Saturday, one of my neighbors rented a Kubota tractor much like this one.
After he scraped all the grass off his back yard, which is sloped about 15-20 degrees, the heavens opened up and it rained real hard.
I had planned on helping him with all the other landscaping he had planned but it turned out to be a recovery mission.
The mud, although not deep, was as slick as ice and I was unable to get down close enought to hook up with the Commander. With a chain and tow strap attached to the bucket, I started pulling by hand. I was able to keep just enough tension to keep him from sliding into the woods but progress was very slow as the treads on the tractor's wheel just filled with mud.
I found some old chainlink fence in a ditch on the side of the road and we used that to gain a little traction but not much. I was able to pull, by hand, him close enough to the grass where I could hook up to the Commander.
I put the Commander in first gear and left traction control on. I did not want to spin my wheels on the part of his lawn he was keeping. It only took about a minute after that to pull him out.
Over all I am happy with the way the Commander performed. I left the mud on the Jeep as a badge of honor. It's not a lot of mud, but still there is a good story to go with it.
