Hi all

Doing some renvovation to our new house in Vic. keeping the story short, we just filled in a big trench for the new plumbing and that arvo, i hired a bobcat to clean up the rest of the yard. After running up and down beside the filled in trench, I unfortunately back the bobcat in and fell into the soft sand. The yard has all very sandy soil. The bobcat fell on a bad angle and we tried everything to pull it out, causing it to fall closer and closer to the side of the house. By this time I had to dig the teeth on the bucket into the ground to stop it moving. There was a 12m skip in the driveway and no way to get the 4b in to tow or winch. we tried the hand winch and ropes, everything. Right about now my old mans says, "what about those orange track thingos at the other house. Quickly my partner ran home, (other house around the corner) and got the maxtrax. I slotted them under the front wheel and drove straight out. It was unbelieveable. As far as i am concerned they just paid for themselves as no damage was done to the house and i didn't have to pay for another days hire on the bobcat. My partner got some photo's, she thought she had it on video, but there was a small technical clitch, so I will post up the pics later.

cheers

What a testament. Glad you got out that easily. It would have been a long drive with the loader from here to lift it out. First post in a while mate, hope to see you soon.
Cheers,

Yes mate, been busy, browse but no posting. Renovation, boat restoration, comp truck and work, fills my months. The bobcat only just fit around the trees and the bin, no chance the loader would have got to it.
They were a great recovery item.
One day we will get there, pop in here anytime

Will pass on a date to you in the next day or so. Have you been ballooning yet? Heather is going to have to learn to fly one too, I will probably have my eyes closed. We may share a flight.

I saw the comp truck on Saturday. Just needs about three to four weeks work. Perhaps keep off the house for that period. LOL

Shaker, the boat is probably as good a place to pour money.. isn't it? LMAO
Cheers,
