Holy Freaking Hell, This Saw Cuts Through Mountains

Tech puts us in a state of awe all the time. Sometimes it's the little things. The transistors. The immaculate pixels. The gorgeous lens. And then sometimes it's a humungous goddamn saw in Kazakhstan that obliterates everything in its path.


The Godzilla saw towers over 300 feet, weighs over 45,000 tons, costs $100 million, and can scoop 4,500 tons of mountain guts (that's what I call coal) per hour—per hour—leaving a gaping rock cavity in its wake. Luckily, you can outrun it, as it has a top speed of one mile every three hours. Just don't let it sneak up on you. Especially if you're a mountain. Because it's probably there to saw you apart.
