VIDEO: Can Santa decorate a Christmas tree with a mini excavator?

December 19, 2022

Santa has five minutes to put as many decorations as he can on a 7-foot Christmas tree. How will it look when he’s finished? To find out, watch this video from Rent1 Equipment’s YouTube channel.

Santa’s new sleigh is a John Deere 35G mini excavator. Using nothing but the excavator’s arm and the bucket attachment with a hydraulic thumb, Santa has to take decorations off the ground and put them onto the Christmas tree. Will he have enough time to place the star on top? Watch to the end to see for yourself!

This video was made by the crew at Seattle-based Rent1 Equipment Rentals to celebrate the holiday season. From everyone at Rent1 - and CONEXPO-CON/AGG 365 - Happy Holidays to all!
