Just a Large Cat Backhoe Surfing a Landslide (VIDEO)


Well I did not know excavators were so good at surfing a landslide!

Amazing. The driver could have stayed in and enjoyed the ride! LOL! Anyhow, getting it back was no doubt harder!

According to the landslide Blog from AGU, it’s a nice slide resulting from excess loading… The backhoe itself.

[quote_box_center]The slide is small, only removing the land on which the excavator is standing. Note that the backhoe remains upright.

The sliding surface is clearly visible at the end of the video. It’s a perfect illustration of the way that a clay-rich soil can form a low friction sliding plane.[/quote_box_center]

Next time I would like to see a flying excavator!
