The details we have about this incident are sketchy but from what we can work out this was once a Massey Ferguson 6200-series tractor.
Apparently the driver was happily cruising at about 18mph down a deserted shingle road near Edmonton, Canada when the hydraulics on his loader failed.
What followed is any man’s guess but it looks like cataclysmic mechanical collapse.
The bucket dug in and the loader acted like a giant pry-bar splitting the engine from the transmission and back-end.
The tractor ended up precariously balanced on the loader bucket and grapple, leaving the driver stranded in his cab about 4ft higher than he would usually be.
