OptiPhil 10176 158 Pivot Stuck In Waterway either
Pivot Stuck In Waterway
We have the driest conditions in many years and the pivot
got stuck in a grass waterway !!!

Toke was running the irrigation systems, we think it was his
fault for getting it stuck!

Thanks to Mitch & Pudding for getting it out of the
mud-hole.

Taken in near Madisonville, KY. USA.

This corn field is around 300 acres. The field to the left
is 220 acres.

Hey Phil

How did that get stuck? Did something break on it? Or was it
just some quicksand?

Re: Pivot Stuck In Waterway
The waterway where the pivot got stuck is always lower and
water will stand there as a result. The pivot has been
through this spot 10-12 times in the same wheeltracks,
gradually sinking deeper each pass, eventually dragging the
frame and getting stuck. We dropped a backhoe bucket full of
gravel in the trench after Pudding pulled it out, to try and
get it through OK next time around. Stay tuned !

Re: Pivot Stuck In Waterway
I have been all over Kentucky and that general area. I do
not remember it ever being that flat and open!! I guess I
will have to get off the paved road next time!! Are the
fields that big every where in that area? Or are these just
big farmers? Thanks!!!
