Extreme downhill skiing with a New Holland excavator

This video was posted on our Facebook page by regular reader Jack Westwood, and with the downhill skiing season upon us, I thought it would be a good one to share with you all.

The clip features a New Holland E70B 7 ton class excavator somewhere in Finland, and as you would expect from our Scandinavian cousins, the machine is fully loaded with toys, including an Indexator RT30 Rototilt and a re-handling grapple. In true downhill skiing form, the operator takes a good run up before turning the undercarriage sideways on to attain maximum speed!

Boys and their toys I guess, but one has to ask the question ... why?
