NC DOT: Backhoe Competition, State Roadeo 2013

Posted by Content Coordinator on Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Operating heavy construction equipment is no easy task. It takes skill and precision. Each year, NCDOT puts the talents of its top maintenance crews to the test at the state Roadeo. The friendly competition has many categories, including the backhoe contest, which requires the operator to scoop up five golf balls using a spoon-like attachment on the bucket, and place each one in a pipe. This video shows just how tough it can be to complete the exercise with no misses. Think you could do it? –NCDOTcommunications on YouTube.
