Last year I was going to post this pic.
The problem is that the pic doesn't really back up the story very well. This was an oh-shit moment that was inches from ending bad for me.
I was brush-hogging this lot. I knew the creek was there but had no
idea these stumps were hidden under the tall grass. I got dummy hung on the
stumps. A combination of using the differential lock, four wheel drive
and some rocking back and forth only got me closer to the creek. The
front wheel is actually off the ground just hanging over the creek bank.
The back wheel is sliding down the bank but a stump was now holding me up
and preventing a roll over.
For the record, I don't like this piece of property. I was on this lot recently with a smaller tractor and got hung on a different stump and nearly ended up in the same situation. This time I actually had creek water on the tires. The boys at the shop would have never let me hear the end of it if I got stuck again in the same lot.
