doesnt really look that hard considering he had a lock to hold his track to keep them from sliding off. none the less cool but i can run a trac hoe and i think i could accomplish this.

Once I saw the 1st story climb I started watching closer. They are using a quick couple to hold the end of the stick on the tower and then I saw the hooks holding the machine on the tower. Could I and most operators out there do this, Yes. But the real question is are we dumb enough too. I'm not you have to have a lot of faith in your machine and the structure thats holding you up thats for sure.

Guys I doubt this is to show operator talent, but rather demonstrate the sheer hydraulic power this thing has. Pretty amazing if you ask me.

I think i could do it, but i don't think i have faith enough in the tower and the equipment. If one thing fails you are done.
