Scraper Save: Watch The Operator Of This Caterpillar Scraper Get Himself Into And Out Of Trouble

Now this is an operator right here! You are going to see the guy who is in charge of this Caterpillar scraper get himself in a bit of a spot when it seems that the back end was on an earthen embankment that gave way and got the whole thing all crossed up. As the operator tries to get the whole rig back on top of the pile the whole thing seems to be getting worse. He then decides to drive down the embankment with the front of the scraper to align the whole works. At first we were like, “NOOOOOOOOOO,” when we saw this and then the guy’s experience showed through because he obviously had a plan the whole time that we could not understand.

Once the whole rig is aligned, he gets heavy on the throttle and all becomes right with the world. To us, this takes some skill ad instinct. It also takes the experience to know that the whole machine is not going to dump over on its side and potentially hurt the guy running it. There had to have been a couple of pucker moments during this one but all’s well that ends well and as long as the boss does not have to field crummy phone call about a wrecked machine and everyone goes home in one piece, it’s a win.
