"Okay. So here is what you do, you just sneak up in front of them, and then honk! And they do the rest. Watch this!"
Mater teaches Lightning how to play Tractor Tipping.

The Tractors are characters in the Cars franchise.


"The earliest domestication of the North American tractors can be traced back to the 1800s during the construction of the first continental railroad. Railroaders quickly discovered the tractors' ability to create level grades across even the most demanding geography. Today the native plains tractor is regarded as one of the true pioneers of the West."[1]

"Tractors are hard workers. They enjoy what they do, plowing through the fields on a nice warm day, and then falling asleep under the moonlight. But every so often they wake up to the sound of snorting and giggling trailing off into the distance, and they find themselves lying on their backs staring up at the stars. But they don't mind. It's actually kind of nice to get to sleep lying down for a change."[1]

They appear when Mater decides to take Lightning McQueen tractor tipping. Later, they appear in McQueen's dream of Frank winning the Piston Cup, when a stampede comes into Radiator Springs, and at the Radiator Springs Drive-In Theatre.

Mater and the Ghostlight

In Mater and the Ghostlight, when Mater thought he was being chased by the Ghostlight, he zoomed past some tractors in Frank's field, causing them to tip.

Unidentified Flying Mater

In Unidentified Flying Mater, when Mater was taking Mator tractor tipping, he honked his horn and tipped a tractor. Then Mator did a louder honk that created a crop circle design and tipped all of the other tractors in the field.


In DisneyToon Studios' Planes, during Dusty's training montage, some cows appear on the fields. Also, when Ishani is talking to Dusty, a tractor passes them. Then, they fly over a field full of tractors.

  • Tractors can be tipped when they hear horns honking or engines revving loudly. However, in Cars 2: The Video Game, they are easily tipped when you hit them. In Disney Infinity, they can be tipped by both ways.
  • Tractors make a cameo appearance in the background in the 2011 Target Commercial.
  • Tractors also appear in Cars 2: The Video Game along with Frank and you can earn the "Tractor Tipping" badge, if you tip 3 of them in any place you can find them.
