    The Muck got me...anyone else? Stuck pics, ya know ya got 'em.

    Our North field is glacial cut river bottom. Literally, bottomless black muck and sand...but mostly muck.
    It floods when the snow melts, and it's all about moving water with an old Gorman Rupp to keep up until about mid June, when things can be mowed, sprayed for fungus and cranberrry fruitworm and worked to get last years harvester ruts tamed.

    This year, rain kept me out until the weeds in the wettest section were tractor high.
    I figured things were dry enough finally on Monday. All went well except for wearing the paint off the Diff Lock, and occaisional Irate snapping turtle..until 1400 or so when the bottom fell out.

    Ya know you're in trouble when you slap the throttle and power reverser at the same time, and still can't raise the chopper deck fast enough, then step out from the cab on squishy ground that is even with the cab floor.




    Yep.
    I'm screwed.



    Got the MIL on the 1920, chained off to the chopper tail, raised the chopper all the way, and used it as a fulcrum to break suction on the front, and she backed right out.
    Orchard fenders keep the rooster tails of mud from getting the tractor dirty..don't let anyone fool ya, that's really what they are for.

    So who has some epic stuck pics?

    Thanks for the post Dingeryote. It's always good to see someone else stuck and reinforce the notion, it's not just me.

    I hear there are those that have been stuck, and those that will be. Then there are also those that have been stuck more than once.

    Why am I left with the impression that this is experience speaking?

    Ive been stuck once, I didn't take photos during that 2 hour removal. Sometimes weight is a bad thing.

    No pictures, but my stucks with the 2030 were only annoying compared to yours Shovel got it out one time, chains and come-a-long the other. These were before I had the 6415.

    So far, I have not stuck the tractor. (Knock wood!) However, I have stuck a truck, and had to use the 1050 to get it out!

    WOW! I thought I got stuck the other day but mine was nothing compared to that. I was pulling an Oak log and got in bad enough I had to push out with my Artillian forks. (Dont tell Chris, I do all kinds of "not recommended" work with those forks.) All it may do is scratch the paint a lil. You cant hurt em. Love them forks

    I haven't gotten my tractor stuck yet, I'm sure its just a matter of time till I do. My pickups are another story . I tend them get stuck 2-3 times a year. I never think to take a pic .
