Anybody could tell me the meaning difference among:
pull, haul and tract?

If I use a rope to pull something, which one should I use?

Thank you very much!

@littlebee01cn,
I have actually never hear 'tract' used with this meaning of pull, LB. Given that a 'tractor' is a thing that "tracts", I can see where it could be an English verb, but neither of the first two dictionaries I checked listed it as a verb.

'pull' is neutral, whereas 'haul' denotes a hard or difficult pull.

In my opinion, he's probably referring to "track," not tract. Very Happy

Is 'track' listed in some Chinese-English dictionaries as a verb/synonym of 'pull', Ori?
