That could be a good song. I tried digging down the back tires but getting underneath the tires is difficult because the ground is still very frozen. I've got an excavator guy coming today to look at it to see what he could do. I thought about digging under head but the machine could only get so far under. I think I might dig behind front tires and put some rail ties under to see if we can pull it up onto them

Be carefull you do not stretch the combine. Real easy with enough horsepower.A cable on front axle tied up under is a good help. Put this on before things get dicey

If you could get a chain through the wheel spoke you could tie a large log or rail road tie to the outside of the wheel crossways to the direction of travel and then reverse and by the wheel turning it will lift the whole combine up and push it back out of the hole . But you should have something there to hold the tire up after the revolution so you can remove the log . ( a poor mans unstucker )

If it was possible to unlatch the bottom of the header then the head could be lifted away from the combine with a trackhoe . That would be one less thing to get broken or abused. Then if it won’t pull without stretching it I’d lift around the wheels with a trackhoe and get something under it to raise it out of the hole. Gravel would be easier than ties. Either way you do it the last thing you want is anything broken once your out. Better to cough up some money getting it out safely and in one piece. Good luck.
