    A bobcat? I Didn't know those animals were that strong? How'd you get a chain or rope around it?

    I would try everything else before calling Schneider. I been pulled out before, non ditch related, just got stuck on ice in a parking lot and they didn't care.

    I had an o/o pull me out at a customer who had a dirt yard. Thanks him a million times

    If you can get ANY forward/backward movement going go one direction all the way then take some gravel and fill a little bit of the hole with gravel. Then go the other way, add a little more gravel. Basically making a little slope of gravel each time that raises you up a little further. Run a chain through the holes in a drive tire that's spinning and wrap it around the outside of the tire and back through again - redneck tire chains. A pickup or mid-sized tractor should easily be able to pull you out bobtail then.

    I buried this little Mack with 4 bald tires until it was dragging the underside of the front axle on the ground. Took some gravel and made little ramps and while I was doing that one of the guys from the shop headed my way with an old Chevy 1500. It came out with absolutely no fuss, didn't even spin the tires on the pickup. Worth a shot with the tractor if you haven't gotten it out by now.
