Video: How to open beer with an excavator

It’s Friday, and we’re celebrating with a beer … well, actually with two videos showing pretty clever operators using excavators to open bottles of beer.


In the video above, an operator in Queensland opens a bottle of XXXX Gold using a bucket with modified teeth. (We assume he’s a Queenslander, as no one but banana-benders drink Goldies!*)

He opens an Esky, carries the bottle to a specially made wooden holder, opens it and carries it to the cab.

Impressive, but we reckon the German operator in the video below might just take the cake (sorry … the beer). He uses the edge of bucket on a Kubota mini-excavator to pop the top off a bottle just standing on the ground — no props needed.
