Default Not woodworking, but impressive machine operating

I saw the second one before I saw the first one, so not quite as impressed by the first one as I would have been otherwise. And the third one is just plain impressive.

Very Impressive, Theo! Definitely not jobs to give to a newbie!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

This one made me realise how powerful the hydraulics are on these machines.

When you just see them digging ditches, you don't appreciate.

I was just wondering how many hours experience you would have to have before they would let you attempt any of those!

Undressing girls, or pulling m/cs out of canals?

OK Theo I admit it, I sometimes get distracted watching earth moving videos and some of them are impressive, these I have seen, I closed my eyes while she was stripped, well they were almost closed. Neville

james this one I had not seen, excavators are powerful machines aren't they? My favorite videos are the big Cat D10R's, In one video I saw a big bulldozer of an unknown type roll over and over head over heels down a cliff face, some of the places they take them and then they have to drag them out again, I guess that like routers then the professionals know what they can and cannot do with them, I would not want to take any of the machines where they seem happy to take them.

I thought it was funny how many people commented that the unloading of the backhoe from the train car was "redneck". I have spent a lot of time on and around heavy equipment. I have known many people (I am not one of them) that could and would have done the same thing and faster. Fun to watch but not "rednecky" just how things get done sometimes. haha
