You're not kidding!
Broke an axle on my bale truck a while ago, couldn't get it up the hill back to the yard because of all the ice and snow.
pulled it apart at -20C laid in a snowdrift
Wind blowing like there was no tommorow...Axle when it broke jammed and broke parts of the diff, so wound up changing the whole rear end.
A sod of a job in those conditions.
