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.

If you need a hand tomorrow Doug, give me a call. I'd be

happy to head your way to help.

I see a lot of rocks washed by the rains.  You can gather them & toss in the grooves.

Doug, towing it out with an electric winch shouldn't violate any "electric ethic laws" !   :smilewink:

:bigrofl: :bigrofl: :bigrofl:

The forecast is no rain until late tomorrow night.

So one way or the other it's got to come out after work tomorrow.

LOL! In the first pictures it will looked pretty wet! At least it moves some, and not just stuck dead.

I'd bring my trailer and new 5000# winch, but you'll have it out by then! Good luck!

Good Luck with that!! My garden is probably the same way since it has rained a little every day since last Monday night when I planted the potatoes. Chance of rain every day this week so it may be a while befre I get back in there.

Have you got a hay mow rope? The puller has to get far enough away from the pullee to get traction.

1 day later

 

After work when I got home I checked out the soil and it had dried up some.

I pushed some dirt in the ruts with my feet,

turned on the battery disconnects, got my camera set up and tried to get out again.

 

Tractor has sat where you see it since yesterday,

I sat on the seat, put the trany in 2nd gear,

tuned on the main switch, stepped on the pedal all the way done,

full power right away and the rest of the story is in the Video.

I have a question! When it dries out enough and you plow it, will the ruts disappear into the furrows?

You had the camera too far away,  I didn't even hear the engine start up.  :rolling:

My thoughts exactly! Glad it could dig itself out!
