    Posting for your amusement.

    I had these fence panels next to the field to use them for dragging but taking turn with the tractor, tiller was able to grab them.

    Oh, well, nobody gut hurt. It took me half an hour to untangle the tiller.

    I thought such incidents only happen to ME.

    You can do that with a snowblower too, trying to get too close to the fence.

    Go ahead, ask me how I know...

    ^ As above. Took about half an hour to remove a tightly would up 1/2" rod.

    That is not a bad day. You didn't get hurt. That's the main thing. Stuff like this happens to me too. Everybody else on here too. I've wrapped barbed wire around the brush hog and finish mower more times than I want to remember. The bad thing is I know where the stuff could be but I still find it.

    Flail mowers have a thing for old barbed wire hidden at the edges of a large field, or so I've been told. ;-)

    It took more than an hour for me - err - I mean whoever had this experience, to get it untangled from the drum.

    You know....
    ....if you connected them right, they might work as a good rock screen when you're tilling.

    Was brush hogging for the neighbor. Grass height was up over the tractor. Got into a corner and found some high tensile wire that was just dragged over and thrown there.

    Managed to wrap up the wire and drag the electric fence posts into the mix 20 minutes worth of cussing and cutting with some wire cutters, and I was back in business.

    What always kills me, is that if you TRIED winding up something like that, you couldn't if your life depended on it. Like, put a rope near a tree and it gets hopelessly tangled in the branches. Throw a rope into a tree to save yourself from falling and you know what happens.

    I was "playing" with my new logging winch this weekend. Managed to get the cable birdnested. I only ruined 5' of cable, ..... almost exactly in the middle of the 165' length. I won't post pictures, then maybe it didn't really happen.
