..like ""jas1660''...my son got this ...our 886 in this unfortunate predicament...….we got it out...still running.....but requiring a few implants …..required the neighbours big old Allis Chalmers 3yd Loader...and some hair raising moments hooking up via the front weight assembly...that current was very swift...…..Our mountain rivers can rise incredibly quickly....caught the boy out badly...of course...had he heeded my suggestion...……………………….

..note his boots on the cab roof....the river had dropped by the time the pic was taken …..A very cool operator got a rope around him...and reeled him in ...they figured the old 886 was going to tip...…..

He have some wet feet when he was done. It looks like water had to be getting in the cab.

Here's our Annhydrous Ammonia applicator last year after the main beam let loose. Had it rebuilt this winter.

I got the zero turn stuck in the road ditch tonight but I didn't think it was worth a picture. Besides you guys have probably already seen it - both back wheels in the ditch and the front wheels on the road. 

Does that count?

The life of cattleman when it rains, rains, rains! Worst stuck I have done to date. Lost my boots in the slop and finished in my socks. Pulled her out with the 1486 shown with all the weights. Had the 14 on the cement and still had to unhook the bale processor to get her out. Then retrieved the bale processor with both. Had about 120 feet of chain to get to the 14. Really bad day! This was in 2018 when we had 74 inches of rain in a summer. Our normal is 25.

Not sure if I shared these before, but I was probably as scared as I have ever been when I got the bidirectional stuck trying to pull the pickup out. The bottom of the canyon is over 100 feet down. Week number 3 of the new job!8E0FF341-30F0-412D-AE97-BA974BC3A820.jpeg.6d666202e8cc9a475a06b312c25d0ca7.jpeg5211D162-15E3-4554-8D66-0B861662D4B4.jpeg.51e2bc5e6af792caa9269f7a780ccaac.jpeg

My Z turn is a Scag Cougar with a bin, so when it slides into the ditch it hangs on the tailwheel and the deck - drives off the ground. I always love the walk to get the loader and chain?

I’ve made that walk before ?

I used to work for a guy mowing who had a Woods 1852, great mower but literally get stuck in its own shadow. They look like a praying mantis

There seems to be similar situations when kids use our equipment, never thought it possible, but my son buried the td9 so bad he broke the winch cable and the 8 wouldn't help either. Had to lift it several times and place logs under it to finally get it out

Snatch Blocks Matter!

Double the pull! Learned that as a teen driving a wrecker. Slow and steady wins the race.
