Putting this under Maintenance because it's going to need some.

So I get how one could easily get into this situation working near a pond and not seeing how muddy the shore line is and then the back in slides inward. But what I dont get is why he did not set his anchors (backhoe and bucket) deep and shut the engine off once that happened. Then find something else to anchor the tractor and pull it out. You are not self-rescuing a tractor out of that kind of mud.

By their body reaction, kind of looks like they wanted to go in further. I see no sign of backhoe being dropped or brakes applied (rear wheel not locking up). Everyone wants to get a little fame at least once in a lifetime.

Actually the guy on the back lifted the backhoe that is why it started moving. And looking at the tires he is either not trying to go fwd or might even be in reverse.

I'm going with a 70 series machine, 50's have round fenders. I'd bet a gear shift trans, in neutral. Hopefully he keyed it off, before he jumped ship. Bad day for sure!

Yeah just horrible...what a waste.

People like these idiots are the reason for RIOs, neutral switches, and "Do Not Eat" labels on silica gel packets.

I saw this the other night just before I fell asleep. Why he lifted the bh is beyond me? You can see the back tire is locked up just before it disappears underwater. Dude should have had foot to the floor in forward before lifting the bh. Better yet a chain or tow strap hooked to a truck or another tractor to pull him out would have been the smart thing to do.
