    Okay guys I was finishing up my plowing today and I started sliding and ended up with my tire in the ditch... I called all the local towing companies and AAA wont cover it because it has a plow? I dont know what the heck the liability is?

    Some pics of my good birthday:

    You should keep your mouth zip about not say plow. When they come they would say oh well that not look bad and they pull out.

    I been in that worst than that picture. It was slide in pond so I just tuck chains on rear tires so it got out easy.

    If you have any chains you could tuck rear tires then use 4L try slow backup without spin rear tire.

    My friend is going to bring his 320 over tomorrow morning. I cant do it now cause my dad is sleeping and he gets like 3 hours of sleep a night cause he has to be up at 11:30.

    Next time, I wont mention the plow if I call any towing companies.

    If you cant add weigth in the back just get some quick cement and throw it under the tires let it set for a few minutes and back out

    I guess that you are mobile and have no tools or anything else with you is this correct?

    I dont think the pictures do it justice but the front axle is basically resting on the ground..

    You said you were in the ditch already. Trust me I have been in worse situations. I have been in the ditch totally. Or the plow hopped over the snow banks and the entire front end got hung up. Is the front tire in or out of the ditch?

    By the way, its farther in since the pictures were taken. Not much farther but enough that the axle is now on the ground.
