Saw this the other day and started researching it a bit. This guy got into RC stuff in 1997 or so, and in 2003 he decided he wanted to dig out the basement after it flooded (Canadian houses have the footings sunk down 8+ feet below ground level). He has been going for 8 years so far, and Im not sure he has finished. The really amazing part is that each of these
toystools, apart from having real hydraulics, costs upwards of $4000, sometimes double that.
