8010 pull points

With the recent rains, and more to come in the forecast for this fall, I was looking at my 8010 wondering were do most guys hook to pull them out? I'm assuming those big loops on the back are a no-no but not sure.. Does a guy need to go to the front ax like the 2388s?

The eyelets on th rear are the hook points, but they are intended to only to be pulled STRAIGHT and not at an angle. Doing so presents the risk of bending the frame.

I have pulled from the eyelets at the back and the front axle. Combining flowers as the frost was going out this spring led to a couple unexpected mudholes.

I remember one harvest where we were getting combines stuck several times a day. One person just sat in a tractor all afternoon pulling out the combines. The wet areas were spread throughout the field so it was very hard to map them out. Sometimes you'd get stuck on one pass only to have the next pass over go through ok. Had a 7120 and a 7230. We just pulled them out with a Y harness tow strap using those back hooks. The frames on these machines are pretty beefy compared to the old 1680 which never really had a frame at all. That fall it seemed like the duals gave the combine an ever so slight advantage over the 900s. I think the trick to pulling combines out of the mud is to have operators that know when to quit trying to dig themselves into a hole.
