Wow, what a project to get the grader free! It took over an hour, and the problem was the grader’s weight. They decided to try to pull the grader out from the roadway side, and filled in the trench all ’round so that if it moved, it would go only more level ground. At first they tried to use the crawler’s bucket to pull at the rear end of the grader, but the leverage problems quickly made it apparent that power was lacking. Once they added a second grader with more cables, the back end came out of the hole and she was up and drivable. The tracks on the crawler didn’t do the pavement any good, but damage was minimal.
The video below is about 6 minutes long, if you have that much time to waste. Enjoy!
Nice movie , one dumbass drives it into the ditch and 8 get pid to haul it out :-))
That’s America, my friend. The land of opportunity. And where there isn’t any, make some. Actually, I was amazed by the whole thing. He should have been very safe where he was when it let go, but 77,000 pounds and desert soil got him. “You were over there?” And the tracks showed it. Good lesson for me when I go 4-wheeling!
