    That rotovater with leveler and bed furrower is barely wider than the tractor. How inattentive does the driver have to be to hit a pole with that small equipment. Try having to watch where the end of your 44 ft wide disk plow is

    He probably was hugging the left side and got his tire close to the power pole, and then made the rookie mistake of turning the front tires to the right hard, which then swings the rear to the left and BANG he gets the pole wedged like that.

    To do this so you don't hook the pole or break your implement, you have to turn the front tires toward the side the obstacle is right when you have your rear tire centered on the pole. Works every time...

    But his wheels are turned hard left and the tractor is turned left.

    The dirt tells a different story... he plowed dirt on the left side of his wheels - he was trying to turn right...

    Then, the pole was damaged enough that he can't get out because the pole is leaning into his space, so he can't back up and he can't go forward, so until someone either unhooks his implements or they pull the pole over, he is stuck.
