    Gotta wonder how smart of an idea that is. Water has a way of getting into everything.

    This is the same people:

    It was during the australian floods - trying to minimise the financial damage by harvesting any crops that were ready before they too went under water.

    To be fair, there is a big difference bewteen comercial tractors and cuts, and most tractors are fine upto the floor plan. I do however think I'd draw the line at looking into the water through the windscreen

    This is an example of somebody exceeding the limitations of their tractor - you need to watch the video quite away before you even realise there's a tractor there...!

    Blow main ballast. All rise on the fairwater planes. Who was the U Boat commander that put it there to begin with? Or was it just caught in a flood?

    Don't know but looks like a flood. Good luck when the clutch plate sticks.

    Looks like that link was after lake levels dropped a bit.

    Add a snorkel , some head bangin' music and silicone and she goes deeper.
