Right. It's more an illustration of technique than a testimonial for
Just thinking out loud, the technique would seemingly work for large riding
lawnmowers (you might have to jack up the truck's front end - really high),
lowboy trailers laden with dead bodies, and, of course, this method is often
how you get boats off trailers.
Since I saw this yesterday, I have successfully employed the method in
discharging the 50gal drums of jalapeno peppers from my weekly trip to Sam's
I plan to take advantage of the new method this week-end when I move my
mother-in-law's stuff to a storage shed (she ran off with a vacuum cleaner
salesman to Beaumont).
re: I wonder if they got it up there the same way?
Is that a question or a statement?
There's another video showing them loading an excavator onto a
different kind of flatbed. They put the bucket on the flatbed to lift
the tracks, drove forward until the front of the excavator was on the
bed, then spun the bucket to the back and lifted until the tracks were
level. Then they just drove right on the rest of the way.
Bigger truck, but the front never left the ground.
Topper to that is one in South America somewhere (saw it several years
ago) where they put it up on top of a train of RR cars and crawl along
unloading the cars with it it. Wish I had kept the link.
Scary just to watch it getting up on top of the first one.
Right. But, I thought, this is "alt.home.repair" not
"alt.freeway.construction" or "alt.dam.building".
Someone might consider the technique should they rent a Bobcat.
The rental place may load the sucker with a fork lift. Now, when you get it
home to help with installing the towel rack, how the heck do you get it off
