Boss Level: Watch This Forklift Operator Perform An Awesome Trick In A Behemoth Machine
One of the first motorized vehicles I can ever remember steering and then driving is a forklift. My dad has been in the pallet and box business for about 40 years and it was always a highlight as a kid to visit the shop and sit on his lap while moved bundles of wood around. When I got old enough to reach the pedals I as allowed to cruise the yard and move stuff around. It was great fun and I earned my junior forklift operator badge. The guy in this video has his pro-level forklift operator badge and he earned it!
Flipping a coin onto the forks of the machine as it is laying on the ground has been a staple party trick for forklift operators for years but this guy takes it up about 52 notches. For starters he does the job with a massive machine that is used to lift steel shipping containers up. Secondly he not only flips the coin but the also loads that sucker into the neck of a plastic bottle.
For me it isn’t so much the physical nature of doing the job but the skill it takes to do all of this from behind the wheel of the lift. He’s not getting out 50 times and checking stuff, he is gently manipulating the controls to make the magic happen. His reaction once he makes the “deposit” is pretty awesome.
This guy is a total hero!
