The Kid Should See This

An excavator climbs onto a rail car to unload crushed rock

Watch a 19,480 kg (4,2946 lb) Caterpillar 319D LN hydraulic excavator climb onto a train rail car to unload crushed rock. It may be hard to picture until you see it happen, yet the vehicle operator makes it look pretty simple.

Next: The Erie Steam Shovel Type B in action.
