    A smart operator would have had something heavy anchored to the back of the machine!

    I think I figured out what he was trying to do.....play "submarine". OCD (formerly known as BobCatRon) had a good idea of anchoring. Here is one that is so simple....but then again.....oh well........the guy should have benched in to sit on a flat pad. I figure that would have been cheaper than say, 50k to rebuild?

    Wow... What did they think was going to happen? That's just stupid beyond belief! As long as the guy was ok in the end, I think they got what they deserved. Stupid people...

    Yea I never could figure out what was supposed to happen. It was sure dam deep at the waters edge. It wasn't like it was a really excavator anyway.
