That's not computer generated, it can actually be done. Crazy, isn't it? I'd give it a shot....on a rental backhoe.

I found it.

You can't that with a standard backhoe. The machine is specially modified and they have to back the train up etc.

Here's more from the site:

Here is the question:
Is he someone you would employ to be on your site team?
Is he the answer to your prayers (Mr. Action Man), or
Is he your worst nightmare (Mr. Excessive Risk Taker)
Its been said many times….
There is a fine line between ingenuity and stupidity

something about that bucket on the backhoe looks out of place. The bucket is just as big as the rear wheels????

Looks like special brackets mounted on the bucket and just behind the front axle that somehow lock onto the rail car to keep the machine from tipping. It's definitely not your standard hoe!
