results. The software greatly increases the efficiency and flexibility of events.


Tractor Pull New Zealand Chairman Vaughan Coy said the software that Company-X built included features he and the association had forgotten they had asked for.

This made Coy and the association more confident in the new software than in the old software they had been using for two years.

The support and backup Tractor Pull New Zealand received from Company-X extended well beyond expectations.

“Tractor Pull New Zealand Inc has no hesitation in recommending Jeremy and the team when you need someone who can listen, produce and deliver a piece of mission-critical software to a standard you can rely on.”
