Too wet 2
And still stuck in the clay. Only a 30 tons excavator gave
the solution.

You have to tie a wooden beam onto the wheel flange with a
chain. The tractor pulls itself onto the beam, repeat it a
few time and you're free without that expensive excavator
needed.

Be very careful with this method. I have heard of guys
getting killed with the wooden blocks when they snap off. An
excavator or winch sounds much safer

Re: Too wet 2
We know the principle, but apart from the danger, it was
impossible in this situation. There was no room between the
wheels or between the rear wheels and the machine, also
because it was stuck so deep. And most important: this is a
clay soil, not sand!! It is very sticky but it flows away
like syrup, so you wont find any grip. Besides: pulling is
much more easier and with the other method, if it would
succeed, you still need the excavator to dig out the beams.
:-) BTW:for situations with a small tractor the beam can be
a sollution; TIP: do not go in the field under this soil
conditions, but if you go; dont forget your camera!!

No, you wont need to dig up the beams, when the tractor has
tumbled over it, let the wheels turn till they raise the
beam, it was tied up with a chain, remember!!

My brother did it once he was stuck in the clay, about 100
km from home. just some scratches on the rim. But still, a
better solution than letting someone come over at this
distance when it's peak season!!

Hey "Dangerous",

Those guys who got killed must have been menatlly ill, in a
very poor physical condition.
