com:I watched a local farmers hire help get his D6D dozier stuck while clearing some wetter ground. Sunk it to the top of the tracks due to an inexperienced operator. By the time they got someone who knew what he was doing they had an John Deere 8630, 4840, and 4630 all sunk to the axles. They finally got an old man who worked in construction for years on the dozier. Within 20 minutes he basically screwed that dozier out of that hole. Within an hour he had all the others pulled out as well. An experience operator is key in getting equipment. I was just happy to see they did not hook to the back section of the disk. Seen it happen too many times resulting in bent up disk frames.The man running the 8630 knew not keep digging it down and not hooking it up wrong. Older and wiser!
com:Talk about getting stuck, roughly 20 years ago when I was probably 5-6 my grampa, sister a year younger, and I were out in his 7700 Ford with the hay carrier and probably 8 bales we were driving to feed cattle got halfway to the pen and drove through the ditch. That’s the only way to get there and has been travelled though everyday for years and years well we ended up getting the trailer stuck when he locked the diff in and sunk the rear tires too. We walked back to the house and my sister and I thought it was the longest walk ever at the time remember our age lol. Ended up having my grandma drive us in the old ford truck while my grampa drove his open station 7600 out with the chains and pulled her right out. I’ll have to get pictures of it and share with you on Instagram but probably the best memory of my grandpa farming.
