love my 7.3

I just wanted to share my last friday with you guys. So i own a concrete company and never had a concrete mixer truck stuck but we have had a lot of rain and prob should have not tried to back it off the road. While i was backing the truck in nice and slow to make sure the was not going to sink (because if it looked like it was i was going to pull him back up) the driver decided to punch the gas and the truck completely sinks all 8 rear tires were lost an but the front ones were still on the road, so im kicking myself in the *** now and try and pull the truck with my excavator and nothing happens, then i have my guys unload 8 of the 10 cy off the truck and still nothing. then im like ok well lets try the pickup and see if it will work well what do you know 4low is the **** poped the cement truck right out everyone said it looked like i was making a ford commercial lol hope yall like my story

That's funny right there because the same thing happened to me. I was having a slab pulled and was going to bring in some gravel to lay down. Well the cement minxer showed before the gravel truck and swore he wouldn't get stuck. Sure enough he was buried. Got the load off and hooked the SD to it and in 40 low plucked him right out. The only thing better would to have a video of it for you tube. They have a couple on there of a SD pulling a 18 wheeler out of a mess!! These things have some bottom end when it's needed.

I don't doubt your SD's abilities, but an excavator couldn't do it, but a pickup could? Basis laws of friction and physics were broken if this is true.

Not really. Those 4x4 250`s are BEASTS. I have not pulled any thing other than a car hauler with my diesel, but in my 01 4x4 v-10 triton, I snatched a dump truck (empty) out of hole like it was nothing.
