Upside-Down Dragline


Faaaaark.

We've had some big bench failures here at Mining Mayhem over the years, but this is the undisputed winner.

Fifty internet points for the best caption for this photo.

"And then Robbie Knievel jumped in the cab and pushed me out of the seat like this! He was mumbling something about there not being a guiness book record for longest jump in a dragline machine!

"Honestly Boss I hardly touched it. I just gave it a little push... like this..."

That's not what I meant when I said to turn it over!
