A tree saver strap and a deep cycle battery with a ATV winch on a home made plate that I can hook to a tree has saved me a few times.

It doesn't matter how much chain you have- you will always be a couple feet short! When your out mowing and hit that wet spot and just sink I always jam a couple boards under the rear tires and it will usually suck it under when your in reverse and walk right out

I learned not to get stuck, that is the difference 12 years of mowing makes.

All I could do is back my trailer as far as I could and try to hook to it. I have a 2500 diesel 4x4 that would have sunk to the frame. I can't leave ruts.
