There appears to be a growing trend on the plant and machinery social media pages, of simply posting a photo with nothing more than a brief line of text. Personally, I prefer to bring a bit of background information to any photos I publish, but in this instance, I feel this is another one of those shots that does all the talking for itself. This shot was initially posted on The Hard Hat Networks Twitter account and shows a Caterpillar E Series excavator being lowered into a deep ravine to commence dredging operations in a river upstream from a dam. Just take a look at the drop behind the machine; one would imagine the operator would need nerves of steel to work in that location!
The Digger Blog thanks the Hard Hat Network for the use of this photo, and don’t forget if any readers have plant and machinery related photos which might be of interest to your fellow readers, please send them into me without delay.
