Every car enthusiast is delighted when seeing a mad wheelie done by cars at a crazy drag race. So far, we have encountered many wheelies in which mad trucks were demonstrating their incredible power and skills. Nevertheless, the video that you are going to watch will show you one completely different kind of wheelie performed by mighty backhoe, which is able to pass ¼ mile in just 17 seconds with 82 mph.
This mind-blowing event took place at Rocky Mountain Nationals, in Edmonton, Canada in 2007.
The famous backhoe that you will see on the video, a.k.a. JCB GT is originally built by JCB Construction Equipment Australia, an Australian company for agricultural and constructional equipment, for the purpose of demonstrating wheelies at the racing events.
By reaching speed of 72.58 mph/ 116.82 km/h, this dragster backhoe was announced by Guinness as the world’s fastest backhoe. Enjoy this incredible performance.
