I understand the how, but not the why. Did they explain at the end of the video? I didn't watch the whole thing

The entire system is hydraulic, so all they did was remove the engine and placed it above water probably on some barge or something.



This is cool as shit.

The bolt missing out of the pad at the preview of the video really annoys me

Visibility is a bitch, need more current.

I'm pretty sure that voids the warranty.

Camera is on his mask. He took it off to wave for the camera and then put it back on. Learning how to take your mask off and on, then clear it underwater is a basic scuba skill.

Was thinking the same thing. I wonder how often he has to stop and wait for the silt to drift away to be able to see. Stuff underwater always looks darker on video so maybe it's not so bad in reality.

operators get paid decent money and divers make decent money
I imagine that guy gets paid really well lol

I dont understand why this isnt done with the escavator sitting on the barge setup with a long arm/boom whatever you want to call it?
thats the way they do it in shallow water here

ETA: must suck swinging a sledge under water

Can you imagine blowing a hydraulic hose?
Link Posted: 7/1/2015 4:35:43 PM EDT
What happens if you blow a hose and the system fills with water?

More importantly, who would win in a fight?
