FORT ATKINSON, Wis., April 16 (UPI) -- A new video from Caterpillar, “Stack,” shows five of the brand’s construction vehicles playing what is most likely the biggest game of “Jumbo Jenga” in history.

In the video, five Cat machines -- a 320E excavator, TH514C telehandler, 277D compact track loader, M316D wheeled excavator and 349E excavator -- take on a tower made of 27 600-pound wood blocks

The video is a change of pace for the 86-year-old company.

“For me, it’s historic,” Caterpillar field operations manager Chad Cremeens told For Construction Pros. “Within Caterpillar, looking at our conservative history and conservative way of building machines and managing our people and marketing our machines, I think this is historic.”

The video received more than 166,000 YouTube views in less than 20 hours.

Interestingly enough, the actual jenga game took about 28 hours to play and it took place on a playing area larger than two regulation-size NFL football fields.
