Watch: Human grit, heavy machinery, and a game of Jenga with 600 lb blocks


Construction equipment company Caterpillar released a promotional series called Built For It™ Trials that demonstrates the strength and precision of five Cat® machines.

In the following video, the Cat®  320 E, TH514C, 277D, M316D, and 349E Excavators square off in a game of JENGA® where expert heavy machinery operators take turns maneuvering their machines to slide, clamp down on, and lift 600 lb blocks of wood.

The game of JENGA® involves the removal of individual blocks and replacing them at the top. As the game progresses, the base of the structure hollows until the stacked tower collapses with the last operator to stack becoming the loser.
