A group of Canadian hockey fans are excited about the start of the season, but when the game is cancelled en route, they jokingly claim they are ‘crushed’. Their afternoon ruined, they reach out to the nearest piece of heavy construction equipment to vent their frustration.
The mood of the crowd has changed. As the Caterpillar D11T charges across the lot it dwarfs the Chevy pickup.
The fans laugh as the D11T’s 634 kWs of power easily shoves the truck backwards across the yard. A cleverly placed second camera shows the CAT D11T’s tracks start to smash against the bonnet as the operator manoeuvres the doomed Chevy into position.
The CAT D11T pauses for a moment, considering mercy.
THE CROWD GOES WILD
The CAT D11T turns slightly and roars over the top of the pickup, crushing one side as the hockey fans cheer, finally seeing the carnage they have been waiting for all off-season.
Not satisfied, the operator then backs over the truck over and over again. In the top corner we can see the feed from the on board camera, giving a bird’s eye view of the devastation.
This video is a bit of fun, but also a blunt reminder of just how valuable heavy machinery is when it comes to tackling the toughest jobs.
