    Not a Cat

    This is a Hitachi, for those not so well versed.

    This is a Hitachi 50T excavator, basically this is a digger. This is one of the largest machines that can be transported via a truck without being dismantled. Well almost, little bits and pieces have to be taken off.

    It loads 50t Capacity trucks, which I have some photos of, in 6 cycles, in other words, he fills the bucket and empties it into the truck roughly 6 times. That is 50T +

    Love all that stuff Scott,

    I never fail to be amazed at just how delicate those beasts can be at times also. One of my favourite shows on the telly is Time team which is about archeological digs in Britain and to watch them skim just a very thin controlled layer of dirt off an ancient stone walls is like some sort of mechanical ballet.

    I knew it wasn't cat :P that's why I said it.


    Arm capacity only 2.9t seems low for a 50t ex though?

    Not that I would EVER recomend this, but . . . . .

    This is delicate, maybe not quite safe for work, but it is titled, how to undress a woman with an excavator.

    Thanks Scott,

    By the look of the stout chap in the cab of the 'machina' she might have been the first cracker sort he disrobed in quite a while.

    But it begs the question: Why does television have to rely on commentary to describe something we are seeing - especially prevalent on Euro-trash television.

    Which lens used on this one? Looks to me like a 11-22 , but could be wrong :)

    Just the way it does the sky , or is a polariser involved?

    Actually did nearly everything wrong here but I was limited with time and options.

    It was shot with the 14-54mm and no polarizer.

    I used save for web so no exif but it will show that it was shot about midday. Managed to get the sun behind me and I think it turned out pretty well.

    Nice shot I love photographing things like this.

    They never complain and no one notices if you lean a tripod on them :lol:

    In science fiction stories we had robots doing our hard work, these are the real robots they do the work of 50 to 100 men and only need one person to operate them.

    not if you work in an office ;)

    and timberland boots are WAY worse (in construction, comfort, looks and durability and double the price)

    strangely enough my woodworld ones lasted me 10 years and fell apart on the inside before the sole wore out

    my macks are still the best all rounders, could go a non squeeky raw leather tongue tho :p


    * - note im comparing to specialist steel capped safety brands =p

    Re Boots I love my Blundstones but for some reason the soles on the last pair of steel caps melted into a gooey black mass after not being worn for a while.

    I did once buy a pair of Rivers boots ( non steel caps ) to have them fall apart after 2 months. When I called and complained I was told they were NOT work boots and not designed to be worn every day. they were a "Dress boot" and intended to only be worn on saturday night !!!! :shock:
