    Check out that flex. Look real close, theres 90 degrees between the tractor rear axle and the front axle. Front axle is still on the ground. The cab can be seen at 45 degrees.

    Now...I may be way off here, but did anyone think to keep a couple of tires on the vegetation next to the road so that they wouldn't get hopelessly stuck?

    Man, I'd have a field day with that! Lets see...600 cars stuck x $25.00 a yank, = $15,000.00.... x every couple of miles. Hmmm, I could make a fortune pulling people outta the MUD! :laugh:

    And have fun doing it too! :D

    Just imagine a BMW being snatch strapped by a 454 Big Block K5,10,20 or 30. Lets see, do I use 4 wheel drive or two? Hmmm, let's try two wheel drive:haha::haha::haha::haha:

    Ah, dreams...

    The embankment in most of the pictures is several feet high, too high to stradle one side in the vegitation.

    Looks like you would be a while trying to pull anyone out of the mud. It goes on and on.

    Man how fingers love to point... Jesus knows, a hireling is worthy of the wages he earns by the labor he performs.

    But in all candor, I never, ever charge anyone, wheeler or not, for a yank, pull or winch out. It's not right. I've been stuck a time or two and needed help and always got it, so it's my pleasure to help out in return.

    Please do not confuse my statements. There is a big difference between 1 or 2 people stuck every now and then and 600 daily. 600 makes it a viable business opportunity. Just ask any tow truck operator here in the states. Oh wait, I forgot, they'll pull us out for free! :wink1: Anyone here ever get a refund on a tow bill from a MUD call? I venture to think not, but by your arguments, they are making a dishonest buck.

    I'm not trying to be a smart ass, but I'd be the very same American Capitalist Russian's have come to love. Do y'all understand my point? It would be a business, and by the looks of it, very lucrative.

    With all the dirty minded bastiges in here I can't believe everyone still thinks I was talking about retrieving vehicles.




    $25 Dollars a yank!!!!!!!! If that is not a funny phrase I don't know what is!! Get it? I'd be a millionaire???:doah:
