    I’m calling BS on this one. Very simple engines can not run with out air.
    No way this can be true unless we’re being punked. There would have
    had to be some sort of air supply available to the engine. Maybe mounted
    under the tractor or inside the implement? Somethings fishy.

    I'm thinking that's a ferry crossing and they're using the ferry cable and winch to pull the tractor across. It looks to me like there could be a hidden winch in that clump of brush on the other side. The cable is out of sight on the bottom of the river.

    You're right though - internal combustion engines need air, and lots of it, to run as well as a way to discharge the exhaust gases. All our machines here quit when they're submerged.
    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.

    Here's a video of it on youtube. There's no sound of the engine. There's only a sound of the brakes and the plow dragging on the ground. There must be something towing it from the other side.

    Since the one fellow is hanging onto the exhaust pipe and you can see the cable in the beginning it must be electric
