So we are just going to sit here and act like at 4:38 the guy didn't have his hands between the structure he was on and over 100 tons of steel dangling in the air......
Com: Seth watson : I just have to ask; Is a trailer THHAT expensive?

Con: Alleson: Excavators (hydraulic) are heavy construction equipment consisting of a boom, dipper (or stick)
bucket and cab on a rotating platform known as the "house".
The house sits atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels.
They are a natural progression from the steam shovels and often mistakenly called power shovels.
All movement and functions of a hydraulic excavator are accomplished through the use of hydraulic fluid,
with hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic motors.
Due to the linear actuation of hydraulic cylinders,
their mode of operation is fundamentally different from cable-operated excavators which use winches and steel ropes to accomplish the movements
