    Come along and tow straps. Also a 200ft coil of climbing rope.

    Climbing rope has saved my butt, once with a truck and once with a skid. Ratchet strap has also worked albeit a little slow.

    Some of the properties I take care of don't really have trees close enough. I thought of making some kind of mat. And my only other mower is a 36 wb

    It's worth a try. If that doesn't work then you can always carry along a length of rope, tie it to the nearest object (fence post, tree etc) and the tie the other end to a come along. It's just a thought. You could also put more aggressive tires on your mower.
