This guy mentions some things that I never knew, and I drove these things for years.

I do!  Spent a lot of time slingloading those things underneath my CH-47 Chinook back in the day.

As a medic, I was responsible for safety lectures. I got a guy to lift up an old car to 100 feet with his Huey and drop it nose first so the troops could see the results of a 55 mph crash. Never been around a Chinook except one time when I flew in a small plane to an airport where they had a National Guard base full of them. They are pretty impressive.

The biggest load I ever carried was a D-5 Bulldozer at just under 26,000 lbs, the limit of carrying capacity of that aircraft.  One could tell it was heavy, because when it lifted the dozer off the ground, you can see the side skin of the helicopter wrinkle under the load.  It took about 90% of the aircraft's power to lift it.
