just woundering if anyone ever rides there gts through the mud for the fun of it. I like to because it shows you how much traction the tires acculy have. I also like to see which tractor makes it the farthist before gettin stuck.

I honestly can't say that I ever have, at least not intentionally. I got the Massey 1655 with the front end loader stuck on the hill the other weekend. The left front sunk down almost to the axle and the rear of the tractor didn't have enough weight to get traction so I had to pull it out up over the hill. Would probably be fun doing a mud bog but it wouldn't be with any of the good tractors I have. Mainly because I wouldn't want to have to clean it afterwards.

Heck, yeah. Slinging mud is fun no matter what you are driving. I don't have a good spot for it at this house but when we make our garden I might get a little muddin in.

I have never done it intentionally, but there have been a few accidents. I was on a garden tractor, so it was fun.

Yes, every chance I get. A gt was my first 4 wheeler lol. The spoiled neighbor kids had 4 wheelers I had tractors. Yes I got teased, no they were not fast, but guess who was the hero when the wheelers broke or got stuck. Yep good ole ag tired Garden Tractors , drug them there little wheelers through the mud. Good time for sure, now my kids and I take trail rides on gt's ,sometimes in the mud, lol. Shawn

I used to have tractors thats all we did was mud in them. We mad ramps and had demo derbys. Yea i mean i wouldent do it with my classic garden tractors but MTDs and murrays why not. Its fun to just get out there and cut loose and some of them murrays are bad in the mud

Here's one of my posts that I copied. Kinda thought it fit here. Not exactly a gt, and we didn't do it on purpose, but it was fun.


Posted Image My Father won a tractor....so we got it stuck

My Father won a 1949 John Deere M in a raffle at the 2009 Two-Cylinder Expo in Canandaigua NY. The tractor had been restored and came with cultivators installed on it. The next day we brought it home and decided to take it for a ride on the power line trails down the road from my fathers house. We took turns driving and standing on the cultivators on the back. The tractor ran great as we explored the trails. On the way back (my father was driving) we were trying to stay on top of some deep ruts in a wet area when the front tires slid off. We would have been fine if the tractor didn't still have the cultivators mounted to it's belly. The cultivators dug deep into the ridge we were trying to stay on and it was obvious we were going to need another tractor to get it loose. Fortunately, my father had four more at home. I used my cell to call my mother and tell her we needed her to pick us up at the trail head, she wasn't a bit surprised. When we came walking out of the trail we saw that my sister and brother in law were waiting for us, they had come to my parents to see the new tractor so my mother sent them to get us. After a mandatory amount of ball busting from my brother in law we got my fathers 50' Oliver 77 and pulled the poor muddy M loose. It was a good day.
