    Default Messicks Youtube video... the BX Challenge

    4 of us did a race to see who could install and uninstall a BX25 backhoe and loader the fastest. Results at the link below.

    It would have taken 30 seconds on a Power Trac and I wouldn't have had to get off the tractor.

    Although this video was more for fun, it was the original video that actually taught me how to R&R my BX FEL. BXpanded's was also very helpful.

    Looks like you guys had a lot of fun.

    Though fun, racing through those two tasks looks, to me, like a good way for someone to get their hand or fingers jammed or removed. On the job too.

    I guess I can't fathom why in any way, shape or form a dealer would videotape himself or his employees doing something so stupid as a speed contest with no regard for safety. People putting their bodies between the boom of a backhoe and the frame of the unit, then reaching up and moving the levers in a race is just asinine. Good luck in court if any one of your customers injures themselves working on their backhoe or loader.

    Because it's FUN and people should be responsible for their own actions and not blame a dealer obviously doing something fun.
