    Getting a Tractor Stuck

    A 4WD vehicle is only as good as it's recovery winch. But I never thought that simple advice applied to a 4WD Tractor. Last year I got a 4WD Tractor and since I'd only operated a number of 2WD Tractors,I felt that this one invincible...not so! :razz:

    My Father In Law says "anyone who owns a Tractor and claims they've never been stuck is a liar". True.
    I wish I'd taken pics!

    If you have a front bucket and back hoe you can lift the tractor with the bucket and hoe if you dug yourself a hole.

    I have only been stuck in driveways, never on a road, snowstorm or state of emergency snow storm be damned.

    And so many people want to floor a vehicle that gets stuck. It's all about traction and the small area between slip and grip which is unfortunately the same area near stalling the engine. You'd be surprised what a little shoveling snow can get you out of.

    Front end Loaders and a Backhoe helps, but Southern Red Clay is a Sumbitch.

    Was it wet and muddy? I'm not familiar with clay. I suppose it's always just clay huh?

    Yep, that stuff gets more slippery than owl shit. Never played in any owl shit, but that it the decades old saying in the South. I have played in red clay though, once it gets packed in your tire threads you have the equivalent of racing slicks on your truck/tractor.

    When the Children were young they though getting stuck was funny. When they got old enough to do the plowing and field work it stopped being funny.
    There is nothing worst than dessert clay when it gets real wet, nothing moves not even tracks.

    After a gut check of my southern drawl, I stand corrected, the old but true sayin is "slicker n owlshit".

    Owl's throw up "owl pellets" because they can't pass bones and hair of mice and other animals the owl eats through its digestive system, so it will throw up a gray hairball with bones inside called an owl pellet. Yes I had to go through owl pellets.
