was out there at the lease all week working on plots.Only 2 were dry enough to half ass disc up.all the rest were pretty bad.What sucked was there was no way to tell how bad they was till i got half way in and was buried.Spent four hours getting it out one time.cannot believe how much rain we have gotten out there.Seems a little excessive.Tractor is buried in mud as i type this.got to go out Monday and get it out.tired of using a hand cumalong so im gonna just buy a 9000 lb winch and rig it so we can move it around as we need to.

went to harbor freight and got a 6000 lb badlands winch,extra 50 foot of cable a snatch block and a couple other things.spent 350 on all of it.took it out there and pulled the tractor out in 30 seconds.money well spent.Got the tractor stuck 4 more times in the same plot but got it out each time no problem and was able to get the plot finished plowed and disced.Rigged the wench so it can chain to a tree in case we have to get other stuff out.worked out real good.

Tractor stuck solution

Got a large tractor stuck down to frame years ago. Even had a frontend loader trying to pull it out. A farmer on the highway saw us and stopped. He said you boys are not doing it right. He said hook a chain to front end of tractor and pull it sideways not straight forward or backwards. So we hooked chain to front of tractor and put tension on it while slowing giving the tractor some gas and sure enough it crawled immediatly out. It does make perfect sense. When you put side pressure on the tires they grab on the side of the rut and climb out. Hope this helps someone.
