Tried to float my crawler over a spring yesterday. They don't swim so well. It's out now but my neighbors won't ever let me live it down.
They were pretty tough on me... see the photo.

Yup, it's stuck alright (snicker):)
The better traction you have, the faster they get that way and the tougher they stick! But look who i'm tellin! LOL - Thanks for sharing that one, she's a doozy!

Coulda been worse....I know of one instance where a guy put a smaller crawler in a similar position into a SEPTIC TANK!

I'm pretty new to this board, and don't know how to view some of these pictures you guys talk about. I did see the one of the person on the cow with no problem, but didn't see one of the crawler. Somebody enlighten me, please!

Well, after I got old Mr. Case running again...
I rolled the bucket forward and put a little downforce on it. That broke the suction against the tracks. After the machine had run some and the tranny got warm enough it walked out on it's own. My friend said it was through with it's bath and would have come out on it's own if I'd left it be. man...

Hi Donna, I always feel so happy when I can answer a question. If it had been about farming well I am still learning. For the pictures. Go to the left side of your screen and you will see "Photo Gallery" listed just click that and on the next screen short descriptions of the pictures is there, just click view by the picture you want to see and there it is.

Have a rainbow day!!

Yep, told me not to run it anymore without wearing a lifevest. Threatened to call the game warden and tell him I've been fishing with a bucket.

I'd just rebuilt the fuel system. New lines, line dampers, sediment bowl, etc. No diesel fuel made it into the pond but I was worried that it might.

Had to run a temporary tank from the cage down to the filters to get fuel into it. The crawler's tank was 1/3 under water. I used a one gallon paint can with a hose fastened to it for the temp. tank. Then my neighbor said if it had been
Rustoleum the the machine would have jumped out own it's own for fear of lossing it's rust.

We liked that picture of your daughter in the parade.
