After years of binging on Top Chef and pinning recipes on Pinterest, chances are you’ll never be as good at preparing a hot dog as Juha-Pekka Perämäki. Granted, you probably aren’t preparing your delicious sausages with an 8.5 ton excavator either.

Perämäki has a bit of a reputation of being a wizard on the controls of an excavator. This year-old video is just one of many stunts he’s pulled while at the controls of expensive (and dangerous) heavy machinery. A year before this awesome bit of machine mastery, Perämäki took to the sticks of another excavator, this time to show off his surgical precision in putting together a Lego playset.
