馨香漫天:

I’m skeptical… How did it get up there… It’s inconceivable.

差吥多先生-:

Technology these days is so frightening… You wouldn’t believe it without seeing it with your own eyes.

单身流浪汉记:

I really saw it up there like this digging around, demolishing the building!! Even now I don’t understand how they got it up there. – – !!!!! But I’ve seen this 3 times now. So scary.

stitch2nd:

A bunch of SBs, 100m cranes are everywhere these days, as long as the center of gravity is stable, there isn’t any danger at all, with such a long hydraulic arm. If you don’t understand, don’t make a fuss~

Hi胡健:

I happen to be an excavator operator and those who say it was lifted up there, PS‘d on there, as well as those who say it was assembled up there…here I’m in awe of your imagination, because actually it was driven up there on a path laid in the building itself. How?? Have to see to know!!

糖糖19900624:

It was PS‘d on there!

冬季进行曲:

The Transformers have arrived~~~~

昆虫翅膀:

Taiyuan’s excavators are so niubi.

海之旅sz:

Chinese people are simply intelligent.

西青果:

Incredible~ though this excavator operator sure is being dangerous~

君柳夏:

So incredible/daring! I’m still bewildered, did they use a helicopter to lift it up there?

经典影评:

Risking one’s life to earn money! Pitiful poor people.

What do you think?
