Forest Harvester Rodeo Looks Fun and Dangerous

Recommended Posts


Who knew sitting on a log could be such a blast?


There are many ways to cut a tree, but few more efficient than a harvester. Capable of uprooting a forest tree and ripping off its branches, the machines are crucial to the logging industry. Rarely are thought of as fun, until a Finnish TV show got their hands on one for a rodeo.

The Dudesons, a Finnish prank collective that has worked with Johnny Knoxville's Jackass, got themselves set up with a Ponsse Scorpion harvester. Their ground rules were simple: Stay on the longest. Their saddle was screwed into the log, and they had safety ropes for the falls, so while it might not be safe, it is at least not as dangerous as it could be.

If Diggerland XL, the theme park based around the idea of being a construction worker, is looking for new attractions, they may have just gotten a helpful hint from Finland.
