    Looks like you really stuffed it in there. You couldn't pull it out?

    You'd think you would stop after the 1st 30ft:)

    When I can't get traction I put it in further too...try to get a run at the way out. If you need a tow it might as well be worthwhile.:D

    Was trying to make it wider to make room for all the snow. Totally forgot it sloped off the edge. Was just getting tired after 18 hrs in the seat. Wasn't paying attention.

    I remember helping my wife's friend out,

    No one told me she never cleaned it out even once,
    Should of said no way when I got there to find a snow bank level too my hood,

    Nope Chevy pushed right thru it like butter got in there and the snow just enveloped in on me!!
    Had to crawl out the window to get out!!

    So I left her a Chevy sized opening in her driveway and left!!

    Chute comes off.

    Can always hook to axle if you need to. Just don't yank on it

    I know. But the way I was in there was no way or room to have some one yank me out. Shovel was the tool for this job

    I would hook to the frame the chute cant be that wide be no way I would shovel my self out.
    I been pulled out many times. My Chute blocks the hitch but I hook on the frame

    Worst one only thing could pull me out was a road grader + 3 other trucks that was stuck trying to get to me. That was last time I leave town in a truck after a blizzard to do drives. Now I use a tractor only.
