Ever wanted to buy a 4,000-ton excavator?
Location: Inden, Germany
This one is for sale
German utility RWE is auctioning off a 492 ft excavator
which was first put to work in 1959
but will soon no longer be required
Its current owner describes it as a "very delicate machine"
which applies no more pressure to the ground "than a lady's shoe"
The successful bidder will, of course
need to collect it on site
