View Full Version : Oops! An expensive beach launching.

Here is a picture of a beach launching in NZ that went horribly wrong. Sent to me by someone in the tractor company.

The tractor owner backed it too far and the wet sand simply let the tractor sink. They eventually pulled the tractor out but it's wrecked.:o :o :o :o

Hi Charls

At least the front end loader bucket should be OK.

It would seem that the NZers havn't heard of using old Inters and the like to do their beach launching.

It was only a John Deere anyways ;)

Hmmm, think I'd be letting the boat off the trailer about now, looks like it should be nearly floating on it's own.

the old qewi starwagons and taragos would have yanked it out better than that--even with all the kuds and cousins in the car bro !
