          I worked on farms for years and later thier busted up junk.

          farmers and loggers can bust anything, Iv seen 5.500" 4140 pins busted in two, go try that and see what it takes.

                  I can almost guarantee the pic of the 4wd tractor plowed into the high voltage tower had autosteer or gps where apparently the gps was unaware of the obstacle and also the operator..........

                    Thought I'd seen some bad things but they wouldn't rate with the pictures just shown.

                      The pictures are intresting but I'd like to know the Rest Of The Story (according to the drunken farm hand operating the tractor ).

                        The rumor I heard on the first pic was that it happened about 1 hour north of Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. Only about 45 minutes away.
                        The guy was going to get hay bales (see the trailer hitch?), the hydraulics failed and the loader dropped into the road at 20 mph. Folded the front end right under.

                        This was the coffee shop rumor anyways, so it is quite likely it has been embellished somewhat.

                          Story I read on that one is that the farmer actually had a full load of hay, was traveling with his young granddaughter in the cab, one of them accidentally pushed the loader lever forward, loader dug into ground and peeled up tractor like pretzel. Both grampa and granddaughter only had minor injuries, fortunately...

                            Wow, not everyday you come home from work and say "Honey -- I totally the tractor"

                            One picture does not fit --- that Hitachi is either a fake or was done on purpose.

                              Farmer near us was flying down the road with FIL in back of him. Had foot up on dash and it slipped off and fell to floor while dropping disks at road speed. They paved road the day b4 and disks dug in and went for it. FIL seen him trying to grab lever to raise them. Probably jerked his fillings out!
