Tractor and truck pulling can be a very dangerous sport! The specially designed engines are under extreme amounts of pressure during the pulling competitions. This pressure can cause a fire to start in the engine causing thousands of dollars in damage and the livelihood of the drivers and team. Having a fire extinguisher in the cab of the tractor or truck as well as being carried by the tractor pulling officials is essential for competition safety.
AKE Safety Equipment is excited to have STOP-FYRE be named as the official fire extinguisher of the Outlaw Truck and Tractor Pullers Association. Look or our logo on OTTPA pulling vehicles, banners, flags, on videos and on the website.
