Bottled water in Downton Abbey press photoUnnecessary bottled water strikes again! Fictional, historical dramas are not immune to the commination that is bottled water (probably used ‘commination’ wrong but it was a big word and sounded good – plus, it’s Downton Abbey.). [M]

Backhoes Buried In A Building’s Foundation Because It’s Cheaper.

Buried backhoe.

From the ‘If you can afford it, you can consume it’ file comes the story of how construction equipment is being buried in a building’s foundation because it’s cheaper than getting a crane to lift it out.

From Gizmodo:

“So these diggers team up, usually two-per-property, and carve out a little slice of heaven underfoot, sometimes up to 75 feet into the earth (where else are you supposed to store your fleet of vintage Ferraris, eh?).

Then what? Well, these super heavy mechanical shovels are basically stuck. Cranes can be used to lift them out but that’s expensive and generally a logistical nightmare. It’s cheaper and easier to essentially do nothing, so these machines being given a burial of sand and gravel right there where they’ve finished their work.”

Sweet! You can read more about this in the New Statesman.

So the classic children’s book “Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel” was a Jubbling exception. With no need for an earth mover in the basement of these buildings, burying the hardware is the only illogical solution. Hopefully they let thieves part it out first. [G]
