What good is a mat going to do if you're already stuck?

I'm sure that's gotta be really embarrassing getting stuck.

it is embarrassing! i have several accounts in a certain area that the soil gets really mucky during the rainy season. my mower will just sink into the ground so i have to use my ferris walk behind to mow these lots. ive even gotten my truck stuck trying to pull out my mower. i had to wave down some guy in a hummer to pull my mower and my truck out!

What do guys do that you get stuck so bad a come along with pulley multiplier can't pull a 1000lb mower up and over a 5ft cliff. Keep the truck off the same mush that stuck the mower.

use a long tow rope or several tied together if necessary. you can always use a truck no matter what the situation is. i had to do that once. we used 3 tow straps about 50ft long each so i could keep the truck off the soggy area.
