I have seen it many times where something similar like that. This year was actually the first year, in the last 4 years that I did not get stuck this spring where I dump my grass clippings at. Usually in previous years I always get stuck in the area, and it takes me about 2 hours, some 2x8's, a car jack, and a buddy.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Wow that truck was buried!

Back when I worked for another company we had only 2wd trucks, every fall we'd get the leaf truck stuck at least 4 or 5 times. I dump at the same location even now with my business and when I first started I knew 4x4 was the thing to do. I got stuck back there one time because I had it in 2wd, buried it and then tryed to get out with 4x4 and I had bald tires. Now with new tires, I can go through stuff I shouldn't of went in to begin with

It's amazing how much of a difference 4x4 can make.
