Machines get caught out on beach in bad weather

This video is currently doing the rounds on the machinery forum circuit and also on Facebook, which is where I first came across it.

These Hitachi excavators, Volvo dumptrucks and a Caterpillar wheeled loader appear to have been parked at beach level overnight somewhere in Portugal.

It looks like they have been caught out by an overnight storm and have been swamped by heavy seas, the video depicts the teams efforts to rescue the machines from the beach and the next incoming tide.

 
The Digger blog would like to thank Allistair Cooke for bringing this clip to my attention.
