what is that thing used far too wade through brush?

Pretty much. Its a V-blade for wedging out firelines.

Come on now Jo give us the play by play. Was you in the seat or a watching.

Weren't me in the seat I just was there to help. I wish the stuff were mine too but not enough rust on it for it to belong to me. ;-)

In fairness to the operator, the trailer was just repainted and we also had a shower and the dozer just started sliding on the slope. They tried pulling the trailer out from under it but the plow jack knifed ond the trailer and was leveraging the tractor on over. We then hooked a cable onto the plow and pulled it off the ramps then drove the trailer out from under it. This is what happened next. Never seen this before.

We then unhooked the cable from the plow and winched the tractor back on its tracks as pretty as you please. Much better than a cup of coffee to wake you up though. :lol2:

BTW - Had to hook the cable to the tie down loop that is located about 2 feet from the rear of the tractor to pull it over. For a little bit the thing got to looking like a big arse mouse trap.

:lol2: :lol2: Matter of fact I did suggest we go ahead and change the oil. Afterall, we were right there in the ditch and everything would run off well and it would be easy to get too. :lol2: :lol2:

This reminds me of when I last caught the bus from my home town in the country to the city for uni and we passed a few people and cars that were around an overturned, open topped, cage trailer. Underneath this trailer was about 5 pigs just sitting there. None were injured. It looks like it overturned on the verge and was just lucky to 1. trap the pigs underneath and 2. not injure them. I'm sure it was somebody's monday-itis as well. :lol:
