So You Think You’ve Got a Big Tool?
Filed under: Construction — Tags: — nedpelger

We love our tools in construction. We always want to have the right tool for the job, knowing how much better everything goes. When it comes to heavy equipment, the bigger the more impressive.

Lex sent me this photo of a tunnel drilling rig, which staggers the imagination.

Look at that man crawling on the rocks, he appears to be an action figure. They are completing the NEAT Gotthard Base Tunnel that crosses the Alps in Switzerland. The huge construction project should complete in May 2016 and will cut the travel time dramatically from Zurich to Milan. The sketch below fascinates me as well.
