That's never happened to me, just too much floatation from my marvelous Kitty!

That's another Bobcat that can't wait to get started as an anchor, looks like it wanted to be part of the foundation anchor!

It means you not working hard enough LOL

I've buried my takie more times than I can remember. Of course I'm always working in a freaken swamp! I would classify this picture as slightly stuck, stucks when you can't see the tracks and muds coming into the cab. been there, done that, got the tee shirt, will probably happen again too!

Why would you have pallet forks on a T300 in mud that deep?????

Maybe the other rubber tired skid steer got stuck in the same place, and he wanted to show off.

I think that's a spill guard for the bucket... too wide to be forks?

Thats what I was thinking. the operator shouldn't have kept spinning the tracks if he wasnt goin anywhere...

I would be scared of putting too much pressure on that wall and having it crack or blow out. I never run parallel with a wall if I can help it.

It happens to be a T320 with a bucket on it (equiped with spill guard).It is my machine with inexperienced opertor by the looks of things:laugh::laugh:

I thought that looked like the spill guard on your machine, I wasnt sure though...

So whats the story behind it?

I rent my machine out to some friends once in a while for the small excavation jobs.
They were backfilling the foundation/wall in a very soft muddy condition.
As Ben says and the picture shows, never run parrallel with a wall/or trench in soft muddy conditions
reason #1 is u could get stuck ,#2 with soft muddy conditions you are putting much more pressure to the wall.If the soil is dry it will compact enough to carry the weight of the machine instead of pushing the exess material to the side of ur machine
But u have to remeber that some of my friends might be bobcat haters just like B C ron:laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:
Some guys they simply dont care where they drive into with a machine like this and get smart tooo late.
So to answer your question i would say the the operator didnt have enough experience for the conditions he was running in.
He was backfilling parallel with the soft muggy trench when he plopped the one track into the trench .
And for Ron yet....luckily there was a CAT on site to unstuck the Bobcat:cool2::cool2:

I've done that before with a wheel skid, I just pulled the high side over with an excavator and rolled the skid back, pulling it directly behind it would have been harder.

I wouldn't be even backfilling a foundation with mud. The hydraulic pressure can cave in the wall.

Never heard of that ?

When you are backfilling with mud the weight of the mud can cave in a concrete wall.

Always backfill with dry dirt.

Hey bobcat ron: Is yours a 247B or 57 (series 2?)
If the economy holds I intend to get a b2 next year

247B2, and we have seen a wall bow out from hydraulic pressure as a result of slop being used, mud is 3 times heavier than dry dirt and in some cases, it will self level itself out.

Getting stuck is the fun part, getting out of the machine and walking through ass deep mud.....well that ain't fun.

Walkin through deep mud isnt fun anyway! Especially when you have a nice clean sealed cab and you have to get in all muddy and you trash it! :wall I hate when that happens, I am sure dirtman knows all about that! :laugh:

I haven't got a machine stuck in mud but working in deep enough mud it was making the backhoe fight for traction. The worst part is when you have to get out of the cab and your in knee deep mud.

Usually most contractors will stop the job if the site is turning into a mud pit its too much work to fix the damage after the ground dries up.
