    Nice to see these up close. When we lived in Shanghai, we saw these from a distance all over the city on building projects. Some of those pile driving units were much larger than the ones shown. A building got started near the office we were in, hearing those pound all day long wasn't much fun!

    Big old diesel drivers. I imagine it would be annoying to listen to that all day long for weeks. But, they are still fascinating to watch.
