    I can tell you that that is a lot easier( esp a machine around 5 ton) than trying to load onto a trailer with ramps that is on unlevel ground.

    The video was predictable when I saw the guy didn't ease off and gradually boom down as he was nearing the break over point I don't care if you are side loading or loading from the rear once you have enough track on the hauler you boom down and get the other end of the tracks up in the air level with the platform. He had to use his bucket to press down on the bed to get his tracks started then swing around to push himself up until the tracks could get enough purchase to pull himself on he must have known once the weight was over center he wold loose the advantage of 3 point contact .

    I saw a guy in a poorly serviced machine of need of new hoses (I could hear & see the hydraulic mist as the bucket was curled etc). he tried doing that at the water treatment where he was operating, and THUD as more fluid went airborne. When I could hear the loss of fluid over my 5 ft midmount mower, he was either blind & deaf or just plain stupid: the latter of course.
