We've all been there, working on slopes that we really shouldn't have. Lets hear some stories. I've got two. One was putting in a power trench with a large DitchWitch riding trencher. I was going across a slope, and at points both of my uphill tires where in the air, and I was only kept from rolling by the digging bar being in the ground and I had the backfill blade tilted and lowered (so I was trenching and dozing ) to help stabilize it. Definitely not a fun spot to be in. The other time I was running a rental mini-ex and went to cross a 4'x24" trench. I used the bucket to lift the tracks as I crossed, but the trench edge gave away and I ended up dropping the back of the tracks in the pit. I ended up staring at the sky. The good news is that you can almost always get yourself out when your in a mini-ex.
