Problem Solving: Truck Carrying Excavator Finds Clever Way To Make It Up An Icy Hill

April 20, 2018


This is a video from St-Jerome, Quebec, Canada, of a truck hauling an excavator finding a clever way to make it up an otherwise impassible icy hill by using the excavator's bucket to help push the truck forward, apparently ripping up big pieces of asphalt in the process. They also hit the power lines a couple times. Smart. Personally, I would have just left the truck parked in the middle of the road until spring and hiked to the nearest bar, but that's just me and we all have our own ways of dealing with problems.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Landon P, who agrees they should have just seen if they'd get more traction driving through yards.

  • Yes, you got up the hill but probably destroyed the blacktop in doing so leaving a series of 5, 2" wide divots all the way up the hill from that bucket.

    In Pennsylvania they could get fined for not properly securing the hydraulics during transport.

  • Meh

    Was anyone else waiting for it to roll down eventually?

    Pretty sure "You told us to do what we gotta do" has come up several times after this incident.
