Video: it’s human digger swingball!
Construction workers of the world: you’ve been using your tracked excavators all wrong.
Turns out that beyond digging massive great holes, knocking down derelict buildings and smashing up wrecked old cars, there’s a better use for a dirty great digger. Yup, it’s a mobile theme-park ride.
