That was a bit like here last week. You've got to be brave and just stop. Doing nothing is more productive! :ugeek:

Ah righto thanks Fred. The weather can be a bit like that here too, but not generally as persistent.

Hmmm there are those times I'd wish I'd just waited a couple of days instead of having a crack at it and getting bogged.

I agree with the comments about the 9 finding an old pond or frozen hole.I don't think anybody could have kept on spinning the tracks to get it that deep!

Dowsetts D9 was working in a borrow pit on a Motorway extension in Yorkshire.

Was this on the Barnsley section of the M1 around 1967 or maybe 68 Trevor??

This Manitou clearing the site for new houses had to be extracted by a Quadtrac after a John Deere had nearly bogged itself trying
