It is a good sign that he was there to knock on your door.

He was on a side slope with half a bucket of dirt.  It looks like the bucket was over 2 feet up and it also looked like the little back hoe was turned just a little toward the down hill side.  It is a ford, newer but not brand new with ROPS and cab, a little bigger than my Kioti LK3054.  He was cutting into the side slope to create a more level path from his new barn toward the pond and it looks like the up hill wheels were on hard dirt/grass and the down hill wheels were in soft stuff or he might have gotten stuck there before and rutted up the down hill side.  He did have his seat belt on which kept him from being flung onto the big rock that the side of the cab hit.  It was over on its side nearly horizontal with all kinds of leakking going on when I got there.  He had about 5 keys on the key ring and the force broke the ford key off in the starter switch. 

I knew when I got there the combination of position and it beig a little larger than my tractor with back hoe meant my Kioti wouldnt do the job.  I hooked a chain over the tire and around the base of the ROPS and used his toyata tundra in low range four wheel, and Ill be Dangd ifin it didn't come right up.  Just some bent metal on the cab.

Also the neighbor some how clipped his fingers in the toyota door getting out of it and I found out yesterday he later got attacked by the beaver while he was comiserating down by the pond.

Tell him to count his blessings. Neighbor of mine went out last year and got his truck stuck so he got his MF 35 to pull it out when we found him he had hooked the chain to the pin where the toplink would hook up to the tractor and the tractor was on top of him his wife works at our 911 center and she got the call to send the ambalance he didn't make it and that is just to sad for as good a man as he was. He would help anybody in the comunity that needed it and we all miss him.

Man working in the dark just isn't worth it sometimes. Wifes cousin got killed a few years back brush hogging some stuff at a land fill, His wife found him when she went out looking for him after he didin't come home. As near as they can figure he got one side of the tractor onto some palstic they had layed out and he slid it sideway over the high wall. Tractor was totaled the brush hog got a rebuild. but a good man lost his life working late so he wouldn't have to come back the next day.

A friend was killed working a tricycle gear row crop on a side hill. Life is already too short. No point hastening the process. I may take a little longer but I try to think it through first.  Not like when I was young and bulletproof :D
