    Stuck the 2030 today, I even have pictures!

    I was doing a little brush hogging for the neighbor, about 1/2 mile from home.

    I knew there was a 4 bottom plow, a disk, rock pile and several stumps. I had mowed it once before.

    I thought I knew where all the stumps were (at the south end). Luckily I knew where the disk was.

    I was mowing very slow. 2nd LO of the HI -LO trans, about 1mph. I had 2/3 of it mowed when it happened. It was like someone pushed in the clutch, a very smooth stop of forward movement. First I thought it had popped out of gear. Then I saw the right rear tire still spinning. I tried the dif lock, still stuck. Tried reverse, still stuck.

    So I shut it down. Got off to see what could be stopping me. I was high centered on a big stump! I unhitched the brush hog to get a better look. I also noticed the right rear tire was over a hole (ground hog?).

    I walked home for the yellow Ford F250. Plan A was simply pull it off with the truck. I even remembered my camera. The truck easily pulled the brush hog away. Then pulled the disk out of the weeds to a mowed area. Now to pull out the tractor. It did not want to budge. OK, pull harder. I think I moved it maybe 3-4" and the chain broke. I knew I was using too light of a chain, but all the heavy chains were at the farm
    6 miles away.

    Plan B go home get a floor jack, some wood and jack it up and put wood under the right rear tire. If that did not work Plan C was drive to the farm and get the JD 6415.

    Plan B worked. Hardest part was lifting the floor jack into the truck twice.

    Enjoy the pictures. Nothing hurt, not even my pride, except a broken chain. The chain will be about 1' shorter after I reattach the hook.

    I should add from "stuck to unstuck" took exactly 1 hour. Which includes walking 1/2 mile home for the truck and 1/2 mile back after taking the truck back home. I still have unload the floor jack and fix the chain. Jobs for tomorrow.

    Hey, nice floor jack!!

    Sorry couldn't resist,

    I got my 274 stuck once where I needed another tractor to pull me out, all the posi-traction lock did
    was cause me to dig two deep holes instead of one.

    Good pics!

    Sometimes, the little stucks are the most annoying.
    Yeah, they are easy to get out of, but it's aggravating that ya stuck so easy in the first place.

    At least ya didn't have to call Kin or neighbor, to come stretch a strap.

    It's fertilizer time here. My annual stuck is coming, and I have a good idea where it will be already.

    My thoughts exactly .

    Was the "ground hog hole" that big before you got hung up ? Thankfully you didn't wake up a bear !

    No injury, no damage, it's all good

    If you didn't get hurt or tear something up, it's just a good story. Aggravating at the time but no worries later. That's one time it would have been nice to have the loader on the tractor. Lift up and push backwards and you would have been good to go.

    4WD would have probably come in handy.
