A Komatsu PC450LC-7HR high reach demolition excavator with a rotating demolition grapple from a job in downtown Hamilton this past summer! This machine is likely a aftermarket conversion and has a tilting cab and a pin on 3 piece high reach boom, I'd expect the standard excavator boom would be kicking around somewhere and could be pinned back on to make this machine a digger like many high reach demolition excavators of today. I saw this very high reach parked near the paint booth of the Richie Bros Auction facility in Bolton Ont. while I was checking out the September auction... Never made it over to the paint booth area to get a better look! Either this machine was simply painted or it was sent to auction! I believe this high reach was/is owned by a general contractor of sorts who rented it out to whoever needed/needs it! *** edit note: This high reach was originally owned by Terrasan but was owned by Corbett Contracting at the time this photo was taken and is still owned by Corbett Contracting today. This machine was at Richie in September for paint NOT for sale!*** (thank you to @ianbartels for the confirmation of info) This very machine was also featured in last years Demolition Days of December when Titan Demolition was using it to help take down a old cement factory! #komatsu#komatsuamerica#komatsupc450#pc450#pc450lc#pc450lc7#excavator#trackhoe#destroyer#highreach#demolitionexcavator#highreachexcavator#demolitionequipment#demo#demolition#wrecking#heavyiron#yellowiron#bigmachine#heavyequipment#heavymachinery#heavyequipmentlife#demolitionlife#recycling#heavyequipmentphotos
A WAY UP #boomsupfriday to celebrate the last day of November! December 1st tomorrow! Let the chaos begin lol!! This machine is a Komatsu PC850LC-6UHD high reach demolition excavator belonging to the Canadian Demo power house @priestly_demolition_inc The base machine of this uhd excavator is a Komatsu PC750LC-6 which was converted into the beast in 2002! During this machines early days, before it was owned by Priestly it worked at ground zero helping to clean up after 9/11 while still in standard excavator set up. The telescopic boom can reach a height of 150' and is raised by Cat 5110 boom cylinders! All hydraulic cylinders on the boom are apparently Cat... Interesting! The cab raises and tilts and I believe this machine weighs in around just under 90tons!!! This photo is courtesy of a @essltd70 field mechanic who often works with @priestly_demolition_inc and their in house mechanics to try and keep up with the shear volume of equipment in Priestly Demolition's massive fleet! Here @essltd70 was helping to dismantle the PC850 for transport as this old girl just finished taking down some old metal lattice power transmission tower which used to carry high voltage powerlines from the former coal fired Lakeview Power Plant! Nice long standing relationship between two Canadian greats! @priestly_demolition_inc and @essltd70 working together for decades! #komatsu#komatsuamerica#komatsuiron#pc850#pc850lcuhd#pc750#pc750lc#pc750lc6#excavator#trackhoe#highreach#highreachexcavator#demolitionexcavator#heavyiron#bigmachine#heavyequipment#heavyequipmentlife#yellowiron#heavymachinery#demolition#demo#demolitionlife#heavyequipmentmechanic#fieldtech#fieldtechfriday

Sweet shot of the Komatsu PC850UHD working at the old Lakeview generating station.
The footings and the power line towers are some of the last pieces to go.
Real awesome photo from @jordandevouge thanks for letting me post it.
