Imagine being the operator who had to climb out of this! Dark Roasted Blend has a collection of photos from incidents where heavy machinery goes wrong. Link

Yes, they use much bigger equipment to move the smaller stuff. I've seen an excavator used to flip a dump druck upright after a load shift rolled it, and i've seen cranes used to keep small equipment in the air at night, presumably as a theft deterrent.

Emil, I wonder things like that, too. In the post, there's a picture of a steam shovel up on top of a chimney that was lifted up by a huge crane. So I'd imagine the big equipment is moved by even bigger equipment!
