    Now I like to watch equipment videos once in a while. Even though I have been around heavy equipment my whole life,it's kinda fun watching the HUGE machines.And digging rigs get boring
    This is something else. HUGE and defies gravity(not really but looks like it)

    Yeah? got something better?o_O
    Lets see it:D

    I got to watch a real live version of this very thing as they built the light rail here in Seattle. The line runs about a mile from my house. Almost an identical set up

    Well, it didn't have tires. But it worked the same way at least

    It wouldn't need wheels that close to civilization.I think those in China are out a bit

    These where the only pictures I could find. It really doesn't look all that impressive. It did when you were standing under it.

    I'm wondering,with all those workers walking about that thing,how many get lost in the travel?
    No fall protection on them either.You can tell by how easy they move around
