I thought I'd try to plow my garden, what with the warmer weather and everybody else plowing there gardens. I got about 20ft and then I had problems, the batteries are fully charged, loaded rear turf tires with chains plus wheel weights,tractor in tip top shape, I just don't understand how this could happen.???

I took off the plow to try to get out but no luck. Pictures of where it now rests.

I knew it was a little wet, maybe I should of waited for it to dry out more.

I am sorry, hope you get it out soon. I will have to remember this can happen to even the little ones, not just the big ones...

Ya' think?

 

I hope you get it out before that mud dries hard.

 

Around here, if you till before it's dry, you will have clods that will take years to break down.

You CAN'T leave that out there overnight like that.......

 

What if I'm driving by with a trailer, with a winch on it?
