    :eek: :eek: Click on this link and see what you think. I just don't know if this is possible or not taking the simple laws of physics into account and as many hours on a backhoe as I have.?? :dizzy:

    Nice moves, but what happens when a hydraulic line bursts?

    If a line bursts during that, the machine has many many problems.

    I cannot believe that it's possible. No way.

    This was posted on Plowsite.com,

    I think it was Chuck Smith that noticed the guides on the loader bucket and the oversize backhoe bucket. (Sharp Eye Chuck S.).

    Might be possible with those changes, I'd like to see a video of the sequence in action.

    I believe it ... I've seen it done on a much smaller scale - on and off a trailer.

    The backhoe bucket has been moved a couple of times. Compare it against the pickup in the background. How do you move the bucket when the whole tractor is in the air? I, too, would like to see a video of it.

    I do know some guys who are incredible heavy equipment operators who might be able to do this. I would still like to see it in person!

    I have seen a video where an excavator (Kobelco, I think) climbs a very, very tall tower. Once at the top the operator extends the machine out away from the tower and spins it around in the air. The purpose of the video was to show how good the hydraulics were on this machine.
