    i want to know the point of getting the excavator up there. It is very cool but why? It's not like he can unload the car because then he couldn't get out.

    haha they started doin that on rail cars that jumped the tracs full of grain or other things of the like. most of the time they use a regular backhoe without any special outfitting like in the vid. but either way you gotta have some big ass balls to do that.

    I bet the 1st few times climbing the machine onto the rail car has you a bit nervous. Pretty cool though.

    i understand the backhoe but the excavator? it doesnt make sense. like D.todd6 said, once you unload u cant get out. unless he crawls from car to car. start at the front work your way back? idk
