Those Excavators are some mean dudes. We had one digging a pit out behind our plant. the pit was 15 ft deep and tapered up to a 4 ft drop off. He just drove it off that 4 foot drop off and went down in the hole to get some concrete blocks that fell into the hole. The hole was full of water and he ended up getting stuck down there. We bent the crap out of our 20 ton loader trying to get him out. We had the chain hooked to the bucket and it just bent the bucket lip over like a tin can, thats probably 1/2" thick steel in that area. The loader didn't let me down it got him out. I was getting a little nervous about that cable letting go.
