Guy filming should do his part and pull the back down

It only exceeds the weight capacity by 100 tons, it's nothing.

How are big blocks like this supposed to be transported? With a counterweight to stop the back of the forklift from flying up? Or are they just broken up into smaller pieces?

Why is he literally standing underneath it, you gonna die

I mean it gives an opportunity for the guys to power wash the bottom of it and check for anything wrong with it

TIL - loaders are four wheel drive!

Just have a couple (dozen) guys hang off the back to counterbalance it

Pretty sure that's [here](https://www.coloradostonequarries.com/) New people bought the quarry a few years ago. The previous owners would cut blocks and sell them later. This meant they had a "stock yard" that was stacked several of these blocks tall. It was a good time to run around on them as a kid. Hide and seek was great. I wonder how many peoples kitchen counters I've peed on?

I used to work for a company that built excavating equipment. People would come in with destroyed forks or buckets on their front end loader from doing shit like this and expect warranty. I know it’s just a dumb post on Reddit but that’s hundreds of thousands of dollars in equipment haha

Its fine.. he is in a Volvo.

It’s fine, Volvo’s are safe cars

Those tires are pretty cool

When I started running front end loaders i did something like this on an unfamiliar loader. If the bucket was all the way filled, it would lift the loader up. Once or twice I dropped the ass end full speed. It sucks. It really sucks.

I've been a furniture mover for 2 years. Moving a marble table top that seats 4 to 6+ people takes anywhere from 4 to 6+ people having hands on it. A regular solid wood table of similar size takes 2 strong guys and sometimes 1 to keep eyes/be back up. Marble is one of the things I hate moving. I think I read somewhere a cubic inch of marble is 1 lb.

Just for scale, that machine is about 55,000 kgs and can take a 34,000kg static load.

MSHA has just been notified.
15 Feb 2018 00:05 - +6
Anyone who has driven forklift has done this. This is just on a way bigger scale!
15 Feb 2018 00:10 - +5
Nah man that shit happens all the time with those things
14 Feb 2018 23:33 - +5
TIL that front loaders can twerk...

I'm still impressed they find giant cuts of this and make statues and what not out of it

Can anyone estimate the weight of that block?
14 Feb 2018 23:37 - +3
lift with the legs not the back

A Volvo L350F weights about 60 tons so that rock has to be close in weight.

That guy treats that loader like a skid steer.
