Total destruction photos

Unread postAuthor: Technician1002 » Thu Apr 15, 2010 4:54 pm

I posted this in the non spud gun section because... it's not spud gun stuff. I did try to use the marshmallow cannon with the TB barrel to toss bottled water against this to see if I could punch any holes in it, but that toy was just too underpowered to punch holes. I did bounce a bottle of water off the roof, up and over the house. Sorry no pics. Was not running the camera at that time.

Onto the photos.
A house with a bad case of dry rot needs to be torn down. The owner is a logger. The broken wood can be sent to a chipper to be used for fuel in a co-gen plant, but needs the metal stripped out to prevent damage to the chipper (nails are ok). Borrowing some logging equipment, a loader. Then the fun begins.

My job was to pull out the metal wire, electrical boxes, plumbing, etc. After a few dumpster loads, I got a turn. :D I didn't take many photos while running it. I got about an hour in, then climbed back down to resume picking metal and take more photos. The photos from the cab are while the owner is down below picking out metal, so the machine was shut off for safety. I took pictures at that time. Notice the cab is even with the second story. Look at the size of the claw picking up the toilet. This thing is huge. The claw is about 5 feet tall. When dropped on the roof, it simply punches holes in the roof. The logger was great with it and made me look like a rank amateur (I am) at this. He managed to pick up the toilet without crushing it or even chipping it. Too bad the tank got broken earlier by falling debris. It was a good toilet.

The floor was ripped up the next day. Due to my work schedule this last phase didn't include me.

This is the owner's house. They will build a new house. It was fun. I have a bunch of video I shot too. I'll have to see if I can get any good frames captured from the video of me running it. I tended to shake it a little when swinging it over to the dumpster so I dropped lots of stuff on the way over. The owner could run it smooth as an arm and hand picking up stuff. That is a claw game on steroids. :lol:

In pic 10, you can see the owner of the house sorting out some stuff that has to come out. That is when I stopped to take pictures. When he started up again, he took out the shed.

This is what happens to YOUR house when you don't read Spudfile's rules.
