Well I and the 180 got a little damage pulling out the 7130. The good Lord must have been sitting on my left shoulder, luckily I only received minor scratches and a few bruises to the back right side of my head, ear and shoulder/bicep. Never had a big chain break and do this. No jerking, we were on a steady pull and it let go. Next morning I spent two hrs cleaning up glass and found the big cable and went back to try again.

Brad glad you are still here, know of a guy here that got stuck and stopped a neighbor driving by and he got into the pulling tractor and started pulling and th tow rope broke, went into the cab, severed his head.

We need to be safe out there!

you are sure lucky.

I keep a piece of heavy old carpet that i toss over chains when doing a pull like that.
the heavy dead weight of the carpet tends to arrest the chain movement in case of a snap

I doubt that a tow rope or strap is any safer. They stretch so much before they break that they store up a tremendous amount of energy to launch the hook.
They may be stronger, but nothing is unbreakable.

You are one lucky guy.

I still have a dent in the fuel tank on my 930 diesel from trying to pull a man out of a ditch when the chain gave way

I've lost parts that flew under the tractor and truck when pulling something. I've learned that an old tire chained between two vehicles will help. Tire gives sorta spring effect to help get heavy loads moving or get one unstuck.

Yea not good, you're lucky, had a guy tell me his brother was killed when the clevis he was using came back through the window. Good idea with the jacket on the chain, I will try to remember that.

Brad,
You are a lucky fella. And yes, God was with you. This same thing happened to me and my brother on Memorial weekend back in 1991. It was so wet here in Southern Minnesota, my brother and I were helping a neighbor try to plant soybeans. We were trying to work up some bean ground for planting. My brother was driving the 4890 Case 4 WD and he buried it with the field cultivator. So I tried to pull him out with the 1370 Case. As I dug more holes pulling him, the chain and cable we hooked together, the chain came unhooked and acted like a broken rubber band and went flying through the front windshield of the 4890, just missed my brother's head and broke the lower right cab wndow and broke the throttle lever off on the dash. I will NEVER forget that day! Things can happen so fast. In my situation, nobody was hurt except our pride. Windows were replaced on the tractor. And we eventually got the crop in the field. I am glad to read you are OK.

That can be scary - I had it happen back about 30 years ago. I was trying to pull a semi tractor out of the ditch during a snow storm with my 930. The chain broke and nailed me on the side of the head. Rang the old bell pretty good. After that when someone went in the ditch I told them they could use the phone to call a tow truck.

Thank God your ok! There is a guy 45 miles from here that will never be the same as his ending wasn't as good. SEE LINK A lot of people learned a lesson and now have tow straps or ropes. One thing I learned with chains is if you hang coveralls or a jacket etc... on the middle of the chain if bit breaks the coveralls will take the energy out of the chain and it will drop to the ground and won't become a projectile.

Today's Featured Article - The Ferguson System Principal An implement cutting through the soil at a certain depth say eight inches requires a certain force or draft to pull it. Obviously that draft will increase if the implement runs deeper than eight inches, and decrease if it runs shallower. Why not use that draft fact to control the depth of work automatically? The draft forces are ... [Read Article]
