    With all the rain I know getting stuck in the mud is happening a lot. So far this year my mowers have been stuck 8 times. 5 with the Gravely and 3 with the Grasshopper.

    First time I got the exmark stuck in 3 years was last Friday. I went home and got the New Holland come- a- long to pull her out.

    The first time I got my exmark lazar z hp stuck was when it had rain for a week, but thank God I was at home and I ran off in the field next to my house. I pulled myself out with my JD LT133. The second time was last tuesday it was not raining I just got hung up in a ditch the back end of the Exmark got stuck on the one side of the ditch and raised my wheels off the ground. Wheels were just spinning in the air. Luckly I had my 48" W/B belt drive I hook up a tow strap and pull my lazer Z HP right out of that ditch. Needless to say I was a little embarassed, I had onlookers the second time.:eek: ;):( ;) :cool:

    When I owned my 52" Lazer HP I am embarrassed to admit I got it stuck 7 times in one season. My TTHP 48" I have only had it stuck 1 time (knock on wood)

    Too many times to count. :eek:
     
  7. Had the Toro 580-D stuck 5 times this year.
    Pulled it out with the Toro 325 4WD or come-a-long.

    I'd put new tires on it this year with lots of tread.
    Where I used to loose traction with the old bald tires,
    the new ones let me wade in too deep into wet areas.
    Then I'm really stuck!:mad:

    Here's pics of the new tires.

    First year I haven't.

    Previous years, too many to remember.
