Man pits sheer driving power of truck against a tree (video)
A Dodge pickup truck pulling down a tree has gone viral.
Shared by ViralHog on August 29, 2015, the video shows a pickup truck taking out a tree in Guilford County.
"Witness the awesome pulling power of Dodge trucks," according to the video description.
In the video, a white truck is seen attached to a tree. The family possibly decided that this tree needed to come down.
The scene is set while everyone waits to watch the tree fall. The children are out of the way at the time.
The truck then revs its engine and starts pulling. However, it seems that the truck hasn’t got enough strength.
Though the rope gets taut, the tree doesn’t move an inch. It just stays put and looks firm in place.
According to Fox 8, while a man was preparing to test the pulling power of his pickup, a woman was recording the event.
