Great!  Too bad the vimeo server is so horrible at delivering the content.

   Thank you for posting ...enjoyed it.  Here is one of a skidder trying to work steep terrain. I don't think anyone was hurt ..but makes you aware of what can happen.

The filmer probably didn't think it's gonna turn into skidder flipping video. Shoudda kept that load a little closer to the ground in that terrain.
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

He shoulda goosed it when the hind started jack knifing to get back in front of the load.
 
You oughta see the flips and flops that are drove outta at WOT by comp buggies.  Rig doing cartwheels down a hill and guys kareen out of it on the rev limiter, back onto the rubber and at it again.  Google WEROCK or bounty hill
