Dozer towing truck towing excavator

We can’t figure exactly how these guys thought this system would work out, but what they’ve accomplished has to be the highest number of bad ideas ever caught on tape. With the huge load of that mining excavator sinking that tiny trailer and the truck doing little to remedy the situation, they bring in the dozer to give them all a little help. Spoiler: Nothing moves but the truck’s front end. Then they forget to use the breaks. Watch the video below.

Editor’s Note: There’s what sounds like a bit of coarse language at the end so adjust your speakers accordingly.
