The W.W.P.A. was created by the Tebo's in
Indiana. These guys were attempting to come up
with something new to add excitement to their lives and they
came up with
the idea to build miniatures trucks and
tractors using a standard weed wacker engine. They
had found through much experimentation that the weed wacker
engine with the typical transmission that was built for
theseminiature pulling trucks could not handle the
pulling force that was developed on it. They decided
to upgrade to chain saw engines
(2.0 Cu In.) with gears
and pulleys that would achieve the pulling weights
that were introduced to these vehicles.
Although the trucks and tractors are utilizing chain saw engines
we are still using the W.W.P.A. as our name.
