    Default Plow Snow? In Michigan, we plow mud!

    While backfilling a trench for a new sewer line it got a little muddy and my son got one of our tractors stuck. I thought it might tip over so I had him climb off and we shortened up the top link to get the blade out of the mud. Our other tractor was 3 miles away so we used a chain and a van to straighten it out and then we used the dif lock to drive it out of the mud.

    Bummer, but you did the right thing. Better to be safe than sorry.

    I can't imagine taking my tractor out right now. Our ground is more saturated than the normal spring with all this rain we've been getting.

    Wierd optical illusion, but it looks like the back tires are on backwards.
