    Bucket wheel excavators.

    There’s one of those in the new Stalker game. Awesome machines, but if I lived next to one of those wrecks I’d sue the owners to make sure they were dismantled.

    I just figured out what Russia’s largest commodity is. It’s Rust!

    • Kirov says:

      Very Russian – just dump what you don’t need somewhere – we have plenty of space, its a big country!!
      Nobody cares. Vsjo normalno, da ?

      In Ural mountains they found 100 T-80 tanks, abandoned.


  4. Such a waste, these things are monument to mighty USSR.

  5. Grinya says:

    Yes, mighty USSR! But now Russia is weakest country in the World and Putin sell Russian Syberia to China by parts. Most of people totally indifferent to country’s fate. it’s so pity. ((

    • Chris says:

      Unfortunately, China will just take Siberia.

      The Russians will not be able to do anything about it because in a couple of generations there will be very few Russians. Too much abortion.

      • Kirov says:


        living circumstances are often so bad most people can not afford children.
        Also infertility is problem – generations of heavy drinking, poor food and non-stop stress took their toll. Average Russian male is finished after 40, just a blob in ill-fitting clothes.

  7. New Fake Kirov says:

    7th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There seems to be plenty of abandoned things and places in Russia.

  8. Ike says:

    Simply amazing. I noticed that there were train tracks nearby, wonder why.
    More importantly, what were these for?

  9. L says:

    What do you think they were for?
    These are ore and sand excavators.

    OMG ich hab einen finger im arsch und es macht mir spaß

  12. EnglishCanuck says:

    They were used to convey ore to waiting train cars for transport. Some of these machines ran on rail themselves, to position for loading. Then, the ore ran out and it wasn’t worth moving them. Sell them to China, they need steel.

  13. MV12 says:

    In Germany we have a place like that called Ferropolis-now there are concerts, exhibitions and other events-maybe they could copy that?

  14. Cracker says:

    This website spreads falsehood. This is photos of a Soviet amusement park.

  15. alvarhillo says:

    How the car arrive on the top of the machine?

  16. Marek z Polski says:

    I seems like a terminator machines.

  17. CBEH says:

    Inside Soviet Amerika, job abandon you!

  18. Erik says:

    All those strange abandoned stuff is really facineting! I gotta go to russia and serach for dumped stuff!

  19. Eugene says:

    I think these abandoned machines are really dangerous, esp for children. I don’t see any security around these pieces of iron!

  20. Reylynn says:

    There is only one suitable question for this?
    Deceptacon or Autobot?

  21. Someone should recycle it.
