Default Stuck!!!!!!!!

This was the end of the night (17 hours) plowing. The pics dont really do it justice. I slid off near the very top and ended up sideways on the hill. Had to come backwards because there was no way to get another truck to the top. Had the truck on 3 wheels as the front passanger dropped off the wall and the driver front was still on top.

After two 6 inch straps and a pintle hook that sheared,we got it out. We got very lucky that as the pintle broke the strap was running through the snow bank and it brought the strap to the ground.

Truck is a Chevy 5500 4x4 and I had 4 tons of salt on it.

Of all nights to forget my camera.......crappy phone pics.

Ive plowed that driveway 100 times plus (working on ten years now) and never been off it.

Its my biggest f-up plowing it 10 years. No cars hit, no trucks brought back broken.

I had to tug the plow truck in our neighborhood yesterday morning....he pushed up too hard and got the front tires off the ground :tonka:

His timing was perfect....he got stuck in the neighbor's drive just as I was leaving for work

Thats all the pics I got. I forgot my camera when I left. First tug we hooked a 2500HD onto it. Didnt budge, sheared the hitch. So I wrapped the strap around the frame rails in the back and hooked a 7500 Chevy to it and took about 10 "HARD" hits on the strap and we finally got it out. Took us just over an hour to get it out.

At about the 45 min mark and two straps later I was trying to dig your number up Rizzo. I thought we were gonna need a big wrecker, but we ended up getting it.
