Specialized Support-Less Tunnel Building Truck System

January 14, 2016


This is a specialized truck used to build support-less stone tunnels. It's called the Zipper truck system, although I like to think of it as more of a Naked Mole Rat truck system. The blocks are lowered onto its roller back, then pressed into place with the weight of an excavator. The truck drives away and, TA-DA - you've got yourself a stone tunnel. Simple as that. Still, as cool as building tunnels is, you know what I like even more? BURNING BRIDGES. Awwww yeah, I hate all my friends don't ever text me again.

Keep going for a video, but feel free to skip around because 11 minutes of tunnel truck. I just want to lay on the back of that thing and get a body massage.

Thanks to David D, who builds tunnels the old fashioned way: quietly at night when the guards aren't making their rounds.

    That was poorly thought out and constructed.

    There is no structural support whatsoever.... nothing to keep one of those walls from eventually sagging and collapsing.

    There's a video in suggested videos about the Tunnel Boring Machine which is a pretty decent name. I think we should call this one the Boring Tunnel Machine... That just took way too long to watch. Time lapse motherfucker!! Time lapse.
