How To Load And Unload A Backhoe Into A Dumptruck.


Here's a video a friend sent to me. I thought I would share it. If your trailer was unavailable, you could still haul it. There might be an issue with DOT on height and length with the loader bucket on the cab guard and the hoe on the back. Oh well......


+ YouTube Video

I'm curious how much backhoe experience he had before he did this?

It was his first day on the job and the boss said "take that dumptruck and pick up the backhoe at this address".

So, this guy abuses his truck and backhoe for the mere purpose of making a video. Some ppl have no common sense.

I'll go along with you on the truck abuse, but one good session in a stony area will put a heckuva lot more abuse on a hoe than that. At least if I'm running it.

Watched my grandfather do this off of a flat-bed trailer once, about 4.0' to 5.0' from ground level. Machine was a Ford 3500. Never had the wuevos or need to try it myself...
