A-1 Miller's Fully Computerized Stuska Water Brake Engine Dynamometer (Dyno) Service with DPM Data Logger Software!

For performance testing engines up to 200hp at speeds up to 12,000 RPM. The only engine dyno service in Missouri for Kohler pulling engines! Fully operational and 100% accurate, customers can rent dyno time, fine tune and make adjustments or changes to their engines to gain maximum horsepower and torque, and print-out the results so their tractor(s) will be truly competitive on the track. With an engine dyno, the puller can adjust their engine to get maximum horsepower and torque, and gear their tractor appropriately to have an advantage over the competition. NOTE: A fresh-built engine may not produce full power until it's broke-in. This is when the valves wear-in with the seats to completely seal in the compression. The rings will likely hold the compression, but the valves may leak slightly until they wear into the seats. This is normal for all engines and may take several hours or pulls to happen, then the valves will be able to hold full compression. Lots of pullers tell me after I've built their engines that it seems to pull stronger every time they pull it.

Engine Dyno Rental Fee: $50.00 per hour run time from the moment the engine is started. No setup fee for Cub Cadet engines with a 3- or 6-pin/stud clutch driver. An adapter may need to be needed or fabricated for other makes and models of engines. Only engines with the narrow base oil pan can be tested. Engines with the wide base (tall) oil pan cannot be tested at this time.

Coming Soon - Detailed Illustrated Plans on How to Construct a Professional Pull-Back and Self-Propelled Garden Tractor Pulling Sled. FYI - The professionally-built self-propelled pulling sled, Track Master (click the picture to the right to see a larger image of this sled), is the only one I've ever built and I got it right the first time, with very few changes that had to be made to it. I guess I'm just one of those kind of guys that knows what he's doing. Pullers really like pulling our sled, too. They say it's the best sled they've ever pulled. (Not bragging, just stating a fact.) By the way - Track Master sled is engineered so well (by Brian Miller), that other sled builders/owners have copied my well thought-out and proven design. Anyway, I have lots of work to do in my shop and I work on the sled plans in my spare time. As soon as my plans with an inventory list of parts to use are perfected, I'll post the update in my websites. Remember - Perfection takes time. If it's worth having, it's worth waiting for. Also, I plan to acquire a bigger shop and I may build high quality garden tractor pulling sleds in the future to offer for sale. Please call me at 573-256-0313 (shop) or 573-881-7229 (cell; when leaving a voice message, please speak slowly when giving your phone number), or email me at if you're interested. - Brian Miller

Adding A Little Flair To Your Tractor!

It may not be traditional or even well received in many circles, but there is something to be said about spicing up your rig for competition. So, how do we do this without going down the path of the low rider and monster truck?

The first thing to take a look at is the paint job. You can stick with the classics if you really want to. Red and green are solid colors that you are going to see represented in spades. If you want to stand out from the crowd, you can stay in the same spectrum while diverging slightly from the norm. Deeper reds or greens will seem more intense and serious, but brighter colors will appear as playful and exciting.

You can also take the paint job to an entirely new realm. Metallic red is not a finish you see very often on the tracks or in the fields. A few other competitors may scoff and laugh, but they will not be laughing once you've won. It's not a complete divergence from tradition, but it will stand out and set you apart. I would avoid sparkly paint jobs or anything that is too gaudy and busy. Sure it may be striking, but there is never anything classy about zebra stripes or leopard print. There is a difference between having a little flair and having no class.

Upgrade the horn. Nothing draws attention quite like train horns can and I have known a few people who have added these to their tractors. It's not the normal upgrade or the most practical option, but it sure is a bold one. One note, do not use train horns inside. Save these blasts of sound for the outdoor events where you can let go without blowing out any eardrums. Just one more thing to consider before running out to find the best pricing on train horns.

Beware of the Dog Pit Bull II tires are completely different from the Original. Improved features include:
  • 26-12.00x12 4 ply Puller tire
  • U.S. Patent no. D461,764
  • 32 Chevron Bars Staggered 1/4". Cut tread design is molded into each tire.
  • Reinforced corners and the tip of the bars are staggered 1/4" and have off-set tread with 1/2"+ tread depth.
  • Tread height: 1/2", 85" average circumference. / 12" wide tread, 33.5 lbs. average weight each, No hardening necessary.
  • Tread Height: 1/2". Full 12" tread width footprint. Tire is designed so the entire width of the tread lays flat on the ground, even with more than enough air pressure.
  • Extra hard rubber compound. Which means no hardening or sharpening required - they're ready to pull!
  • Flexible sidewalls. Sidewalls are designed to bulge out instead of wrinkle which allows the tire to maintain constant forward force while also allowing the tire to lie fully flat thus creating the most footprint while also having the necessary pressure to force the tire forward.
  • 1-1/4" height difference from center of crown to edge of tread when inflated to 7 p.s.i.
  • Tough tread. Excellent for high tire speed garden tractors and small wheel (26-12.00x26 tires) mini-rods with an automotive engine!
