    Default Buried the Kubota today. RIP

    Got stuck pretty good today mowing a property I have mowed several times.

    It was always soft in this area, but was unusually soft today, and had the loader on adding weight so I don't think that helped matters.

    Luckily I was only 15 min from home and had dad drive the truck while I was on the tractor. It was a struggle, but managed to get out of the bottomless muck.

    Have a laugh and enjoy my misery this morning

    Ok. Hahahaha! I needed a good chuckle.
    Glad you got out ok though. Why do you mow with a loader?

    Wow, now that's impressive. I buried the front end of my L3800 pretty good one time but the loader and locking the diff got me out in about in 10-15 minutes. You got this so stuck that I can't imagine how you broke the suction. Must have been a heck of recovery. I tip my hat to you.

    We need an applause emoticon for this one.

    I normally dont mow with the loader.

    But have maintained this property for the last 3 years and was tired of mowing around the downed trees and logs. So grapple came with me to move those to make it easier next time.

    The impressive part was that my dodge was able to get it out.

    Was trying forward first and no dice. Cutter (raised as high as it would go) was digging into the ground.

    Reverse and lifting the front half of the tractor out of the muck with the loader and we finally got it free

    Been surprised myself with just how much force a 7800+lb Cummins powered RAM 4x4 can apply (If) it has good traction
