Got my shop tractor, a 4540 Mahindra buried up past its drawbar and needed to remove it. I tried putting material under the wheels (tires never "bit" just right), jacking up the tractor (jack just sank into the mud), pushing myself out with the front end loader (just tore up the yard, ground too soft), and cursing at it 10+ different ways, but nothing seemed to do the trick. I figured it was time for the V7 tractor! It actually did the job perfectly, the additional weight of the "new" powerplant added a lot of pulling power and a much longer wheelbase than before (always a good thing) and with a couple good yanks, the 7,700+ pound shop tractor came right out!
