What is the name of the machine in my avatar?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (24649points) October 3rd, 2020

I will keep my avatar for a week or till we figure out what this machine is.

My guess is a pile driver or some kind of auger.

It drills holes in the ground and leaves what looks like metal or concrete in the hole.

It would help if you rotated the image 90ยบ clockwise.

That’s a bunny thing.

It won’t rotate. I took 10 different pictures at different angles. It just won’t work properly. Sorry.

I spent 30 minutes trying to fix it. I had to give up because it was frustrating me.

A trebuchet like this or a guillotine !

@Tropical_Willie It is in a construction site. It isn’t a trebuchet or a guillotine. It is like a crane but puts holes in the ground. Sorry for the poor picture. I will give up for now. Changing my avatar back to Psyduck and Herman cartoon for now.

I might try again when the sun rises and glare is minimal.

@Tropical_Willie Ok a Jelly sent me this photo. It is very much like my avatar. I will keep for a while. Is it a pile driver?

It looks like a pile driver.

It could be a pile driver. I have seen machines similar here that drill large holes to set pilings in concrete or to set drain pipes in the ground for sewage treatment plants.

Pile driver used for piers and seawalls.
