When the sun goes down the monsters come out to play... -Franklin Bridge over the 401

The hammers hit hard at 8:00pm and they hit hard! The Franklin Road Bridge was attached from both East and West side.

So it begins! Linkbelt 8000 with a second member shear eats away at the Franklin RD bridge over the 401 last night. This was a 13 hour deadline demolition which easily was completed 6 hours ahead of schedule! Surprised...? Not with @priestly_demolition_inc. Hats off gents what you do is truly amazing I have the utmost respect for you guys. Thanks @bjpriestly for getting me to come out. (Overseeing bottom left) -Linkbelt 8000Q

It isn't Wednesday, Thursday or Friday but I can still posts a wayback, throwback or flashback right? Well I'm going to anyways...this is another shot of the Victoria st bridge in Kitchener, not to far from Cambridge. Kitchener, Cambridge and Waterloo are three city in the somewhat central part of Southern/Southwestern Ontario that are often called the "Tri Cities". You can see a Komatsu PC450LC-8 in the foreground sifting rubble with a bucket, a bucket that quickly connects thanks to the @oilquickusa coupler. In the rear you see a big ole Link Belt 800LX, probably the same pig as the previously posted photo from Friday... These bridge demolitions are frikken amazing feats of planning, execution and pure power. Power that only @priestly_demolition_inc currently has here in Ontario. These guys won number 1,yes numero uno demolition company in the world for 2016!!! World renowned!! #komatsu #komatsuamerica #linkbelt #lbxco #komatsupc450 #pc450 #450 #linkbelt800 #800 #800lx #excavator #digger #trackhoe #destroyer #demolition #demo #demolitionlife #bridge #bridgedemo #heavyequipment #heavyiron #heavymachinery #equipment #equipmentporn #excavatorporn #pdi #priestlydemolition #yellowiron #dieselpower #hydraulicpower

So Priestly Demolition PDI has gone and done it again! Today, the morning after the Franklin Blvd. bridge over the busiest HWY in North America... the 401was demolished my phone is a little bit active with pics and questions like where you there? Did you see that!?! Last night at 8pm @priestly_demolition_inc sent a arsenal of excavators down onto the 401...excavators including a Link Belt 800LX with a monster second member shear pictured here. There was also the first ever Link Belt 8000 to be delivered in North America with a mass ex boom configuration and a second member shear as well! A big Komatsu PC600LC-7 and several Link Belt 460's, Komatsu PC490/450 and Kobelco SK480/485's. They had 13 hours to accomplish the task at hand, but PDI didn't need it! Around 3am, roughly 8 hours later PDI were walking machines off the highway! Unfortunately I didnt make it out to Cambridge last night as I already had long standing plans. I got this photo on Friday evening. BIG congrats and shout to @priestly_demolition_inc on another job well done! Hopefully there is another bridge this summer I can go and watch as it really is a exciting event! Even non heavy equipment freaks get all wound up and excited over something like a bridge disappearing in 8 hours! I love the look of the Link Belt brand excavator! It's a bit of a shame that after so many good years of a heavy Link Belt presence in the PDI fleet it seems Komatsu is quickly become the main choice in the PDI fleet! Can't deny the good equipment sales and service their dealer @essltd70 provides...ESS used to be the Link Belt LBXCO dealer for Ontario as well. I will be getting some sweet photos from my buddy @thewardens_hauling_heavy to post hopefully!

The monster’s take one last sleep before going to work tomorrow! Demo will start at 8:00PM so that will give me some good daylight to get some awesome photos tomorrow. Rather excited for the photos to come!

Someone’s hungry for concrete! -Linkbelt 460
