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.
