If I use a rope to pull something, which one should I use?
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.
In my opinion, he's probably referring to "track," not tract
