Tricked-Out Backhoe Sets a World Record by Hitting 70 Miles Per Hour on a Racetrack

A 1,300 horsepower backhoe tricked out by heavy machinery manufacturer JCB captured the Guinness World Record for fastest backhoe loader by hitting speeds of 70 miles per hour on an Australian racetrack during a run on October 21, 2014.

A supercharged 572 big block Chevrolet V8 is responsible for hurling this monster down the racing track, and it sends all 1300 of its horses into those massive deep-tread tractor tires.
