    Come on Chris, that is so sweet. I think that guy is smart for doing that, he obviously can operate a backhoe really well. Only thing though is getting down, I bet thats a whole lot harder... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    thats quite a talented operator and I don't care what you say about it. I've seen that many times, and thats the first time I've seen someone say its a bad thing.

    no its not, someone stole those pictures and took the quality way down, the ones I've seen before are much better quality and you can tell they aren't a chop just a talented operator. I've seen operators do some tricky things with a backhoe and a loader bucket, including this just like that, just not on such a great scale.

    Why is he up there? Taking one scoop at a time that way or just showing off or what? Two guys with shovels would be faster...

    I agree with Tim. The bucket is at the wrong angle and looks like its cutting thru the car. Also the back hoe appears to be in the same position yet the loader is in a different spot. I dont buy it...sorry /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I thought I was a pretty good operator but thats one brave man. One wrong move and it's going to be a wild ride down!! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I see some sort of 'guides' attached to his bucket, but it doesn't appear to be a chop from what I can see. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    I think it is a chop. Look at where the bucket is in relation to the white ford, and the guy in the white. The 5th and 6th picure kinda show something funny. It is a good chop though, even got the power lines, and the ladder rack in there.

    i dont think its a chop, look at the guy in white, he moves his head, lookin up, what would have been cut out, for the guy to be lookin at, in front of, and above the train car?
