    It's that time of year. Stuck season is upon us.

    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.

    No problem.

    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.

    Good job on the save. Getting stuck will be later in the year for me, right after I do something I shouldn't. But you know, we all have to try.

    Except, you've already been stuck this year!! I recall your daughter was smart enough to not take the truck to the barn in the mud. You, however, proceeded to drive the truck to the muddy barn area, and get it stuck!!

    That was my daughters fault not mine. Besides, I was showing her what NOT to do.

    Yea, how else do they learn unless we show them what not to do!!

    I've not been stuck with the Green Machine but my Carol has taken over lawn mowing with our X320 and has managed to get 'high centered' several times already (no pictures). Thankfully it's been a hand pull out and not required the Green Machine.

    No photos but I just came back from pulling my neighbors 55 HP 2WD Mahindra from being buried using my '08 GMC 4X4 and LONG chain.
