    Well I was working in the backyard and went in the same spot I was going on all day today to go to my neighbors yard. and all the sudden water appeared and I buried it haha. backhoe wouldnt pull it out and the loader wouldnt push it out. So I raised it with the loader and stabilizers and stuck metal under them. I bent the steel but I got out haha.

    No offense,but you were'nt stuck,just detained a little.LOL Too much white paint showing on your rear wheels and the depressions from your tires and stabilizers are fairly shallow tells me this.Next time you're detained/stuck ,and the hoe alone can't pull you out,try putting the tractor in gear and then pull yourself out.I know it's a little difficult with the seat configuration on your rig,but if you first put it in gear,just let the tires spin in the mud at IDLE,then get yourself up in hoe mode and pull yourself out.In 35 years in the excavating biz,I have buried myself in soft soupy mud many times,as long as you're not COMPLETELY bottoming out your axles/underbelly,usually as long as you can get a solid grip with your bucket,the hoe will come out.

    hahaha i have to say you werent all that stuck. about ten years ago we had an international 260 series A, 2wd backhoe and long storie short, before we finnally got it out you couldn't see the floor boards on it.:eek: man i wish i had pics of that. we had to let it sit all summer so the ground could dry out. it to a case 970 and international 1466 both with dualls and the hoe working to pull it out. but anyways, yea you got a nice new mud hole and some washing to do =)

    I have never got my Allis Chalmers 5050 stuck so bad that I couldn't push it out with the bucket loader. One time I got it stuck on my lawn so bad I had to cut down a tree so I could get on dry land.

    i usually get out by rolling the front bucket, and pulling with the hoe at the same time. the front lifts the tractor, and pushes you back, while the hoe unloads the rear tires, and pulls ya backwards
