I'm not sure if this has been posted on here but I spoke to the guy that's supposed to get this thing out. Story has it the guy lost control and it drove into the lake up at south cove while they were installing pipe mats. The guy bailed as it entered the water and the loader continued to roll and stopped 170' from shore at 70' deep of water. He said the loader weighs 40k pounds and they have 100k pounds of air bags and (2) 1 3/4" cables that are going to get tied to 2 bigger loaders to pull it out. They said they were going to dive it Thursday and pull it Friday. Should be cool to watch.
