Years ago, in our town, they were excavating a pipe line. The truck driver was standing on the running board watching as a backhoe was loading him. As the operator passed the bucket over the man, a hydraulic line broke, closing the bucket and decapitating the man.

Is this video safe?

I'd like to see that attempted with an old, well worn machine (actually I wouldn't!!). I know the ones I've tried were old, well worn tractor style back hoes. You'd have to keep the RPMs up to get any power, then fight the herky-jerky hydraulics because of the higher RPMs!:drunkie: That's what you get with an amateur at the controls.

Cool!

Back in the day at the Oswego steam plant I saw an operator pick up a dime with the bucket on a Hein Werner C-12.

It's a stunt and with stunts anything can happen.Looks a lot safer than someone trying to show their knife throwing skills by seeing how close they can lob one at you and still not hit you.

My younger brother won a years's rental on a 750 Deere dozer doing a contest very similar to that ,but with a plastic spoon and egg and bells on sticks:thThumbsU
He could do what that guy did dis-robing with his log truck , he is an incredible operator! Being in R&D for many years for Wain-Roy I have seen many many contests and very few that were truely AWSOME! That fellow running that Bobcat is one of the AWSOME ones!:thThumbsU:trink39:
