Today’s edition of “Clint Does Something Stupid.”

Postby clintmo » Sun Jul 05, 2020 10:11 pm

Years of leaving tractors unattended in N finally bit me in the ass.

This is a real drag, but I lucked out big time. Firstly, and most important, no one got hurt. And the real miracle is the tractor seems to be unharmed. The rear tire hit the tree and stopped it. I don’t think anything else took a hit. If I can just extract it from this position without damaging it, it truly will be a miracle.

Glad no one got hurt. Also glad that you had proper tree spacing. Better off stopping there than down the hill and across the road - which would have been more my luck.

From the title of this thread I got the impression you do do something stupid every day. I think those of us who know you know better than that. I'm glad it was no worse than that and no injuries were involved.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Glad your ok. It could happen to anyone of us. I reached in to the key and started it in gear, the tire chain caught me as a fell I rolled out of the way. The plow ran into a pile of snow and I shut it off. Not good to be in a hurry.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

It's hard to tell by the pic, but if it made it through the trees, it's a nose dive off a cliff and down to the road. I just can't believe the rear tire is what hit the tree and not the front end.

If it's just one stupid thing in a day, I'm doing good. This one was a dandy, though.

Clint, with these pics, you can work up a real doosey of a tale to share around the Bash campfire. I'm just glad the damage was mostly to your pride.

Hey Clint, My Grandpa always said" before you get off the tractor always cut the wheel uphill". it keeps it from going anywhere. At least thing did not turn out too bad for you.

Also, use the parking brake! If yours doesn't work, do whatever you have to do to make it work. I'm glad it snagged the way it did. Lucky, for sure!

UPDATE: Tractor has been safely retrieved. We have an excavating company coming to deal with water issues on our property related to the coal mine. They brought in a Bobcat today and offered to pull out the Cub before I could even mention it. Had it up and out safely in a matter of moments.

Clint, you're leading a charmed life. No one injured, minimal (if any) damage to the Cub and mower.

Glad no one was hurt. Do you mind telling how it happened? I'm guessing it was started in gear while off the seat, I don't see any grass worth mowing in the area.

I interpreted his first post to mean he left it in neutral and it went for a stroll on it's own.

He said I was unattended so I’m guessing running or not running out of gear and it started to roll.
