VIDEO: Volvo ECR50D ex­ca­va­tor re­view Evarn Covich re­cently got the chance to test out the Volvo ECR50D 5-tonne ex­ca­va­tor at CJD Equip­ment’s Bris­bane testing yard. The small dig­ger “felt very good to op­er­ate with ex­cel­lent speed, bulk­ing and breakout abil­ity (just like the brochure said), as well as pre­ci­sion per­for­mance and sta­bil­ity mak­ing for an all-round well­bal­anced unit”, Evarn says.

Check out this video for the most rad­i­cal mod of a Cat 287C compact track loader! Made by a US Cat dealer, the Rook is a tac­ti­cal ar­moured ve­hi­cle de­signed to let law en­force­ment of­fi­cers deal with pretty much any worst-case sce­nario, from hostage crises and bar­ri­caded bad guys to ri­ots and nat­u­ral emer­gen­cies.

VIDEO: Just han­gin’ around, mate In a move that would prob­a­bly give Australian OH&S reg­u­la­tors heart pal­pi­ta­tions, in this video an op­er­a­tor de­mol­ishes a build­ing with a mini-ex­ca­va­tor – while sus­pended on a chain from a crane. We liked one com­ment that sug­gested get­ting rid of the op­er­a­tor and us­ing the dig­ger as a wrecking ball!
