Hydraulic Excavator Used to Climb Column Leaves Us Completely Baffled

Illustration for article titled Hydraulic Excavator Used to Climb Column Leaves Us Completely Baffled

Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you: This is a hydraulic excavator-a machine that weights 47,554 to 76,500 pounds-climbing a column using its front arm. Seriously, after hours searching in the web, I really don't know where this came from or when it was taken. I don't even know if it's real, and I'm sure that a hundred people will probably exclaim: "Photoshop!" But it looks real and I want to know what is going on here and how is this possible at all.

Looks like the column was built specifically for that purpose. Perhaps the platforms are magnetic?
