    Wonderful video. Does remind me of some of the joys of farming.

    I've unstuck a few combines in my time but the purpose of these videos escapes me. You talk about watching as it gets pulled out but there is no video of the pull, just before and after pulls, never during. We can't watch if you don't show us. This was nothing but a tease.

    Aw, come on, Jerry, quit being a grouch.
    We all know getting the equipment lined up and in place and the right chains and cable in place are where the job gets done.
    Having enough power, pulling the right direction with enough strength in the chains to withstand the horsepower is the challenge.
    Once you have everything there, the pull out is simple.
    Emma couldn't be taking video of the actual pull — Emma was in that big middle tracttor cab at the wheel.
    Don't you just know her dad would have preferred to have Paris Hilton up there with her matchstick arms, six-inch stiletto heels, Designer gown and undies and her package of cocaine.
    Give me a girl who finds the John Deere Festival exciting and fun, and knows how to apply a big Deere for pulling out a stuck combine.
    Emma reported the facts and showed us the layout for "unsticking" the combine, and then climbed up in the tractor to be the central key to the job. And a nit picker complains.
    Reminds me of a fellow up on Colorado's upper Yampa River who stumbled over a chunk of high-grade ore and complained about his sore toe.

    Jim:

    Very dangerous mixing straps and chains. Many people killed doing the same thing. Need to have a cable or weights tied to the strap or chain to prevent, broken rubber band effect.

    Jim,
    Very true about mixing tow ropes and chains…but with this tow strap the strap drops as soon as something breaks…we have been using it for 10 years now and it always falls down if a chain breaks…the elasticity of the strap isn't as much as a tow rope so that is why it falls…would definitely suggest using one for everyone out there…and it is really easy to carry in the mud hole!
