He continued, “I got in front of it and we hooked up. It was a tough pull. The rear tires on the Timberjack were almost bald. We broke three cables before we eventually pulled it to higher ground.”
Though they had cleaned most of the __________ off, a clod of _________ had been missed in the joints of the articulated skidder and had subsequently destroyed the driveshaft.
