    Skid steer stuntman

    There's a guy from Arizona named Jake Hatch, and he's unusually skilled at operating a skid steer.

    Add in a Guinness World Record for "Longest wheelie by a skid loader", some social media buzz, and a video editing program with an abundance of '90s synthesizer music.

    Now he's the self-styled "Black Sheep Skid", coming to a county fair near you.

    Here's a monster truck rally-style aerial hype video of Black Sheep Skid performing at a rodeo:




    I was surprised to discover that this is the guy who performs in the TwentyTrucks kids' truck videos.




    On the jobsite, where you get to see these skills at work:

    I've run skid-steer quite a bit, but all I can say is WOW that culvert trick is just amazing!

    I have unintentionally had 3 wheels off the ground at once with a JD 644 while the over full bucket was high up in the air Not a fun feeling. One of my pucker moments I don't care to repeat.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use KBS products

    Last time I saw something like that the fool hit the side of my truck while loading. I do like the pressure in the front Tyres(tires): good thing they aren't low profile.

    he had to keep those loggies rollin' : very rowdy. And he wanted to make sure they were suitable as "TRU logs".
