Wet snow is the worst because as soon as you roll onto it you compact it down and turn it to ice. It doesn't take much to get stuck in that stuff. I have got stuck 4 times this year in at jobs in the snow, I just leave my tow hooks in for the winter time. I have used plywood, cardboard, sand and my chains to get unstuck bit sometimes you're just stuck.

Pretty much. I guy tried to help me and we got it to move a little, but not much. According to the tower I was the 5th person to do it this week haha.

Got any kitty litter? They suggest for us to carry kitty litter, for traction in case we get stuck.

Also, don't worry about what other people say, you just do your best, and forget them. You'll always have those that want to rag on you because you're Swift. Those people just aren't worth your time.

Just keep on trucking buddy and don't let it get you down. 😊

If you're dealing with just one set of drives spinning and you are desperate, you can use a blanket as well wadded up a little bit. If you find yourself on just black ice on a smooth surface then spread the blanket out. You may very well ruin your blanket but it can make a big difference. If you are out in the country and no one will care, you could use small branches from trees. Evergreens would be best with all the needles still on.

Every professional started out as a beginner . I think people with experience forget that sometimes.I'm sure they have gotten stuck also. Or worse.
