The grandmother to my AB was pulling right at 3000lb..so could be possible..I have seen APBTs pull that and more...

I am not into it..but I am sure at least one of these folks are into it..or have studied it a little more than myself..I am sure someone on here will have a answer for U..

it is, more than likely, not a typo. last top weight i had heard was 5800. i would imagine things have gone up since then

I thought the record holder for the most weight pulled was a 40 pound pit, guessing it was beat many times already.

I want to maybe get my next pit into that, I don't like how serious they treat it though. I'd rather it be a fun competition.

It's only half strength.. the rest is pure determination!
You can have a strong dog but if they don't want to pull, they won't pull.

You should see Huskies in sled pulls! Or the Bernese Mountain Dogs...they were bred to pull! Don't get me wrong, the APBT is a very strong breed, but there are much stronger breeds out there & they are amazing to watch.

IWPA pulls are fun b/c of the diversity of breeds entered.

that 6100 lb is pulled, not lifted - so the friction in the wheels, and overcoming the inertia are most of the resistance.
but doesn't the surface they pull across vary? (hard surface vs carpet-like surface)
do they ever drag the weight, friction and all, or is it always something on wheels - that sort of thing would make a big difference.

Different pulls are conducted on different surfaces and methods... some pulls are done on a carpeted surface pulling a cart on wheels, others are pulled on a cart on tracks, and yet others are pulled on sleds...when you look at all the pulling organizations and records set, it will tell you what type of pull it was. I have links to multiple weight pull sites on my links page (IWPA, APA, UKC, etc.) feel free to take a peek!

thanks - that's awesome.

...just went outside to check out my own strength...

dragged my house down the block.
no problem for me, but it must be because i have good grip under my shoes, and i did coat the underside of my house with butter.

LOL at dragging the house down the road!

Miakoda, don't forget the rotties. They do something called carting, they pull carts full of people.
