Sorry about your luck!   I thought I was the only one who did things like that.    I'd be glad to help but you should be out by the time I got there.   Rick

You're bottomed out Doug, and likely gonna have to be towed out.  

ET2 can't be towed, has a reputation to uphold.

 

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

 

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

Guess the dogs going outside tonight.

:rolling: I've seen your dog.

 

I don't think he'll be much help loading.

Let him sleep inside, where it's warm. :wave:

That sounds so odd and awesome.... a tractor with little to no noise. Makes me feel deaf.

But,what if you're the only picture in the thread?

That'd be like when George Castanza hung that big Matsa Ball

out there, by telling the deaf girl, he loved her....

How do ya deal with that?

Doug, sure am sorry to see you stuck like that.   Trying to think if there is anything you can do.  One thing that needs to happen is you've got to get the tractor up off its center.  Have you got any expanded steel loading ramps?  You could try getting the tractor up on those then once you're up maybe lay out a few planks.

Forecast is no rain tonight and tomorrow, maybe if it drys out some more I can drive it out, if not I got to tow out with a larger tractor.

It's all part of the hobby.
