Half a dozen tractors are powering along Tasmanian roads this weekend at top speeds of 40km/h.
The farming machines have broken free of their paddocks to raise money for the Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association bushfire appeal.
The Great Tasmanian Tractor Drive started at Smithton on Friday and will finish in Hobart tomorrow, organiser Kyle Robinson said.
Yesterday they made their way from Ulverstone to Launceston - stopping at every town in between.
``We're getting a great response from people when we stop in towns, and even on the roads, especially considering we're not the fastest-moving vehicles,'' Mr Robinson said.
``Our tins are full and I reckon we have raised between $4000 and $5000 in the first two days.''
Today the drive will head to Oatlands through ``every town on the way''.
First up, the tractors will appear at the Evandale market before the Tasmanian Truck Show at Quercus Park about noon.
The troupe will then aim to be at Campbell Town at 2pm, Ross between 3pm and 4pm and the Oatlands Callington Mill for a family barbecue evening at 4.30pm.
