Back up the truck and dump them in the driveway? How hard can that be?

Those are bales of cotton (going to Slaton Co-op Gin as noted on the side of the truck) and what he's doing is a lot less impressive when you realize he's using a live-bed floor in the box (essentially it's got conveyor belts running through it, similar to a walking-bed floor which uses oscillating bars). Fun to watch, sure, but not all that amazing.

Getting marshmallows from the farm to the table takes many steps.

I always wondered how Twinkies were made.

If all four of them will fit in the truck on their sides, why was there a need to dump them out and reload them standing up?

My guess would be that it decreases the chances of the bales rolling around in transit as well as decreasing spillage.

it may also be that when he drops at the gin, they will then be on their sides again, so they can be rolled.

I drive through there about twice a year, usually on the way to Colorado or New Mexico.
They are in some serious tornado country. One year we drove through and one had just come through. Missed most of the town, some part you couldn't tell.

i'd like to see him try that at night.

Is the live bed tied to the transmission so that it's matched to ground speed?

It was kind of freaky to see the bales move inside the container in sync with the ground.

Because its a demonstration video and they are demonstrating.

So Lisa Lampannelli missed a shipment from her tampon supplier?

Good point, it would be bad if the truck were going around a curve and the load shifted

I assume that the truck driver accomplishes this task by pushing the "jump down / turn around" button on his dashboard

/oh, lawdy

Weird, I replied to this last night from my iPod but it must not have gone through. There's 2 types, one is fixed speed, the other is variable speed via controller. Neither of which are synced to the ground speed. This is probably a fixed speed unit as they're more common and way cheaper. In such a case, all the driver has to do is figure out what speed the conveyor moves at and make sure he runs the truck at the same speed. This might sound hard but when you figure this guy has probably loaded and unloaded thousands of bales it's pretty simple; once he figures out the speed on the first couple bales he'd know to go that speed the rest of the truck's life when doing this, and it'd probably be safe to presume he could jump in any other truck in their fleet and do the same because they're probably all right around the same speed.
