    Default 4-wheeler\'s trick applied to tractors

    Here's a goofy little "Jeep" trick I applied to "tractoring" the other day -- Not sure if it has been posted here in the past, but thought I'd go ahead and post it anywho.

    I was using the box blade (low gears - VERY slow) and had just stopped making forward progress (rear dif locked, all 4 wheels still slowly turning though).

    Anyway, an old Jeeping trick for a "stuck" situation is to turn your steering wheel back and forth a couple of times while the wheels turn. I tried it and sure enough, works for tractors too.

    Of course, this trick is useless unless you have a 4wd tractor. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    I've used that trick a time or 2 myself, both with my pick-up and my tractor. Great when you just need that little extra bit of traction.
