Flying Takeuchi takes part in extreme demolition

This health and safety nightmare video has been doing the rounds for some time now, but it was posted on my Facebook wall last night by Digger Blog reader Ray Bird.

It features a Takeuchi mini excavator somewhere in Germany, which is suspended high in the air by a crane, beneath a set of four legged chains, whilst performing hammer work! The machine doesn't even have a fully enclosed cab and the operator isn't even wearing a seatbelt and can clearly be seen standing up to take a better view at the job in hand. Its truly shocking and I can hardly bear to watch it. If there was ever an accident waiting to happen this is it!
