Backhoes, sometimes referred to as rear or back actors, are pieces of heavy excavating equipment. They are often found on construction sites and generally weigh anywhere from 13,000-25,000 pounds. Moving one from one location to the other usually requires ramps, trucks and possibly even cranes depending on the scenario.
This backhoe operator, however, was having none of it. When he needed to get to a spot that was a pretty steep fall below him (for heavy equipment at least), he decided not to opt for outside help and got himself down using the power of his machinery and some expert handling. This could have easily been a disaster, but clearly this guy knows what he's doing with that thing.
