    I got more sense than to eat what the avgerage driver offers. Thing is a jury of his peers is gonna be chosen in farm country. Again the company representative never said stop. They got what they got at the hand of a ####### driver. Not the farmer

    The farmer was acting very strangely thus the driver may have chosen not to get out of the truck or interact with him. I would imagine he was calling the police.

    it boils down to simply being the better person. nothing more, nothing less.

    i'm a hoosier through and through. my best friend growing up was the daughter of hog farmer, we lived down the road from each other. i still live in the midwest. i spent a lot of time being around, helping and working with farms and its people.

    it's disappointing to see a farmer act in such a manner. none of the folks i grew up with would condone that behavior.

    "Education" is a whole-life-long thing, not just "formal."

    that’s why life lessons cost a lot more then any education.

    common sense is the federal aid of life lessons.

    The farmer is either functionally retarded or malicious. Period. I can't think of any farmer who doesn't realize that radiators live behind grills, and that radiators are fragile.
    Steering wheel holder isn't too bright either.
    At the end of the day, there are established legal procedures for a trespassing truck getting stuck. Nowhere in those procedures is "ram a fork through the grill and radiator". Besides, it's a great way to get a truck broke down and puking coolant in your field, in addition to being stuck.

    The farmer knew exactly what he was doing. Even said got to get to the timing cover to push it.

    At one point said something about going to have to push from the side. I thought here goes the fuel tank.

    Thats what happens when you pull the axle not the tow point, yes it takes a jerk on the chain to have that happen too, but, improper pull point, trying to pull out a truck and trailer from the mud relying only on suspension shackles is not the way to go
     
    Labrador Thanks this.

    This driver in the video got what he deserved after tearing up private property and then getting stuck. With or without the "Road Closed" signs and barricades.Maybe there should be more places out in the world with backhoes for idiot drivers. Well played, Mr. Farmer, well played.

    Private property is private property.
