Seeds of change

This year Mutrac is collaborating with Seeds of Change, a crowdfunding campaign helping us get the support to build a tractor that not only performs well on the technical level, but also exceeds in aspects such as maneuverability, safety, and serviceability.

With your help we can focus more of our attention on designing to the best of our capabilities rather than on the financial aspects of participating in the competition. Your donations will be helping each of our team members develop their practical skills, while developing important communication, networking, budgeting, and time management skills. 

Can we count on your help?

Competition results

Mutrac came away 14th place overall at the 2016 annual ASABE International Quarter Scale Tractor Pulling Competition boasting 7th place in Team Presentation and 6th in Design Judging.

Mutrac would like to sincerely thank everyone involved with the team and express our deepest appreciation to McGill University and our team sponsors. Without their support, our attendance at the competition would not be possible.

The team has already begun to look at the design of the new MR18 tractor and are eager to develop advanced testing with our very own pull sled and track. We are confident that we can improve our member structure in order to continue to provide a learning experience for students beyond the classroom.

Field Trip to Canimex

Last Friday, our platinum sponsor Canimex invited our team to their facilities in Drummondville. Canimex hosted an inspiring educational tour and we were extremely well welcomed.

We are very grateful towards Canimex for their renewed support to our team. Without our sponsors, we would not have been able to excel and achieve as much as we have so far.
