    Neat video I would have liked to stay in the cab of the truck while he was unloading;)

    Down is always easy. I would like to watch them load up. How would they get the truck to drop?

    I imagien they could lift the front end of the hoe up with the bucket and then walk it forward on the truck and then slowly lift the bucket to allow the weight of the machine to hold the truck , or build a ramp out of dirt.

    if you think about it, the axles are handling the weight of the hoe while its parked or running down the road....no reason to think that they would not support the entire weight. of truck and hoe....

    thats about as entertaining as watching the guy from greece load a skid loader onto a flatbed truck with no ramps...

    Nicely done, the only part I didn't like is the bystanders are getting too close to the machines.
    One small slip is all it takes, more than once it could've been lights out there, steel machines like that measure in tons.

    They probably use a loading ramp.
