Got the EK off of the trailer, and got the truck 'unstuck' :D :D

 

The trailer tongue was so low that the jack wasn't going to be able to deploy.  I have an A frame on the HDT1000 that has a sleeve hitch on one side and a tow tab on the other.  I put a 2" ball into the tab.  Backed the HDT up the the right side of the trailer up near the front.  Uncoupled the hitch, and raised the trailer up with the 3-pt until it was off the truck, and high enough to swing down the jack.  I did put some extra planks under the jack to keep it from sinking. Dropped it back down with the 3-pt and we were 1/2 way done :D :D.

 

I then got a tow strap hooked to the truck, and with the neighbor driving it, 'helped' it out with the HDT.

 

I was thinking of moving that trailer while I was at it, but decided that there are enough ruts in that area already.

 

I think I'll wait for the ground to freeze for awhile before I do that.

Glad you got un-stuck, those ruts look to be fairly deep.

 

Do you have photos posted of the HDT???? Bolens here. I'm not sure I have seen it, even though I read most all your posts

Thanks OB., I knew I had seen it, but just couldn't remember. That's the one you got with all the different languages on the decals for export.

 

Really a nice tractor!! :thumbs:
