Fired up the old 9500 today to get it ready for a cancer benefit carnival this Saturday.
After a battery charge and some fuel, it fired right and and sounded good.
Been parked in the front yard all winter.
Got it to move about a foot and the front end sank in about 4 inches.
Hooked the tractor to it and still did not budge.

So for now it stays in the yard as art, until the ground dries out good or we get another big tractor to hook up next to the TS-100.

I was glad it did fire right up Mike.
But it is not down to the axles yet and I knew when to quit.
That 637 under the front seat is heavy.

Nice to hear it fired, hopefully you can get her out before Saturday. I've had to put in a 20 foot section of corduroy road through the soft area by the barn we store ours in.

Years ago we had a hired man came walking back from the field said "tractor is mired in up to the wheel", on an old Farmall, only wheel you could see was the steering wheel.

Those big trucks don't do well in wet grass, especially if they have been there through a freeze/thaw cycle!

I'll see if I can get another tractor to help tomorrow.
The New Holland is on solid ground and did not even budge the 25,000+ pound truck.
If I can't get it out tomorrow, I'll make a good size donation to the 11 year old boy, who has a rare form of brain cancer.

It will come out when the ground dries out this summer.

I had to look up corduroy road to see what you meant.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corduroy_road

My translation would be "cord-of-wood" road!
