Stabiliser (Wheelie) Bars

Following a recent question seeking advice which was posted on the Forum the following may be of some use. It is an extract from the 2015 ETPC FarmStock Rule Book relating to Stabiliser Bars, better know as 'Wheelie' Bars.

Stabiliser Barrs or Wheelie Bars

Stabilizer Bars

  1. Stabilizer bars are required. The drawbar and drawbar assembly must not be attached to the stabilizer bar assembly in any way.
  2. The stabilizer bars must be a minimum of 200mm behind the rear tires and are allowed to be a maximum of 250mm above the ground. The contact patch must be a minimum of 150cm2, with a minimum width of 100mm. (See also dimensions in sketch attached).

Note: For all classes: The stabilizer bar system must be able to support the weight of the vehicle in the heaviest class pulled. Jacking up the pads, so tractor is completely off the ground will be a good test.
