Power Pullers:

Chairs: Adam McDermott almcd75@iastate.edu

The Power Pullers committee was formed to inform the club of their progress in the 1/4 scale tractor design. The ISU Cyclone Power Pullers competes in the ASABE 1/4 Scale Tractor Student Design Competition. Team members gain practical experience in the design of drivetrain systems, tractor performance, manufacturing processes, traction force analysis, weight transfer, strength of materials, safety and testing.

Fountain Wars:

The Fountain Wars committee serves as a link between ASABE and the Fountain Wars competition. The Fountain Wars committee meets weekly on Thursday afternoons in various labs in Sukup. Their competition is annually during the Annual International Meeting.

Executive Committee:

The ISU ASABE Branch executive committee consists of the officers, committees, advisors, and any club member who wants to become more involved in the student chapter.  The committee meets before each regular branch meeting to prepare and approve the agenda.  The committee also handles special needs that arise between regular branch meetings that are not deemed worthy of a full branch vote.
