I must admit that's pretty impressive, amazingly stupid and dangerous, but still impressive

It's amazing the things a good backhoe driver can do.

Is that for real??
If something were to go wrong, I would love to see how they explain that to the insurance company!

Hey, um, guys...
Pull the handle on the bottom of the car and see what happens...

Just an idea...

At first glance, it appeared to me that he was trying to fill his bucket with whatever is in that rail car. My thought: There has to be an easier way to do that !

I guess if operating this backhoe doesn't pan out, he's got a good shot at the circus.

I'd bet those guys in the foreground are standing WAY to close for comfort .
