Super C Saved The Day!!

Postby Faster346 » Mon May 02, 2011 10:00 pm

Well long story long, today I was out back spreading horse manure. I usually spread it in the neighbors field out back. Well, for the last few weeks, we've had non stop rain here in Michigan. The ground has never really got too soft out in the field, like it does up by the barn after a lot of rain. I have a certain path that I usually spread on, but today for whatever reason, I decided to run along the edge of the field that butts up to our land. All was going good, until the old M dropped like a rock about a foot into the ground. It was one of those moments you just knew you weren't going to walk out of easy. I tried backing back out onto the harder ground, but with the fully loaded manure spreader, it just spun tires and didn't move. My only option was foward. I tried to just drive through it, and made it about 15-20 feet, and it just dug itself down further. By this point, I was almost late for work, and the only tractor I had near me was my Super C, so I walked over, hopped onto it, and drove out into the field. I had little faith in the tiny little SC even budging the big ol M and spreader, but I hooked a chain to it anyways, got onto some solid ground, and gave her a yank while my Uncle drove the M, and it yanked it right out like it was nothing! Sure wish I had my camera on me at the time, but I had to just grab some "after" pictures instead. So I grabbed some shots of the ground, the little SC that could, and the big ol M and spreader. Notice how the ground up by the barn is...and they're calling for more rain all week...awesome!!

Nice solid ground..that all of the sudden turned to quick mud.

Front tires just dug and dug and dug.

Water almost instantly came up from the ground.

Tried backing out of it, front tires just knifed themselves deeper, probably the weight of the loader off the front.

Good looking tractors. Hope my SC looks that good when it is all done. It's all back together and I am just trying to get it started. Keep your fingers crossed :D :D

Do you know what brand the loader is on the "M"? I have one just like it.
Best,
Mike
