Your a bad digger driver
1.5 hrs. How much did you make? Maybe I am in the wrong business.
I know nothing about these machines or how to operate them, BUT, This guy sure makes it look easy..Very good operator
I'm kinda surprised I watched this entire thing. I've seen Hollywood moves that aren't this exciting. Keep up the excellent work.
You are a skilled operator! You developed a plan and executed it efficiently.
You can tell this is legit by the ratio of people actually working to people standing around with their hands in their pockets
Break out the lawn chairs and pop corn. This is the best show in town.
I'm in love
@letsdig18 How much did this cost them? Pin me?? Thanks!
and I thought that I was an alright excavator operator, this guy is on another level.
Your control of the machine is outstanding 👍👍👍
Are those mats built with something like used railroad ties? They look like the right size.
@35:34 ... how romantic ❤️
28:06 the second I realized he could've dug his self out it just maybe taken a couple days at least I know I could've
This film saved my day. don't know how it ended up in my recommended, but so enjoyable to see experienced people work!!
Ok 7:32 I'm thinking i know its neat to watch but they probably want to move from there. 10:56 I see the ground move blow them so I know they felt it. 13:13 they finally move
I'm cold on a forklift like he is on this excavator
Heartwarming when they hold their shovels together
Excavating the excavator... this is some Inception crao going on here
at 24:31 "dont know why they haven't already done that" well just look at their faces and situation the machines in. its pretty obvious why . they stupid lmao
I hope they billed the idiot that buried it. Must have cost a fortune to hire another to dig it out, plus all the manpower.....
Some of your mats need some attention lol.
Should’ve called Yoda.
You make it look so easy operating that excavator nice work
I think it was an awesome recovery and the benefits to the soil. Just think, turning over that much soil is a good thing
This is why PLclip exists man I'm so happy.
That was fun! Diesel, hydraulics, and heavy equipment! These are a few of my favorite things! Great operator skills, my man! That was some serious zen going on!
There's a mat! 10' above the tracks 🤦♂️
The most wholesome video on PLclip?
At 2:00, there’s that little groan from the pump when the hydraulics really get under pressure. I’ve been once next to a hardline that decided to split in such circumstances. That sound made my neck hair stand up for many months after… it all looks like nothing much at that point but it takes insane forces (vs human scale) to move those mats like that. Would take a bunch of stout people with ropes and harnesses to lift one of those a few feet up. Good work all around! The operator is one with the machine - quite a show really. It looks so damn easy: means you know it’s not something you learn overnight.
I'm sure anyone can spot the owner of the rental company.
Lol. Eating an Egg McMuffin!
It must be pretty embarrassing for the original operator to see someone else drive out to his machine for the rescue.
how in the fu..... did they do.... you know what nevermind.
Not sure how I got here . Glad I stayed. Such skill.
totally mesmerized by that!
I'm sure the recovery was not fun, nor getting the excavator stuck was, but watching skilled operators working their machines is.
I love to watch these operators, they’re so smooth it’s like the track hoe is an extension of their arm. Pure skill. 😬
I don't feel so bad now
Lmao! Really? Tell us, what did you do? We wanna hear!
Me... asking 3600 people why dislike this video Them... we don't know
Landowner is a total donkey. Digger far too small for that pond and no pumps to drain the water .....
Great! This driver really has a talent)
I’ve operated heavy equipment for 35 years and have made my fair share of boneheaded moves, but damn! I’ve stuck about everything you can stick, but damn! I mean, damn man, at some point you have to realize you’re stuck and stop trying to get yourself out. That’s how you end up in a situation like this. I have to admit though, it’s much more entertaining when it’s someone else that sticks one.
How do u manage to fuck up that badly
This is beyond skill. You are truly one with your machine
I'm not sure where you're at but that looks like it would be really good topsoil. Does that have sand mixed in with it?
Man, I miss working with excavators and skid steers. Those were the days lol
What were they even trying to do at that pond
$10000.00 operator abouse
Oh crap, lol thats the only words I had when I saw how bad it was buried.
Why am I here youtube?
I wonder what was the price tag was on that?
LETSDIG18: Did you get the job to finish the Pond??
That man is an operating sum buck!!!!!
Wow you are good Chris I really enjoyed this video 🇺🇲💯
My only complaint is no tunes!
"Im surgical with this b@#$*" -Alonzo Harris
Hey kids, this is what professional looks like. Take note. Nice work, sir. 👍
Typical 'construction site' where 1 guy is working and umpteen guys are watching.
That made me dizzy
Maybe they were trying to get alittle extra digging depth.
I got a bit of motion sickness but I’m sure I’ll get used to it. Awesome content
How does one charge on these type of jobs, by hour? Or what
brilliance, knowledge, IQ (I hate IQ) and just intelligence is so misinterpreted these days. This man has about 4 of them at least :)... Who ever below mentioned spatial awareness - Good for you!
Excellent job! And quick too!
I got a 86 fiero and a couple ropes...I could got that out no issue.
Got a big old bucket scoopin all the time, diggin holes in the ground wondering what I'll find. Im an excavator see you laterrrr
I don't know how I ran across this video, but this guy has amazing skills. I watched it at 1.75x speed and the scoop seemed like his arm and hand he had so much control.
oddly satisfying to watch
How much would a rescue like this cost, and would the guy who rented the machine have to pay or would it come under insurance? Great rescue, great machine and this guy is a good operator, very smooth.
When someone asks ( why is it so expensive for your service) show them the one stuck in there and the one aka you that got it out..You pay for the years of experience the operator has.
you get a raise great job!
Growing up my dad had a excavator service, I rember him dealing with these kind of "issues" from time to time, micro managing your moves when they called you to get the job done, and always having to have a good attorney by the phone, and yes a handful of law suits to get people to pay
Great job well done
Made it looks easy
It was so cute the way they held buckets
Apparently I have too much time on my hands,,,,watched the whole thing
Hope the guy spent the extra $20 on the insurance
Ahern is really a decent rental company. Most of the equipment we get from them is in good shape.
man that guy is good with his machine!
Holy shit, 7.3 million views in a month? How?
Woooow mind blown, how does someone get something stuck that deep!!
Wow, quality work guys. What ever they pay you it's not enough.
I'm calling you if I need help hiding a body.
Man I want to do this. It is awesome the way the machine is just an extension of yourself.
I cant believe this is only your 2nd day. Wow
This is some weird ass archeology.
Pretty good for your second day... lol!
what a fucking boss......... straight tff up!
Enjoyed this very much! Does this mean I’m not normal?
Dudes got skills with the shovel
WOW!! Years of practice... What an expert!!
Awesome viewing, amazing skills, no rushing, steady working less is more
just like Tonka Trucks in the sand pit.
1.5 hours to do the actual recovery, plus transit to and from site, say an hour total, plus setup and pack up time, another 1.5 hours. Total billed time=4 hours @$not cheap. Plus whatever the rental company puts ontop to bill the renter.
