Ford (Tractor) Rescued At Noon!

Experience it in glorious stereophonic sound! Almost as good as getting wet pants yourself!

(Luckily, no riders had been injured)

not to be rude, but....? is there a good story behind that particular tractor making a polar bear swim or was it someone importants tractor? (hence using a helo to retrieve it...)

Just curious  Smile vehicles went through the ice all the time in NH when I was living up there....but then again I never heard/saw how they were retrieved...

Hi MarsSciGuy, I read the tractor belongs to a local farmer who took an established winter shortcut on a lake. Since ice isn't partularly strong this winter, and he was also pulling a heavy trailer load, he got submerged but luckily was able to escape the cabin.

I don't know whether 1968 Fords are much sought after, or was it an environmental concern, but voluntary divers attached the slings and a Finnish Army helicopter pulled the tractor up as a practice mission for free (as illustrated).

One thing is that our lakes is typically very shallow and one large object left underwater could harm fishing for a century, and everyone would know the culprit as a piece of the Häkkinen or the Kovalainen family heirloom.

Had to have been an interesting training excercise! Actually, 1968 Fords might be sought after, isn't that the "golden jubilee" year?

LOL My dad had a yellow and white Cub International that was probably from the 60s or 70s, as well as the Ford Jubilee and now a much newer Massey Ferguson. (the Ford and the Massey were both majority red, with either black or grey  Wink
