    Help me!!!!!!! its a 323 series and i've got it high centered in mud, i've tried all the usual things like putting boards under it and even capstones around all the wheels, i thinking now about getting a come-a-long puller and a floor jack and trying my best to bring it level.

    Can you use the bucket to pull the front wheels out of the much?

    Tip it forward, and drop it, should pick the machine up.

    then you can dig out the dirt under it and stick a few boards.

    You left it in the mud to ask the internet board for help? Get out there and put your back into it. Come along should work, I would think.

    This is where tracks make all the difference. For future reference if you know its going to be a mud pit, bring some scrap plywood with you and put it in the muddiest spots.

    Luckily the first time I used a dingo I had rented the backhoe so when I got it stuck on a hill I just pulled myself out.

    I would be leery of using the truck to pull it out, nothing like recking a $24k machine. Good luck and please, photo's...

    lol, that's exactly why i bought a tracked machine ( although i have gotten it stuck before....

    and as long as you hook to something solid pulling out with a truck shold be fine.

    $24K???? wheeled units are only about $12-14K

    oops, your right, I keep thinking of the 425tx + implement quotes I've gotten.

    Hey you changed your Avatar, it used to be the green palm plant and pot right? Why don't you add some of your own Dingo's in action pictures to the thread I started. I consider you to be one of the experts, come on show off your machine. http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=131815
