View Full Version : Skid steer demo's two story house

Here's a video I found of a cat skid steer, which I think is under the operation of Ron, knocking down a two story townhouse that was destroyed in a fire here in Raleigh Last year. Started by one cigarette 26 homes total were completely destroyed.

Not too bright.

I would have liked to see a more time lapse video, did the skid do all the work? The way that skid backed up, think he was a little nervous?

Most of the homes were demoed using excavators

Hard to believe but some of the houses were so new that they were still for sale:dizzy:

Being dumb would have meant using the truck to pull it down.

I've seen that before, definetly not smart.. I bet Ron was crapping his pants right about the time the roof came down! :laugh:

its amazing what fire will do to a place. I was at a potential job yesterday in which the homeowners may want us to transplant a few heirloom trees to their new home, since their old on burned down.

No wonder I refuse to build with wood. My home is 100% concrete and steel, no death trap attic for me! You should have seen what hurricane Andrew did to those wood frame structures in 1992! in a fire 100 pounds of wood is like 1 gallon of gasoline. Remember, I run my emergency generator with wood.

we have used a 941b to do demo with but on tall stuff we just wraped a big cable around it and went driving away then cleaned up the mess
