    Took me a few tries to get the hang of it.;)

    I've run into that a few times over the years - a bottomless muck hole. Glad you found the 82 year old to pull you out.:eek:

    Thanks Nedly! The 90 has been a great machine. Tallied up 600+ trouble free hours in the last 13 months. I did blow out the door glass cutting under some oak trees, but that was entirely my fault.

    That was a good stuck machine photo. I stuck my Case 440 last week, a customer asked me to move a 2000 lb slab of concrete, which wanted to tip my 440 it was about 6 long by 5 wide and on the thick side 18"s thick. I used my hydro grapple and went to where she told me to go. I was moving through thick grass about 5' tall and could not see much. Drove right off into a creek 3' down. It was all i could do to get loose of the concrete. My F550 in 4 x 4 and me in the machine would not move it. Took the truck, the machine and the 12k warn winch to pull it out. Luckily there was a tree within a 100' of the front of the truck. She said "Oh sorry, i forgot there was a drainage ditch there". Took me 1 hour to get out. I was doing a quick FREE favor that turned out to not be so quick.
