Acting as a sort of snow plow, only the with the scoop in the front of the vehicle angled down instead of upward, the video gives viewers a glimpse of how the Baybuster is used to flip vehicles into the air upon impact during the filming of an action sequence involving Autobot team member Bumblebee.
