    There is a video of it somewhere on the InterWeb, it was a promotion for Liebherr's hydraulic system.

    As for the pic.

    A dealer told me about this a few years back. It was a demo at conexpo or something. the operator got a new machine for his skills or stupidity for this stunt.

    Notice it has two cylinders on "bucket". Pretty impressive stunt.

    That machine looks like it has a shovel boom on it.

    Wow, this is probably the craziest thing you can do with an excavator!!! He's even rotating the cabin in the air... Still, quite dumb if you ask me.
