    I'd get a 200 size (45,000 lb.) or so size excavator to dig out the wheels and dig a "ramp" up to firmer ground. That's a big machine to bury up to the tops of the wheels and then try to pull out.

    Be sure and post how you got it out, I'd love to hear.

    this pic. has been all over the net. in fact I think it showed up last spring when it was wet here in the midwest. I would dig away from it with a 44,000 pound hoe and then hook a good sized cable and pull it out. If you are the owner or operator of this machine you are a fool for taking the x-tra time to stick it even worse. Been there done that and leaned my lesson........
