And the tractor has better bridge deck clearance than the cat!

Okay that was impressive. I think if I was the driver I would have jumped off, walked to the car, drive to the store and purchase a newspaper for the jobs hiring section.

The cat floated off way before the tractor went under. The driver cocked it up. Lucky for the snorkels.

Actually to me the 200litre drums between the trailer and the bridgedeck had massive bouyancy and were jammed under the boat. Therefore I think the driver was very cool headed. Very entertaining to watch.

Re: Now I Want this....

As a Jim Bob Redneck, I can tell you that tractor was stock, what you guys are calling a snorkel is the air filter pre-cleaner. I wouldn't want to do that to my tractor as it would get water in the hydraulic fluid, surprised we didn't see a huge amount of water from the radiator fan, makes me think this may have gone as planned and the belt had been removed.
