Welcome To AcmeCatapult.com!

Congratulations! You’ve found the official website for ACME Catapult, LLC!

The Acme Catapult is the tandem axle monster pumpkin catapult machine capable of hurling refrigerators and lawn tractors high into the air, or throwing a ten-pound pumpkin over 2,000 feet! The ACME Catapult has been seen on national television hurling large appliances on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and also throwing lawn equipment high into the air on ABC’s “My Kind of Town”.  You may have also seen the Acme Catapult tossing pumpkins on the TLC Special “Punkin Chunkin”, which was filmed at the 2002 World Championship Punkin Chunkin competition in Delaware.

ACME at Rantoul Farm Show

The WCPC association has asked us to display the ACME Catapult at the Rantoul Half Century of Farm Progress Show, August 22nd through 25th. We will be set up with all kinds of Punkin Chunkin swag available for any donation to the World Championship Punkin Chunking Association.



We recently got a visit from our Punkin Chuckin friends from Belgium.  We had a great time with them and had a fun cookout where we launched a couple frozen melons in their honor.

Lunch at Starved Rock State Park.

ACME Catapult featured as part of the NEW American Badass Grill Promo with Kid Rock !!!

We were so stoked to be included in the early promo filming for the New ALL American Made BADASS GRILL.  The secret location in rural Alabama was a perfect spot to show off our catapults ability to hurl most anything, including 25+ pound grills high enough for Kid Rock and crew to riddle them with buckshot!  Check out the short promo video…
