I hear you, I've pulled my car out of the ditch with my walk-behind 15hp before.

That a bigger machine would've been better, in this case you might have been lucky it wasn't a bigger machine.

I had a old murray tractor that i used to play around with when i was like 10 and i got it stuck in my back yard in our ditch...the ditch has bamboo and i was facing towards the bamboo and with me not thinking i just thought the bamboo would callaspse so i put the mower in like 5th gear and went into it and the d@mn thing just came back....lol it was a B!tch to get turned over....
