Mining excavator flattens pickup

The ease with which this mining excavator is able to completely smash this pickup into the ground is nothing short of amazing. It’s the Hulk Smash of heavy equipment and the ultimate display of breakout force. But what’s best about this video is that the operator isn’t quite happy with the first pass and decides to slowly roll the bucket down the length of the truck like a rolling pin. The result looks less like a truck and more like an empty can of soda someone has stepped on.
