so the parentals told me to fill in the mud pit in back behind the shed. so i was doing it with bolens. in water atleast 12-16 inches deep. finally i was doing one last swipe of dirt. and she ran out of gas. so she sunk down 3 inches into the smily muck while i ran to get gas from another tractor. she fired up again and i tried going in reverse to get out. i dug deeper. i went in forward and she pulled right out. these bolens HT series are simply amazing. i never thought id get it out. so that was my muddy adventure for today.
