    A couple of things to keep in mind.
    1-when we made the decision to move equipment the roads were clear,a quick snow squall came through and dropped a good amount of snow quick.
    2-we had two options to get this tractor out of there.These tractors have a park brake that can only be released with hydraulic pressure.You just ain’t going to be able to drag it with it locked in park.One option is to do it the way we did or to hire a crane or a large tow truck.Either or the whole tractor would of had to been lifted and set onto the trailer.
    3-the tractor leaking a little oil is what you would call a casualty of war.It got cleaned up,we lost about 3 gallons total.You can’t plug off the ports where the oil was coming from.Those were pressure return ports and the reason why we had to even have the tractor running was drive it and release the brakes.
    4-snow was pushed onto and over the oil to contain it and keep it from running off the road.If you don’t think it works try it,pour a few gallons of oil on your black top driveway it will not flow as fast mixed with snow.
    5-yes the guys were cracking jokes but what you didn’t see is we all cried before that and held hands all we lacked was being able to hold a puppy.

    Everybody is entitled to an opinion after all this is social media.....I just wanted to explain a few things is all.

    Wow I can't believe what I saw ! Bummer , You kept your composure good I know that's gonna take a little bit a coin to fix , roads get slick quick , here in NC they use that brine , I could swear it makes the roads worse because it melts them and then it freezes again and it's just a sheet of ice when I lived up north are used to plow them and then throw the rock salt down and then put the cinders on it and that Is what saved you , from slipping, you know you could drive pretty much as fast as you want to go if you're used to that kind of conditions. soon as it snows here ,back in the woods here we got five people in the ditch you know, ,nobody was hurt that's the best news, looking at the snow I miss that , looks beautiful, used to live in Northeast Pennsylvania and go up to Oneida lake New York a lot I'm in North Carolina now and this year we haven't got any snow two years ago we got about four snowfalls but I miss the snow that's for sure I'm sure you didn't miss it when this incident happened though!😳😊

    AG tires suck in those conditions and surfaces. I know my pucker factor goes to an immediate 10 every time a machine slips.

    Glad no one was hurt, and at least you had your own equipment to clean things up and didn't have to pay anyone!

    One of The Hired hands said that it was awesome and giggled. You're a lot more gracious than I would be. I would have fired him along with the one who ran into the tree. That has to have cost into the tens of thousands to fix.

    Worked at an airport, they used these to cut grass. Complained about how rough it was, so maintenance drove a roller over the entire thing... with the vibrate on. Turned it into a washboard. The vibration caused mower decks and wheels to fall off, fun times.

    I watched the video and read a dozen comments and still don't know how this happened? The tractor was running on it's own power into the tree or it was on a trailer? And how fast was it going at impact time?

    Without chains tractors suck on snowt/icy surfaces. Now the question, pay for it out of pocket or call the insurance company.

    Icy roads, pulling a heavy load, cars off the roada, and the phone rings. "I better answer that." Actually, I think you needed a few more bubbas wandering around.
