Crafty Construction Workers Turn Excavator into Amusement Ride on Lunch Break


If you’re looking for a good thrill, there are a ton of things you could do. You could go on an incredibly fast rollercoaster with huge drops, find a bridge to go bungee jumping off of, or do some base jumping off a cliff. But this guy has a much more unique way of getting a good adrenaline rush, and all he needed to make it happen was a harness, a Hitachi excavator, a helmet for safety, and a lot of courage (or disregard for his life).


Excavators and Heavy Equipment are Still Dangerous

You will see that there are a lot of dangers involved in this crazy stunt. First of all, you’d have to have a lot of trust in the guy operating the excavator. It doesn’t help that there are a bunch of huge rocks lying around that the guy could smash into if his buddy lowered the excavator too far. You’d also need to trust that your harness wouldn’t snap as you’re flipping around. Of course, you’d probably have similar concerns about that second one if you were bungee jumping.


These guys might have to start charging admission for this ride. They would want to make sure the people who try it sign a waiver first though. This is probably riskier than going on a ride at an amusement park, scuba diving, or going on a cruise ship, all of which may require you to sign a liability waiver. This guy is such a risk taker that I’m surprised he actually wore a helmet, which is something else you would want to make sure to equip people with if you wanted to make a little side business out of this.
