NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Drivers from the Department of Public Works in Charleston County are showing off their skills with a backhoe.

The department’s annual backhoe rodeo is being held on Wednesday in North Charleston. Competitors use the 9-ton backhoes to maneuver various materials quickly through tight spaces.

The finalists advance to the American Public Works Association Regional Backhoe Rodeo and then have a chance to advance to the state championship later this year.
