    Ha- well, it's the toughest damn sobriety test I ever saw and it looks like he passed. (unless he was asked to put the golfball in the middle of the stack)

    WOW. I've worked around some great operators on jobsites over the past 25+ yrs,including my ex-bro in law who was an poophead otherwise.But the guy in the video is the best I ever seen. Nerves of steel.That's the guy I want lowering the concrete forms near me as I stand on that scaffold plank.

    Can he open them with that thing?

    Pretty cool. It is amazing how good the modern hydraulic controls are. I spent some time in the cab of a 300 ton hydraulic crane with a friend of mine. He was able to place 30,000 lbs of steel within fractions of an inch on the roof of and 8 story building.

    When they tore down the power plant at my college they brought in a long stick hoe with sheers on the end. The operator stipped wiring from inside conduit by grabbing the wire with the sheers. I was thoroughly impressed. Maybe this is the same operator????
