Holy Freaking Hell, This Saw Cuts Through Mountains

Tech puts us in a state of awe all the time. Sometimes it’s the little things. The transistors. The immaculate pixels. The gorgeous lens. And then sometimes it’s a huge goddamn saw in Kazakhstan that obliterates everything in its path.

The Godzilla saw towers over 90m, weighs over 45,000 tons, costs $US100 million, and can scoop 4500 tons of mountain guts (that’s what I call coal) per hour – per hour – leaving a gaping rock cavity in its wake. Luckily, you can outrun it, as it has a top speed of 1.6km every three hours. Just don’t let it sneak up on you. Especially if you’re a mountain. Because it’s probably there to saw you apart.
