Cousin called at 6pm and asked if I would be on recovery standby...
He got his Landini hung up on a Blueberry crown stump while chopping prunings, and had his wife coming out with the truck.
630PM the phone rang again. "Nope, the truck nearly got stuck backing up to the tractor".
So off we go on a quick 3 mile road trip, to his field.
Got there, and his ground is still like a half dried sponge. Fluffy and half dried Peat and sand.
As soon as he hit the crown with the underside of his 8506, the tires just dug until he got on the clutch.
To make matters worse, he had 1500lbs of Brush Bull, hung on the row crown.
Deere does an awesome job on their traction control. The 5425N didn't even strain.
Who has stuck and recovery pics already for this season?
Post 'em up!! No shame!
Of course we are all gonna laugh, because we know we are probably next.
