The hoses are hydraulics from the other tractor that IS ACTUALLY RUNNING in the video allowing the burried tractor to utilize its cylinders to move it.    The tractor that is the subject of the video is not running

ya beat me bh  :wave:

 

I wouldn't want to be standing there holding the hoses.   If the hose breaks that boiling hot fluid would be shooting out of there at around 2500 PSI!!!!   Be no different than a bullet hitting flesh.  :wallbanging:

The engine doesn't look like it's running. My guess is the hoses are running to another piece of equipment and his hydraulics are being run from that. That machine will never be the same.

Google hydraulic fluid injection if you want to see some really scary stuff. I teach my techs to be very careful and never feel for a hydro leak with their hands. A piece of cardboard works well for that.

we do that with equipment underground in the coal mine.  Some of our stuff is hydraulic "tram".  We hook it up to a battery powered machine, plumb the hydraulic PTO into the machine that doesn't have power, and piggy back them where we need to take them.  Since power is hard to establish underground, and requires a 100,000 dollar plus box, and expensive cables, we do this when we need to move equipment from areas with no power to areas with power. 

 

Either that or we just drag the SOB where we need it.  Not as safe or as easy...and usually breaks stuff.

Just trying to get a feel for his ability, I thought he did a great job getting it out but I'm not a operating engineer.
