    i was kind of disappointed when i saw the video b/c then you see that there is a locking mechanism for both the plate at the end of the stick and two arms lock to the tower where a backfill blade would be attached.

    takes all the fun out of it!

    Yes sir, I had seen that some time ago. It's a very impressive exhibition. On a closer look you'll notice the purpose built boom and stick. I wonder if they have any safety valving in the hydraulic cylinders as a fail safe for a possible hose/line failure?

    did anybody else notice that he just had the regular seat belt on? I would hope they would beef up the cab and seatbelts incase the machine did fall. Still thats pretty crazy
