Awesome video, but a big WTF on the comments.

Oh, you guys haven't seen the one where he has one glove on and dances like Michael Jackson, or the ones where he holds his locomotives up from his crotch like it is his unit.  :imwithstupid:

Big time publicity stunt for Liebherr.  That machine had major modifications for that demonstration.  Still was cool.

The only modifications could be additional steel reinforcement, but still, the work was all done by hydraulics. The standard boom can do the same thing.

Were to start.  OK.  First the cylinder arrangement is for a front shovel.  The smallest front shovel Lebherr makes is the R 954.  That is a 54 metric ton class excavator which means between 54 and 64 mt. (for those that don't know 1 metric ton = 2,200 lbs compared to 1 U.S. ton = 2,000 lbs)  I operate 15, 30 and 40 mt excavators all the time.  That thing is no bigger than a 15 mt machine.  To small for a front shovel.  The first arm sticking up from the machine is the boom.  The arm connected to the end of the boom is the dipper.  The boom cylinders are in the same spot but the dipper cylinder is on top the boom on excavators not under the boom.  The distance between were the dipper cylinder and the boom attach to the dipper is farther apart than all the excavators of that size which would give it more leverage to increase its lifting capacity.  The cylinders under the dipper would be for the bucket.  That flat plate on the end of the dipper is were the bucket would be.  On an excavator the cylinders are on top the dipper for protection and the direction the most force needs to be applied.  Those cylinders exert more force extending than retracting.  Also excavators normally have only 1 bucket cylinder.  The spacing between were the dipper and the cylinders attach to that plate are more than twice the distance apart than any of Liebherr's excavators or front shovels have.  One added thing.  There is 2 heavy duty hooks on the undercarriage for holding the excavator from falling off the tower.  Not a stock item at all.  Of course they conveniently painted over the model numbers that are normally painted or are stickers on the sides.

That's the most obvious stuff anyway.  Still was a cool publicity stunt.

That said, imagine if a CAT 329 tried it... (Thats probably the biggest hoe I've ever operated, that I can remember off hand)
