Have a large, heavy item to remove? Here’s how they handle it in Japan! This 2011 video was filmed in Iwaki City (after the March 11 earthquake that year) by local volunteers helping to paint and clean up local shops in the city. They stopped working to watch post-earthquake clean up of these huge metal pieces by a garbage truck with a giant claw.

More machines and more vehicles in the archives.
