I guess I should probably put some lights on this tractor. This is what I got for trying to finish up a field in the dark.

Don't feel too bad! A friend of mine was plowing in broad daylight a few years ago and one of the rear wheels fell through/into a groundhog den. Tractor went clear to the axle just like yours. It took a lot of "oomph" (about 100 hp tractor) to get it out. Good luck.

That picture could be worth $100 to you on the Profi or other site (can't think of it now) where they post pics of seriously stuck or broken machinery every month....

I've seen pictures like that before, where it looks like there is absolutely no bottom to the hole, amazes me. Here in NW PA at least we have a clay bottom about 12" deep that stops the descent! You may have had a little better chance without the loader on the NFE. That's an instant boat anchor.

Dont feel bad...Same thing happened to me last year under the same circumstances. Took almost a month for it to dry up enough to pull it out.
