I found this a bit hard to believe; one that any machine could do this and still survive, and two...any man would have the skill and the guts to operate it.

These machines are designed to do this exact kind of stuff. But I agree, the operator does need to have the guts to do it.

It would have been interesting to see how that piece of equipment got back out. The operator must have vast experience with equipment. Just watching made my guts hurt. I saw as he crossed the bridge - he was trailing straps of some sort. Perhaps to help get out if the equipment wasn't capable.

In any case - glad it was him and not me.

Yeaaa, he's tethered, it's really not that big a deal.

There's loggers who operate machinery tethered, in the mountains all the time, you get use to it...

It would be a bad day for a mechanic if the machine broke down while in that position.

Two things I'd most like to know is what the control setup looks like for that thing, and what's on the price tag for a machine like that?

Not sure I'd want one for general use, but it is an interesting piece of equipment that looks to be highly specialized for specific applications. ..which usually means interesting control layouts and high cost of buying and maintaining. ..usually
