    The bucket looks so far forward on the machine that it wouldn't have enough counterweight with a full bucket.

    I agree, looks awfully light in the rear and it has no load in the bucket??
    Should move a lot of snow though :dizzy:

    LOL, I really hope those first two comments were jokes....I am pretty sure the engineers thought about the weight to lift capacity....

    That's a big loader. Where does something that big go to work? And the question I can't answer or afford how much $$$$. And the building it came out off. A lot of big iron in there. That's a huge a@& building. Wow.

    That loader will spend its life in a mine. I ran a huge loader at an oil refinery once it had a 30yd bucket I could fill a rail car in 3 scoops. This one is over twice that size.

    It will be used at a mine. Usually loading haul trucks.

    It would be fun to use for a day - and try not to wreak something.

    You must need a crane truck just to change teeth on the bucket.

    my question is how do they move that thing to a job site?

    It is usually delivered by rail. And (or) it comes in pieces and assembled on site. The manufacturer will send a crew to attach the cab, put the wheels on, and attach the bucket.

    If it doesn't come on rail, several lowboys and super load.
