Did this many times in the good old days.  My brother in law decided to try fastening the log under the tractor and across both tires, worked just great for about half a turn until the fenders got in the way.

 

BTW you don't have to be a Redneck to do stupid stuff nor is all stupid stuff done by Rednecks.  The old axiom "Nobody likes a Redneck until their car breaks down." comes to mind.

My 1st father-in-law done this may times, but once he used a railroad tie and it took the fender right off of the tractor......But he got out of the mud!

I think it is pretty ingenious, if your out somewhere and get stuck and there is no one to pull you out go get a couple of logs.

I am offended by that term redneck. If it works, they call it redneck, if it doesnt, they call it retarded, but that isnt PC and people get offended by that. What is wrong with "thinking outside of the box" or "barnyard engineering"?

Thats old school self recovery, they have manuals in the military that show things like this. If you seen pictures of the old WWI tanks the big beam they carried was for the same thing, strap it fast to both treads and go.

Many, old farmers were hurt or killed doing this one around here. Especially in the spring when they were trying to plow with trip plows. It works but is unsafe and if dire emergency causes the need for such measures, please go slow and be prepared for sudden attempts to flip or roll over.
Sorry for the paranoia, but this is one thing I remember even my Grandpa talking about not doing.
