Liebherr excavator car wash

This one’s pretty simple. Bunch of guys with some time and what looks to be a Liebherr R9400 mining excavator on their hands decide to have a little fun with a useless car.

Then again, when you consider that this 385-ton machine’s 28.8 cubic-yard bucket capacity holds 5,816 gallons of water, we guess the results are what you’d expect. By the way, that’s like dropping the deep end of a swimming pool on top of a car. Watch the video below.
