Beat this stuck!!!!!

65 ton LeTourneau stacker. Tires about 3.5' wide about 8 or 9' tall sits pretty damn high and yes 4wheel drive. But i managed to get it stuck. checked the rut out after i got pulled out by another stacker and it was like 3 foot deep.

lol actually the stuck dosent look that bad but my tire only turned maybe a 1/3 of a rotation and it sank that far. It took another stacker the same size and a 3/4'' chain to pull her out. They had another stacker near me but it was only a 30 ton and it wouldnt budge it.

It was invented to move logs but we redid some stuff and made it to where we stack plate. Lol! And I'm not bragging but I'm the best Stacker driver we've got now in our department. The last guy that knew how to drive it was insanely good and moved to another department. I'm getting there tho I just didn't see that soft spot. Its like playing a video game kinda, just no extra lives. You have switch that turns it left and right witch it pivots in the middle of the stacker, another switch that makes the forks go up and down, and a switch to tilt the mast front and back. Also it has no gas pedal or brake pedal, it has a peace of bar flat with a knob on one end and the other end is connected to cylinder shape object on the other end. It rotates clockwise and counter clockwise. Clockwise up to the 11 o'clock position goes forward and counter clockwise to the 1 o'clock position. Now those positions are full speed. In between you a little slower and 6 o'clock position is neutral. The brakes is making it go the opposite way on the throttle. Its really kinda hard to explain. The way LeTourneau builds there equipment, such as front end loaders and stackers, is they have a diesel that spin a something that produces electricity. Then witch is sent down to the wheel that have there own separate motors that are powered by the electricity.
