No one hurt, but not a good way to spend my birthday. Made a cub fest project out of getting it back over, Richard, Mark, and Marc helped.
Me not hurt and tractor not hurt. Praise the Lord.

Ouch! Glad you weren’t hurt!

Were you on an embankment or incline?

Didn’t see your birthday listed, but happy birthday anyway! Tell Joyce to take you into town for ice cream-or maybe something stronger after the day you’ve had!

Glad neither you nor the tractor were hurt.
Was the bucket elevated when it went over?

Explain to us how it happened. I always try to learn from someone else's "mistakes", so I don't have to make them myself (I make enough mistakes as it is!). We all need certain safety procedures reinforced from time to time. SO glad no serious injuries, to you or your equipment.

I was adding dirt from the pond (cleaning out the upper end of pond) and was putting it along the bank of a retaining pond above the big pond.
Yes the loader was up and box blade on back. Front wheel gave away and starting sliding with not stopping. Loader and box blade saved the tractor from damage. Tractor is a Kubota 2601. Pulled it back over by placing chain around box blade and loader frame ( where it fastened to tractor) at front of tractor . Pulled it back over with a Kubota 3560.
Did not lose any fluids when tipped over, Checked them and started it back up.
Will try to get more pictures of situation place tomorrow.
I was very fortunate . Now I will go eat a piece of the carrot cake my wife made for me.
Take care. Bob

And a well-deserved piece of carrot cake at that!
