Caris the Gypsy – The Castle – Stuck in the Bowl

so, earlier we had some fun…

this would be “getting the f450 turbo diesel dually with the posi” stuck in the yard at summerset. trying to get the castle out.

… we didn’t even get to it 🙂

(and no, that jack leg isn’t broken, it’s pivoted that way on purpose)

so we have to fight the big truck back up onto the hard stuff…

and break out the come-a-long and the straps.

this is a skid strapped to the tongue of the trailer, (2) 3,000 lb ratchet straps to keep the trailer from going anywhere when we reset the come-a-long, and a 2 ton come-a-long to do the pulling. anchor is the top hitch on the f450…

to make it work, the tolerances were a bit on the close side.. 🙂

but no, they didn’t touch.

i really hate to have to work this way, but caris doesn’t have the winch installed yet… 🙂

almost far enough up to pull it out with the bus…
(which was really easy, detroit locker for the win)

to be continued…
