    Stuck!

    Hi folks. Got my tractor stuck out back. This is a first.

    It seems it’s hung up on some ice under the rear. I've tried putting all sorts of things under the wheels, but no go. I can call my neighbor to come with his pickup and a chain, but I was concerned about pulling from the boxblade. Any thoughts if that will damage anything? I realize the boxblade and 3pt hitch are pulling all the time when driving forward, but a chain yanking on the rear may produce difference stresses? Thoughts?

    I could leave it till next May, but I may need it before then.

    Thanks!

    Yes...A chain "yanking" will create lots of stress, SO DON'T DO THAT! Pull slow and steady, and in a straight line. Ideally, try to get the chain UNDER the box blade and attach it to the drawbar plate with shackle.

    Thanks, Kennyd. I'll go out and see if I can get a chain attached to the drawbar plate with shackle and pull tight without hitting the bottom of the BB causing the hitch to go too high.. If not, I may have to somehow get the BB off.

    If it's just ice under the rear, have you tried pushing it out with the loader?

    I agree. Should work out fine.
    The chain hooked to the draw bar once tight will want to lift the rear of the tractor which may help but I'd keep an eye on the top link and where it attaches to the tractor.

    Any chance of hooking to the front of the tractor?

    I have. Tried to curl it out. Even picked the front end up off the ground and put wood planks under the wheels. The rear is really hung up on solid ice. Both rear wheels just spin freely.

    No, unfortunately not. There's two feet of snow in the field out in front of it.

    I have hot and cold water at my hose. Thought of blasting hot water at the ice under the tractor and then getting a ton of sand. But the temps are wicked cold here... -22 this am. I'd be afraid of creating a pool of water around the tractor as it couldn't drain. Then if I couldn't get it out, the wheels would freeze 6' into the ground. Then I'd really not get it out till spring.

    Here are a couple of videos using either the bucket or attaching logs to the rear wheels to get unstuck that you might find helpful in getting yourself out of your situation.

    Thanks, Dave. I've tried using the bucket and no luck. Unfortunately the curl function doesn't seem to have enough power to really move the tractor. On the rear wheel idea, I'm not sure how I'd attach the logs.
