Watch 300 Amish Men Move a Huge Barn With Strength Alone

A group of Amish men take teamwork to the next level.

Who said you need a power operated tool to move a huge, wood barn.  A group of Amish men shows how it's done manually, with a little teamwork, and it is awesome. Who needs machinery or any sort of tools when 300 of your closest friends can come together and lift everything with you. Not much fully known about the situation, however, a similar video popped up a few years, begging the question, how often does this happen? 

For some reason that's not clear in this YouTube video, about a hundred Amish men were able to haul a huge red barn a few feet. The video was aptly titled: "How Amish move a barn." 

In the 34 second clip, you can see teamwork at its best. After a call to "take ahold" and a short count down, the men crouch down and pick up the massive red barn. They were able to move the barn several feet in roughly 30 seconds. Pretty impressive and not surprising since it's part of their normal way of life. We prefer cranes over here, however seeing people come together to accomplish a heroic feat is a staple of engineering. Complex mechanical tools are not always the solution.
