Default Stuck, now what???

Not sure where to put this at, but I figured it would get more viewing here instead of the Massey area. In the event that I get my tractor stuck bad enough I cant get it out with the loader, where is a good solid attatchment point? I was told use the draw bar, I was told to use the three point hitch arms...I dont know, so I thought I would the pros....anyone?

I would guess the drawbar. But the last time I got my skidsteer so stuck I could not budge it with the bucket, I attached the chain to the bucket and used the curl to move a small amout at a time. I did actually get myself out that way.

I usually hook onto the backblade or bucket to pull cars out of snowbanks and ditches.

Basically, anything that is solid to the rear axles or front of the frame, if the tractor is stuck. The bucket is not a good idea for pulling the tractor out unless it's a straight pull. Even a little off to one side or the other puts an enormous load on the arm pins on the posts, not to mention the cross bar between the arms. It's meant to deal with the forces that the tractor can impart, not what something else has to impart to get the tractor unstuck.

Points built in to pull other things also work well to pull it out. So the 3PH is a decent option and the drawbar is a better option. On mine I added a front 2" receiver at the front frame for nosing trailers into tight spots and for a winch mount. I have a receiver mounted tow loop that I use to pull it or other items with it.
