I have been out in my winter car (land rover )and have had to abbandon it around 3 miles from the closest road ,
so does any one know any easy ways of removing a landrover that is stuck up to it axels in MUD .
have tryed putting things under wheels to get traction but all that is avalible for aprox 10 mile radius is heather


ANY IDEAS NEED TO GO BACK OUT TO IT LATER TONIGHT ?

Find a farmer with a tractor, buy a bottle of whisky (for his efforts, or to drown your sorrows if he won't help).

No winch I presume.......................nahhhh , that wud b 2 easy !
Do Landys have diff locks ?
Was in this situation in a Merc G Wagon when on my own , eventually I did it by locking all three diffs , then alternating between forward and reverse low ratio, and lock 2 lock wiggling on the steering , very difficult tho and it had me worried.
Easiest way wud b a friendly farmer , unless yr already trespassing on his land !
Problem with anything under the wheels is that in mud it just tends 2 get pushed aside.
Best of M8 !

OH it's just got a whole lot worse been to try and recover my landrover this morning , one of my mates has come down in his tractor (about an hours travelling in a tractor)attached the slings and the landrover was pulled out about 3foot then desaster struck the tractor sank up to its axals and is now also stuck .
we are now waiting on the loan of a jcb from another friend to get the tractor out .

yep she is out now got it out yesterday (sunday) had to use a JCB in the end as the ford new Holland tractor was also stuck up to its axells .
even the jcb sank but the guy driving it for me was a bit of a wiz with it and used the arms and feet on it to walk it out of the bog .
when the tractor sank i thought that was the last i would see of it till next summer when the bog dryed out .
what makes it even worse was the walk back to the proper road it took 3/4 of an hour
even the police helicopter stopped for a look , it hovered for a bit ,so we waved to them they waved back and the flew away .

p.s Chunky i promise you i may be welsh and stuck in the middle of a moor but i was more concerned about my well stuck lanndy out of the bog than the local ..totty .......sorry i mean live stock (honest)

Evoboy,

I learned from this:

Don't drive in Welsh fields and if you do, always wear a condom! And; tractors are crap, farmers buy JCB's!!

its nice to be able to go almost any were though and not have to worry about the evo geting dirty /damaged /broken in to /nicked i just leave the landdy any where (even on the top of open moor land :(
