Strapping yourself to a giant machine and then letting it have its way with you while you’re on a board on a lake is a great way to make yourself forget that the hands of a clock are always turning. Just let the excavator whip you back and forth and around. Be at the mercy of the machines. Try tricks. Get dizzy. Fall.
Don’t ask me why there needs to be lettuce in a hot dog or what kind of dark red sauce they’re squirting (*gasp* if it’s ketchup), but it’s still cutely impressive to use a giant machine like an excavator to make something as silly as a hot dog. The dexterity of the giant claw puts our little human fingers to shame.
Apparently, the meteor that hit Chelyabinsk in last February transformed the locals into the most badass living creatures on Earth. Need to fire your cigarette? No problem, a 30 ton Hitachi caterpillar excavator can do the trick for you:
It's quite simple really, the car gets completely destroyed, screwed and mangled in every which way possible. The TR-150 construction drill completely eats the car alive to the point where it can no longer drill it anymore, it has to smash and pulverize it. Using construction tools for destruction is a beautiful…
Somewhere in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam on the Saigon River floats the most insane, makeshift boat I've ever seen. Seriously. It looks like a floating concrete block being rowed by a construction excavator. Huh?
Whether rolling like a modern-day Caligula in Caesar's Palace or wearing a saddle at the Mustang Ranch, Las Vegas has your fantasy for sale. And if heavy machinery gets you hot, Vegas' newest attraction has you covered.
Boys will be boys? A 12-year-old and 9-year-old hopped into an excavator, drove it around a strip mining site and destroyed anything that got in their way. It got pretty bad. They flipped over a bulldozer, smashed windows and sprayed fire extinguishers at whatever they could find. The total damage the two boys caused…
Let's say you want to dig yourself up a little garden or terrorize the local rodentia. Or both! Well, meet the EC280 Excavator. It's a tiny little monster with a kickass demo soundtrack. Everything about this is ridiculous and wonderful.
A 3-year-old New Zealand girl, bored in the early hours of the morning, hopped on her parents' computer and, via auto-logins, managed to buy a used mechanical excavation machine for around $15,000.
Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you: This is a hydraulic excavator-a machine that weights 47,554 to 76,500 pounds-climbing a column using its front arm. Seriously, after hours searching in the web, I really don't know where this came from or when it was taken. I don't even know if it's real, and I'm sure that a…
Think of it this way: excavators similar to that weigh around 35-40 tons. I wouldn't want to be putting even more downward pressure on that sucker while floating on a barge. Personal safety aside, hope this guy has good insurance, because an excavator can cost more than $300K.
