Yes but how many bananas is this?
Amazing! It could be used to frame a small house.
There’s a spiral of 50+ spinning blades that press on the rock with tonnes of force, chipping as they go. Video if you’d like:
So what part actually grinds? Is it just the slots at the very edge?
Boring machines are so interesting and yet somehow kinda terrifying
Amazing! The part in the picture doesn't look that powerful, but all the machinery behind it shows just how powerful it is.
Damn it, just looking at this makes me want to play Minecraft.
I've been around a few heavies like these and some other types when I was a kid. It's really hard to imagine the scale.
You can watch pavement and other solid surfaces dip down and spring back up when they drive by. As if they're driving on foam rubber or something.
It’s nice to finally see one without those mule balls hanging from under the trunk.
How do I get to drive this??
I have the engine from one of those in my '04 Dodge Ram with towing mirrors
I was really nervous because my eyes saw his shadow as missing bags and I couldn't figure out how it hadn't collapsed yet.
I wish I could stack bags of sugar that cleanly.
Anyone have pictures of that factory hanging off the back end of the crane?? That's super impressive!
It's not exceptionally tall, just big. Get a taller crane, build with small parts and mind the balance.
The question that came to my mind is: How do they built a crane like that, at that era? They used a bigger crane? If so, how do they built that bigger crane?
I'm surprised it didn't explode from the sheer weight of his balls
I like to think that’s how he flew into the field
Googled it for the lazy. Container ship engine. This has 9, but available with up to 14 cylinders. The 14 cylinders is 44ft tall, 87ft long, and has 107,390hp.
The crankcase is almost as crazy as the crank. Is it one piece of aluminum? What aluminum producer can make a casting that big without internal defects? How the hell do you machine it? Do tolerances increase with the size of the motor, so this has like 15cm tolerances?
Wiki page says between 22 and 120rpm. 1810 liter displacement per cylinder with a stroke of over 8 feet, burns 6.5 ounces of fuel each cycle. The pistons weigh in at 5.5 tons and that crank weighs in at 300 tons.
The craziest number is the 5,608,310 ft lb of torque at 102 rpm.
Jesus that's massive
It’s smaller than I thought
Is this where ED-E gets his design from in FNV?
there’s a great song about sputnik by the band ‘public service broadcasting’ from their album ‘the race for space’, called ‘sputnik’, check it out https://open.spotify.com/track/4EhQrGzqi8k24qWIJuG5CH?si=0zKA82mpR9Sy_ZrN2og-MA
