For years some great pieces of abandoned machinery have been seen near Moscow, Russia
Bucket wheel excavators.
OMG such a typical sign of Russia, poor, old, rusting crumbling and rotting. I feel sorry for them
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!
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.
Are you serious Kirov? I would of loved to of been there at the time they were finding them. That’s like finding buried treasure!
I am always serious. My fakers are the clowns here. Here is a link in English:
Thank you Kirov!
Such a waste, these things are monument to mighty USSR.
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. ((
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.
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.
Ha Ha that’s pretty severe description!
Can anyone give instructions how to get to this place?
55° 16′ 04″ N, 38° 45′ 47″ E

7th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There seems to be plenty of abandoned things and places in Russia.
Simply amazing. I noticed that there were train tracks nearby, wonder why.
More importantly, what were these for?
What do you think they were for?
These are ore and sand excavators.
Could as well have been used to excavate lignite, if there is any around there.
OMG ich hab einen finger im arsch und es macht mir spaß
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.
In Germany we have a place like that called Ferropolis-now there are concerts, exhibitions and other events-maybe they could copy that?
This website spreads falsehood. This is photos of a Soviet amusement park.
How the car arrive on the top of the machine?
I seems like a terminator machines.
Inside Soviet Amerika, job abandon you!
All those strange abandoned stuff is really facineting! I gotta go to russia and serach for dumped stuff!
I think these abandoned machines are really dangerous, esp for children. I don’t see any security around these pieces of iron!
There is only one suitable question for this?
Deceptacon or Autobot?
Someone should recycle it.
the scale of these machines is incredible.
