Seeing as those are hopper cars with belly dump, wouldn't it be easier to simply excavate an overpass - so the car can be trundled over - the belly chutes opened and the contents dump into the area below or into a truck parked underneath?

sure you could do that but the "simple exacavation" is going to cost $$$ instead of the couple thousand he invested in the steel for the front bucket, that's of course assuming he paid for it. Probably scrap and didn't cost him anything.

As far as the safety goes, overall it doesn't really appear to be all that unsafe to me. His only real concern other than mechanical failures is his center of gravity, as long as he doesn't adjust the hoe to the left or right its going to remain balanced.
