[VIDEO] Construction Workers Try to Demolish Wall with Forklift, Things End Badly

I’m sure everyone that has ever worked construction has used the wrong tool for a specific job at some point in their career.  Most of those times, however, the end result isn’t going to be so obviously bad that it makes you scratch your head.

Motorized construction equipment, like forklifts, are invaluable tools, but they’re not good for demolition, nor are they built for continuous impacts. The guys in the video disagreed and attempted to knock down a short concrete wall by backing into it repeatedly with their forklift.

It did successfully knock down the wall, but they failed to account for the multiple foot drop off on the other side of the wall.  Enjoy.
