Lets see your operating skills

I know we have some great operators on this forum. So its time to show off your skills! Show a video, a picture or even just a story. It can even be about a sticky situation you got into, but you got out of it. Any piece of equipment is acceptable. I'll start out with some videos of my own.

I got bored at lunch one day:

You must have wiped Volvo out of their prize money last year because they were only giving away free music downloads. haha. They also didn't have the backhoe challenge. But the guy ended up mailing me a big box of Volvo paraphernalia for setting the all time record.

Thanks again. I can get a bunch of 1 ft by 1 ft scrap wood blocks do you think stacking them with a 4 in 1 bucket would be a good way to learn? Already have pallet forks and am going to try the cinder blocks in the spring. Post some more when you get a chance.
