A while back I was chopping some fresh cut hay with our 1st Fox chopper with a pickup head hooked to our Massey 285 into the greenfeed wagon. I was looking behind me as I was getting near the end of the field (and a creek) and starting my turn so before I knew it, the front of the tractor was pointed downhill. Since I was turning it was at about a 45* from being perpendicular with the creek.
Dad pulled the wagon back and then the chopper back with another tractor, but then got our neighbor to come over with 2 of their big tractors to pull the 285 out. One chained to the axle to keep it from going over (was told the tire did leave the ground for a second or 2) and the other to do the pulling.
A couple years ago my brother was pulling an empty hay wagon to go pickup a greenhouse frame with his truck. The reciever was rusted in and he never put the pin back in after the last time he tried to pull it out. He was about a mile from our farm when the hitch pulled out, sending our wagon hurtling towards a woman who was joggin on the shoulder. Luckily she saw it comeing at her and got the heck outta the way- the wagon went through the ditch and into a niehgbors hay field, still intact. My dad was behind him and saw it all happen. They went out to the field, put the reciever back in with a pin and were able to keep on going.
