Yes. That is snow in the background. No. This is not a recent photo. Thank God! I grabbed this photo back in March and forgot about it until now. Kobelco and Komatsu excavators of all shapes and sizes.
This equipment was participating in the demolition of Kennedy Square. A former public housing complex in downtown Syracuse. You may recall a Komatsu PCL600LC was used to slowly dismantle two multistory structures. Over the months I accumulated plenty of footage of the demolition. Now that the project is nearing a close it feels right to clean out the archives and publish what remains. Now about this Cat 345BL. A stocky looking machine.
Jumping back to more current times we have a few of the machines from above working to sort scrap and feed a concrete crusher.
Hopefully in the near future I will be able to grab footage of new construction on this very land courtesy of an ever expanding SUNY Upstate.
