No. and that isn't the case in this story. The article indicates that the implement caught overhead lines and pulled them off the pole.

It's not a Minnesota bullfight, it's Ol'e!

Ole, Lena, and Sven were lost in the North woods and were becoming desperate, having run out of food several days ago. It was winter, the snow was deep, their situation was looking very bleak. When Ole dug down into the snow to look for something to eat , he found an old lamp and upon rubbing it to get the snow off, a genie came out.
The genie says, "I am the great genie of the North and I can grant each of you one wish.
Ole says, "I vish I vas back on my farm." Poof, Ole was gone.
Lena quickly says, "I vish I vas back on da farm wit Ole."
Poof, Lena was gone.
Sven was sitting there looking sad and the genie finally says, "What is your wish?".
Sven says, "Gee, I'm really lonely. I vish Ole and Lena vas back here with me".

CSB:
I'm housesitting for a week. The neighbors will be home from camping and I make sure the kitchen is all spotless, dishes done, laundry all picked up and the entire household is good to go. I take a shower, and as I'm shaving [11AM], the power goes out.  Comes back on. Goes out again, comes back on. I'm thinking some fool hit a transformer and it's dying, resetting and then it's going out. Sure enough. Within 4 minutes it goes out for good.  The family shows up, looking to do laundry and take showers. Nope. We all ride into town to  find out what happened, and stopping at the gas station we are told that this fellow hit the wires with his hay rake, then the line caused the tractor fire, which in turn burned the tires on the tractor and  those flames, in turn took the grid out. And it will be fixed @ 3 PM. My question was anyone hurt was interrupted by how soon will the power be back on by Ms. Sandyvag that I had been housesitting for.  At 3: 40 it came back on. In the meantime, the entire town was like the walking dead.  Me, I went home and took a nap.
End CSB.

For the past month PECO has had a "temporary" line running down my street, on the ground in the gutter. It then goes up a tree, across the street, and down into a manhole.

I am surprised no geniuses have attempted to steal the metal in the line.

No, it didn't. How did a rake attached to the end of a tractor catch overhead lines?????

The tractor pulls the rake. The rake pulls the line. The line snaps the pole. The tractor catches fire. Hi, Ho, the dairy, Oh, the farmer in the dell

I guess you could look at the pictures in the article and notice the rake is folded upwards to make it narrow enough for road travel.  The larger the tractor, the wider the rake it can pull.  I might be wrong, but that rake looks ~40-50' wide when in use.

And when folded up, they are within legal clearance limits.  The wire had to have been drooping and in an illegal state. If you see drooping wires, call it in so that it can get fixed before shiat like this or worse happens.
