  • How To Load a Bobcat on a Dump Truck
  • Here's the story:

    So look. We’ve got this drain system at the house that’s collapsed and it has to be dug out and replaced. About 80’ long, 3’ underground.

    I call this guy who advertises that he does excavation. I ask him if he has a backhoe. He says “I do everything with a bobcat”.

    He shows up with the bobcat in the back of his dump truck instead of on a trailer!
    I tell him I don’t have a loading dock or ramp or anything of the sort and there’s nothing like that in the neighborhood.

    He says “Don’t worry about it. I can unload it myself”.

    Well, he lifts the truck bed about half way and brings the bobcat out onto the groundNever seen that done before. Pretty amazing. Then he gets the digging done in about four hours.

    Then I ask him how he’s going to get that machine back in the truck. He says, “Don’t worry about it. I can load it myself". I'm thinking this guy is crazy then decide to videotape this because it will surely go viral – if he lives.

    See video in attachment.

  • That reminds me of the backhoe climbing on and off a rail car.

  • I wonder, at those extremes, about the engine oil pump cavitating.
