I drove tippers a very long time ago, and driving through paddocks like that was always scarey, particularly after rain because of soft spots.
I got out on Tuesday, the truck got out on Wednesday, the concrete is still there in the paddock.
A big tow truck pulled it out, the hard part is the lack of tow points on the back of the truck.
The highlight of the day was nearly stepping on a brown snake while walking around the paddock.
Though I once got bogged like that on the edge of a main road. It was going nowhere. I got dragged out by a backhoe, he put it on stands and just pulled me out with the hydraulics. So easy. Though first he tried to tow me out, it just bounced up and down on the bitumen! 22 tonne of truck and load.
I too have scared myself with snakes on new subdivisions, slid out of the truck straight onto a snake that ran away!! Thank Christ as i was wearing Japanese Safety Shoes. thongs!!
