Attempt to load excavator onto truck goes horribly wrong

Though we’ve seen a fair share of loading mishaps occur even when a ramp is present, this operator’s attempt to side saddle his excavator underscores the world of pain you can avoid by simply loading a machine properly.

Beyond the absence of a ramp, it’s doubtful this excavator even completely fits on to the bed of this small truck. In less than a second, this machine went from loaded to unloaded.
