AutoBlog recently posted an article about a Canadian that took 7 years to dig out his basement with RC construction equipment. Seriously, every single day, woke up, and drove his RC equipment to work downstairs.

There are a few big websites dedicated to the RC truck and construction equipment world. The main one we found is BackyardTrucking.com, where the CAT 345 Excavator resells for $5890. Yowsers. Another website that we visited requested an extra $850 if you wanted the model assembled. Apparently it’s a big deal.
Here are a couple other RC construction and forestry videos that we enjoyed:
