A 56-year-old man has been rescued after his tractor became submerged in floodwaters at Mole Creek on Monday.
Emergency services were called to the scene on private property about 2.30pm, after the man attempted to cross a wide section of the Mersey River.
Acting Sergeant Rockliff of Deloraine Police said the man was attempting to feed deer located on the other side of the river, when his tractor stalled.
"The driver was forced to wait in his enclosed cabin until rescued," Acting Sergeant Rockliff said.
"Luckily the water level didn't rise any further and another tractor with a fork lift attachment was utilised to reach and pluck the driver from the submerged tractor two hours later."

The rescue was carried out by emergency service personnel from Tasmania Police, Ambulance Tasmania, the Mole Creek Volunteer Fire Brigade and Deloraine and Kentish State Emergency Services.
Acting Sergeant Rockliff said the incident was a timely reminder for people not to attempt to cross flood waters, even on formed roads.
"In addition, several people have become stuck in the Central Highlands trying to drive through snow in two wheel drive vehicles when the roads have been closed to non- four wheel drive vehicles," he said.
