    Did the excavator operator go down with his "ship"?

    As if bringing an excavator out wasn't interesting enough?

    It's good they were able to reclaim it and get it out of the ground. I just hope they put up signs around that mudpit forbidding heavy equipment from getting back in it! Also, I liked how they had the tires attached to the cables/chains so if they broke, the tires would absorb the backlash.

    If you go onto youtube and do some searching around you will find more videos showing a lot of other heavy equipment that has been "entombed" and abandoned in the mud or water.
    Nothing could be finer than riding my JD790 in South Carolina!!

    Just think, in a couple million years they would be wrapped in amber and discovered by some alien race.

    Alien 1: my analyser says Caterpillar is a large bug. These creatures had metal bugs?
    Alien 2: Maybe the bugs took over, this thing is huge.

    This was entertaining. From what it looked like was that the dozers were being assisted by a couple of excavators in the pull but there also looked like a motorized winch was in the mix as well. I wish they showed this part a little more

    So what was the machine doing when it got stuck to begin with?
