NO!!  That's about 90% operator!!   I did watch my wifes uncle, who had a bolder  that was too big to move with anything he had.

Dig a hole about 6 ft deep and climb over the side with his bucket with his Gehl Skidloader..

Then push the bolder in the hole and back fill it. He said the frost would never push it back to the surface in his lifetime.

It will be the kid's problem next time!!

Makes you wonder if they ever wrecked any machines loading and unloading before they got it figured out.

Skillful operators, saw a guy load a backhoe loader onto  a regular flatbed trailer a few months ago, no ramps, pretty neat to watch,, was wondering if the railroad texted those guys telling them spare fruit of the looms were required for work today ?

When that counterweight swings back up over your head, it sure does increase the pucker factor, especially like that second video on the platform.  Can't say I've ever loaded / unloaded a machine quite like those guys though!

Well they sure have a talent.

I'd hate to be the mechanic that gets called in, if there is a critical breakdown

in the middle of one of those triple lutz moves.

Be a heck of a time to loose hydraulic!  :anvil_drop:   Mythbusters loaded an excavator into a dump truck last year and did it much the same way as the second vid.

I find it funny, that there are 3 guys wearing safety vests, in the first vid.

You can just imagine the safety inspector, flipping feverishly through his

manual, looking for a violation, and discovering, they haven't written

that paragraph yet. :rolling: Heck, it'd take more than a paragraph. That's a

whole book going on there.

I loaded my MF 50 Backhoe onto the flatbed of a Ford F700, hauled it to S.E. Okla. Unloaded, worked there for a week, loaded back up and came home. NO RAMPS! Used the Hoe hydraulics for it all!

Where I worked, we got a JCB backhoe. The factory demonstrater extended the front bucket and back hoe all the way down lifting the wheels clear of the ground. Then, rolling both buckets, he walked the machine forward.

Walk a 345 across an in-place trench box when it's more than 10 feet down. That's fun. The rail car unloader has extra brackets on the bucket and stabilizers to help keep it in place.

That bucket on the end of the rail car made me nervous! I kept wishing he would roll the bucket flat.

I would like to provide the members here a video of my JD 1026r loading itself onto my JD 10 cart.  However, I like other JD owners are finding out, the 10xx series loaders are having a problem with "FBS"* and until the new loader control valve or blue pill type hydraulic system additive promised for some time now by John Deere is installed there will be no demonstration.

 

 

 

 

 

*FBS = Floppy Bucket Syndrome
