Call me uncultured, but I’ve never in my life heard of the German town of Geilenkirchen. After watching the above video though, I’ve since learned that it’s apparently a place where they do epic off-roading activities like tug of wars. And, I’ve been known to enjoy a good old fashioned tug of war battle a time or two.

For this match-up, we’ve got a Caterpillar D8 vs. 20 Toyota Land Cruisers. Check it out!

While we don’t get an exact side-by-side look at what the competitors were working with power-wise, here’s a rough look at the competing power outputs, according to the Four Wheeler Network.

Per FourWheeler.com:

Although the power that the 1955-1980 Toyota Land Cruisers produced individually was not all that impressive, 90-125 hp respectively, when working together this group produced a combined power output somewhere between 1800 – 2500 hp. The heavy equipment Caterpillar was building in the 1960-1980s wasn’t powerful by today’s standards, but assuming this D8 dozer was of the same era as the Land Cruisers it would have between 300 – 335 available horsepower.

Now, obviously, Toyota Land Cruisers are not known for their ridiculous under-the-hood specs or towing capabilities. That said, there were 20 of them, and the Caterpillar D8 dozer wasn’t exactly built yesterday. So, it was something of a lopsided match-up from the jump.

With all that in mind, the Caterpillar put up one hell of a fight. I feel like this dozer operator has definitely been in a few tug of war face-offs in his day. Best two out of three, and the D8 probably would’ve at least taken one. So, who’s up for a rematch? Someone needs to make it happen.
