That’s one way to get upriver!

I was amazed to find this video clip of a barge on a Vietnamese river – with a unique means of propulsion.

I wonder whether rust caused by deliberate immersion of an excavator is covered under the manufacturer’s warranty?



  1. Rust shouldn't be too bad as long as they grease it every once in a while. They are gonna take out the swing motor eventually though.

  2. I saw the same thing on the show about gold mining on the Bering Sea running on Nat Geo or Discovery or something. And it was a MUCH bigger excavator.
