Tractor Pulling Team Kaiser – Family Affairs Pulling Team. This team is a family pulling team from south Germany. They compete with their Alky-Burner Super Stock tractor called Best Solution in the German championship series and took home the title in 2016.
They started Tractor Pulling in the early nineties and grew up to a top team in the German series. Main thing about the Kaiser Pulling Team is, that it is a family project. They compete with a tractor, based on a 40series John Deere model (see at the end „men and machines“).
They started as a „just for fun team“ in 1993 running regional pulling events. A few years later the claim for more power and professionalism raised and Thomas Kaiser, the team founder and captain, stepped up into German series with the team’s first Super Stock tractor, based on a Deutz 8006 (see at the end „men and machines“).
One year later the team imported a John Deere tractor from the USA to keep up with the top. At this time, Margret Kaiser stepped into pulling driving duties (see at the end „men and machines“).
From the beginning of 2003 the team started with two John Deere Alky-Burner tractors and stepped into European series (Euro Cup) until 2007 to battle with the top of Europe. After an absence of several years, Team Kaiser stepped back on the pulling tracks in 2015. The same time they got announced to be a part of a TV documentation called FULL PULL on DMAX. This season turned out with the third place in the German championship and a lot of nice demo runs in Austria, Switzerland and on German promotion events.
In 2016 the DMAX broadcast went into a second session and Team Kaiser started in a perfect season, capturing the German title one event before the season finale. For 2017 the goal is focused on capturing the title again - and to get another tractor ready to rock and roll in 2018.
Many thanks from The Castiron to Tractor Pulling Team Kaiser!
See you next Friday. - God bless you, all the best! The Castiron
Men and machines.
Men. Team Kaiser was Thomas and Margret Kaiser with their 3 boys Marcus, Stephan and Christoph. Today, the crew increased by the sons’ wives and girlfriends. Many people ask how can it work as a family. The answer is: „It works fine. Everyone got his job. Only together as a team, a family, we can handle it.“ The team’s credo is: „Who grows together, can be strong together.“ And: Margret Kaiser also stepped into pulling driving duties and powered the team’s tractor to a German title. She is the first female driver capturing a national title in Europe. The faith in God is the family’s power to go on, even when things get tough – in sports, interpersonal, anywhere else in life. The team reflects their faith by presenting the conviction on the tractor, on the trailer, in the sports as a personal statement. Therefore, Team Kaiser is part of SRS motorsport since 2015, to connect people in sports and show, that it is not boring and compelled to be a Christian in racing.
Machines. Actually, the 40series John Deere model with stock motor block, 530 cubic inches, 3 turbo chargers in 2 steps, CNC made hemi cylinder head with overhead camshaft and belt drive, MSD ignition, CNC made pistons and rods uses methanol as fuel, creating about 3300 hp at 6500 rpm with 95 psi boost. This tractor is „selfmade“, every single part is manufactured in-house at the Kaiser Performance workshop. A Deutz 8006 was the basic for the team’s first super stock tractor, with 3 turbo chargers, Diesel fuel and about 1100 hp.
