If you are talking about the ag machine in New Zealand that was a slightly different situation. He used the 'big twist and heave' t/o method. That means he opened the throttle (well ABOVE the red section on the tacho) and heaved the collective up until it's 'light on the skids' so they can do a cushion creep t/o. It's quite a standard procedure in NZ ag circles and quite nessecary when overloading by 200-300 lbs is standard practice. Only in NZ...
