Taking a break from interviews next week for Memorial Day, but expect more machine videos as I work through a backlog!
I’m always looking for interesting people to interview, have anyone in mind?
The Week in Review
I actually really liked this machine—including the satisfying sound it makes—but disappointingly not many of you shared the sentiment. It was this week’s worst performing post 🥺
I went crazy trying to identify this helicopter. It turned out to be a Leonardo Lynx, but with a configuration of side windows and landing gear that I can’t seem to find anywhere else. A previous post shows a modernized Lynx executing an insane ship landing.
This locomotive was previously posted under the SM48 name; the original designation was the TEM2 (and the locomotive in this post is marked TEM2).
I should have clarified that the tractor is made by John Deere—the harvesting system is the RoboMax.
In NYC I noticed many ambulances were built on Ford Super Duties instead of vans. I wonder what the extra torque and power is used for? Or perhaps the supply chain for truck-based ambulances is just more robust? An ambulance crash test was featured in a previous post.
