Alright now we're going to load a load of dirt from the stockpile to the truck and things to keep in mind as you go ahead to the pile, curl your bucket up, get a good amount of dirt in your bucket. Back up with your bucket, now load. As you approach your truck raise up higher to go into the truck. You do not want to drive around with a bucket up high. In rough areas it's possible of an overturn of the backhoe and that would not be good. So we're going to demonstrate loading the truck from the stockpile and we'll see how it goes. As you can see dirt is rough, rocky and what you do not want to do is roll the bucket back to a point that as you go up the dirt falls back on the machine. So you have to keep the bucket tilted in a way that will protect the machine.
