    Hey, I'd like to see that thing in action myself, but I'm not about to try walking backwards in front of a driverless snow blower.
    Even if I had a video camera.

    we got several hours of freezing rain first before the big snow so there was really no correcting once the hill grabbed it.

    Looks to me like you needed to chain up. I have 4 of the Pewag army surplus chains I need to cut down to fit my tire size. Someone on Ebay stuffs one chain in a priority mail one rate box and saves a bundle on shipping compared to UPS. I get a note from the post office when they arrive as the mail clerks can barely pick up the boxes. Getting stuck is probably why folks really need two mogs . Surprised you could not just deploy the backhoe and drag your way out.

    chains are a yes.

    i considered using hte backhoe but honestly i'm nervous, it might not be apparent in the picture but its leaning to the side quite a bit and i'm nervous to deploy the weight of the backhoe without tipping it over.... side note, i've never used the backhoe so i'm not skilled with it at this point.

    At least the controls for deploying the backhoe are on the uphill side

    Tilt the hoe up just enough to swing it to the drivers side and use it as counterbalance as you raise it the rest of the way??? Just an idea from a guy who's not even there.

    Don't feel bad, I got a chained up cat 416 backhoe stuck in the snow today as a matter of fact, and had to pull myself out too.

    The backhoe boom fully extended and preferably with a full bucket makes an excellent counterweight to stabilize any precarious list (tilt to one side). Additionally, with the leverage of the backhoe boom weight behind the rear axles, the wimpy loader is able to raise the front wheels off the ground so that dunnage can be packed under a sunken front wheel.

    Aside from using the backhoe as a counterbalance/to extract yourself, as others have mentioned, even as wimpy as the loader is on the Winter SEE it can help push backwards in situations like that.
    Heck, supposedly Big Bison was in a much worse predicament than that and successfully deployed the backhoe.

    But good tires and/or chains are obviously most helpful for avoiding getting stuck in the first place.
