Boy between the mud and the old bridges, these large tractors can really have problems.

The first set of pictures reminded me of the advice my first drill Sgt gave me:  When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

And things happen we can't control but there looks to be a few of those that someone was not paying attention.

Well you hear stories like depicted in the pictures every year.  There was a combine fire on my place the year before i moved in here. That elevator bin blow out is near where all my cousins live.

I remember when Marvin Leonard bought a great big brand new Allis Chalmers 4WD to farm his bottom. He ran it into te mud to the point it took 4 Tractors  as big as his to pull it out.

I can remember back in the late 60's early 70's when farmers here were putting rice tires on the combines to get harvest out and still burying them. Then hooking up with 4-wheel tractors to pull them out would pull combines in half. Eveything is alot bigger and heavier know compared to then those cross-over bridges can't take the load. :(

Lots of huge headaches in those pictures. But alot could have been avoided.

As said, those old bridges can't handle those heavy rigs. I wonder what the insurance companies

have to say about cases like that.

Well when you have been driving the Super m and 4020 over that bridge for 40 yrs, why would you doubt it would carry the load?
