Default STUCK IN THE MUD?

While this may work with a tractor that is stuck in the mud, it may not be so good to use when your 'Bird gets stuck, it may just put some scratches on the paint

I have never seen that done on a wheel tractor. I once owned a Cat D-4 track layer type tractor that I got hopelessly stuck in the mud. My 85 year old great uncle came out to survey the situation...had me chain some 4x4 post across the front of tractor chained to the tracks (cross ways). Now, when I tried moving the tractor it pulled those 4x4 post under the tractor ...like driving up onto a platform built in the mud. Worked perfect, just drove out!

I have done that by chaining rail road crossties across the dual wheels on a 66 GMC C60 well drilling truck.
That's some scary stuff doing that.
We did get the truck out but man does it ever jump when those ties come around!
Well drilling trucks are a little top heavy too.
Hold my beer and watch this!!!

I like that idea. We have one spot on our farm that gets a little wet. I tend to get stuck in 4x4 mode when I spray the apples that are planted near there. I may have to try that. I could do that on the front and back axle.

I'm in for chaining the logs on the wheels! I'll make sure the camera is rollin'

Check out this tractor...I used one in our vineyard for spraying, had a section that was always muddy and would have to avoid with other tractors...this one would walk through there with no problem! http://www.acamerica.com/dynamic/cat...&idM=&vType=1&

You know Marc I had several of those soft spots and I found that if you get about 5 bales of hay and broadcast it 3-4 inches thick on top and let it settle in, it kindof works like plywood and makes the ground solid again... its easy and lasts for years...
