Also shows you’ll never get bogged plant off a wet sandy beach with a rising tide without a serious winch - the suction is phenomenal.
Absolutely they did drag it out with a big winch.They did have a big winch truck there and it did the work as I seen in other pictures somewhere, it had its line doubled up a few times and anchored to a couple of Volvo dump trucks.
I think the machine where just there to steady it up and stop it going over
A combination of everything I’d say. Dig around it where possible to reduce the ‘ground anchor’ effect and potentially open up a ramp to climb out of the hole. I think in the beach recovery they also used a couple of diggers to pull either way on the stuck machine’s boom to wobble it in the hole to try and break the suction as they winched it.So, what is the best recovery method? Forget anything moving to try and pull it out and get a winch with enough cable it can sit on firm ground and just grind it out?
The tide cannot be stopped - if you break down or get bogged you are in the shite very quickly.With anything involving boggy/waterlogged/wet sand etc you've got to get on to of the job straight away. That's why people have said on facebook if you're working on the beach have recovery there ready at all times. When it goes wrong the more you mess about the worse it gets fast.
