Have You Ever Seen A 28,000 Pound Construction Vehicle Pop A Wheelie? Check This Out.

The Caterpillar 950 wheel loader is one of the biggest and most important construction vehicles on any job site. Wheel loaders (or front loaders) are able to move 10,000 lbs. of dirt in just one load of their massive buckets. That’s a lot of shoveling!

With that much weight at the front of the vehicle it creates a fulcrum, or a tipping point, over the front wheels. What this means is, when you’re driving forward with the bucket elevated then hit the brakes and lower the bucket, it’s actually possible to make the 28,000 pound wheel loader pop a wheelie.

And if you’re crazy enough to try it (and the boss isn’t looking), you can pop a wheelie with a wheel loader just like the guy in the video below.
