Ariens Horsepower?

We went to the winter agricultural fair today and took in the Canadian Heavy Horse Pulling Championship. The heavyweight champions were a team from Brillion Wisconsin. They pulled a stoneboat loaded with 11,000 lbs. of concrete blocks and shingles. A little Ariens influence maybe?

It amazes me how much those horses do pull and on sand which makes it exponentially harder. 5.5 tons is more than what my 15hp Ariens can hope to dream pulling.

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

Normex,
This is with a 6.5HP engine, a 15HP engine properly geared may very well pull those 11000 lbs there.
