In a Bind

I had taken my annual spring-cleaning trip to the fishin' hole to remove undergrowth and trim some limbs from overhead that were notorius for snagging an uninhibitted cast, and as I putted around the pond on my 1948 ALLIS Chambers, the ground under the front end suddenly gave way, and the tricycle front end dropped into the hole up to the oilpan. I could go forward about 2feet, and then back, but couldn't pull out. I started back on foot to the shop to get a winch, when suddenly an idea struck me. I had a chain saw with me for trimming, and a chain for dragging limbs, etc., and there was a large pine about 10 feet behind me. I cut a small tree, about 5inches in diameter, about 8 feet long, and positioned it in front of the tricycle front end. I then backed the tractor up as far as I could and set the brakes. I tied the chain to the bottom of the pine behind me, and tied the other end as high as I could on the tractor, below the seat. I then pulled forward slowly, and the front end lifted out of the hole. I killed the engine and left it in gear, and it held. I then went around to the front end and slid the log under the front wheels, where they nested perfectly. I then simply backed the tractor up, and I was free of the trap the muskrat had set for me. The old Allis never let me down, and that day was no exception.

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
