    Hi all

    Land Rover been stuck for 3 months. No joke. Long story. Luckily my winch on it is broken (clap hands) and I have no one who can come and help who has a winch.

    Anyone on here want a trip out to help the old girl out?

    Let me know please

    Which road or byway is it on?
    Is it a legal route?
    You say it has been stuck for 3 months?

    What do you mean stuck? Is it bogged, something broken, anything else?

    Local farmer with a tractor might oblige for beer money.
    Are you sure there is anything left?
    The vultures normally pick a carcase clean fairly quickly.

    It is on private land. Yes there is access.

    It is bogged down.

    Cannot get a tractor there.

    Oh, and it has no power for reverse, head gasket is gone. Got a new engine waiting to be put in since September (96k miles allegedly)

    If you can't get a 4wd tractor there, I doubt if a landrover will get anywhere near it.
    Might be best to wait until the ground dries out in Spring.

    No, you can get access via a land rover. Might have to winch up a bank though. Tractor cant get up the bank. There is trees to winch to. If my winch was working I would have been ok. Basically I got stranded rescuing someone else.

    A 4wd tractor will get up anywhere a land rover will go, and then some.
    Do you know the landowner whose land the vehicle is on?
