the feedlot

I used to know this guy named Bob, he worked in a little feedlot. Among the equipment used there were a pair of WD45 Allis tractors. Due to their small size they were usually hitched to the feeder wagon, it made getting close to the bunk a lot easier. One january thaw, the WD with the narrow front was parked with the front wheels still packed with mud. Come the next morning the temp had dropped considerably, and the front wheels were froze to the pedestal, and no way would they turn unless someone removed them and chopped out all that mud. Not a problem, Bob just used the WD with the wide front. He used it for better than a week, and then it warmed up again. Come the next dawn, he fired it up and found the front tires had settled a good five inches into the mud, and were froze down tight. You could see the tires give some but they weren't coming out of their frozen ruts. Bob being the resourceful type, thought maybe lifting them out would be easier, put the Allis in 4th gear, revved it up, popped the clutch, and sure enough saw the front of the tractor rise. Quickly after moving forward just a little, he pushed in the clutch, the front end came down with the most goshawful crash. It seems the tires didn't come up at all, they, the rims, and the whole wide front were still stuck down, and by popping the clutch he'd snapped the whole pedastle off. When it landed, the oil pan came down across the axle, engine running of course. It needed a few parts after that, oil pan, oil pump, axle etc. If I remember right, he did get fired, right after he fixed it all. Ah winter, gotta love it. John in Nebraska
