Guy Digs Up Basement Using R/C Scaled Models, Must Not Be Married

by Conner Flynn

Excavating a basement is not all that unusual, but doing it with miniature scale models of construction equipment is something I have never heard of before. But it is awesome. Why not do it with R/C equipment? Sounds like fun. Oh yeah, that’s right. Because all I would be doing is digging my own grave, because my wife would kill me.

That’s because it has taken Joe 7 years to do it… so far. For those of you who like numbers, that’s an average annual rate of 8 to 9 cubic feet using just R/C tractors and trucks. You might call him dedicated – or even obsessed.

He even transports the excavator on an R/C truck to the basement, unloads it, digs and uses other trucks to transfer the dirt up to the ground through a spiral ramp. There’s even a miniature rock crusher in on the action! This is an amazing undertaking to say the least.

You can see a little bit of the project in the video above, or you can check out many more videos up on Joe’s Youtube channel.

    This is an untapped potential. NASA should send excavation robots to the Moon and let this guy hollow out a base for us. He clearly has the patience to do it.

    Well, we’ve been in the excavation business for years now, but there’s very few full scaled R/C excavating equipment in use. It would be a good idea to use such skill and patience on a full scaled machine. For those who need excavating equipment, visit http://www.creativeexcavating.com
