Terr O, was spreading fertilize in the IH spreader truck yesterday at our place. The ground appeared fine at the low spot, but he sunk when he hit it. Was a long day for him getting it out. Our largest tractor, an MF2745 didn't even shake it, so had to call the big boys in...2 of them before they got it out. Member Meangreen filmed the last part with both wreckers, as I had to leave to roll 73 rolls of hay. Kinda long, but was interesting to watch.

I took our payloader down to the creek where a big pile of large rocks were washed against the bank. Took over a sq yard of rock to fill the hole 1/2 way. Then covered with dirt, then filled in the holes the skidder dug. I am afraid days like this happen far too often on this farm. Luckily this was really our Coop's problem, but I helped what I could.

That sinkhole is close enough to the edge that I think I see some field tile in your future:D

Is there enough grade there to do it tho?

That was definitely stuck! Been in those "uh-oh, this isn't as dry as I thought it was" spots a time or two. Thanks for sharing the video.

Way more grade than required for tiling. Most of out other fields have been tiled, but not this one. But most of our old tiles are caving in on us, so one day we may have to re-tile all the fields.
