Video: Chinese wheel loader battle
Probably the best internet video we’ve seen in a while is this one showing a wheel loader battle on the streets of China this week, with a group of machines going head-to-head and toppling over.
According to the Xingtang County propaganda office and local media reports the front-end loader fight started when workers from the Jianwen Concrete Plant in the northern Chinese city of Shijiazhuang showed up at the Xinghua Concrete Plant intending to take over the work on a new development project.
Besides the loaders (which almost every commentator called bulldozers), other weapons of choice were knives and pellet guns.
The propaganda office says two Xinghua employees were injured, including a driver shot in the chest with a pellet gun. Six wheel loaders were damaged.
Don’t try this at home, kids.
