But on the other hand, why not relieve some of the dumper’s load first? And we have to wonder if there wasn’t a bulldozer around to simply tow this thing out.
Regardless, by the end of the video when the A30 is worming itself out of a very deep hole, we felt a sense of relief. Great video and we loved the dual-angle view he set up. Watch the video below and tell us what you think. How would you have gone about rescuing this truck?
