Near my office they’re finally tearing down an apartment building that burned down about a year ago, and using this nifty machine to grind up the remains of the building. 

I’ve never seen one of these before – it’s called a ‘BioGrind’ machine by a company called Rexworks.  The giant shovel drops building debris into the hopper and finely ground (very dusty) stuff comes out the other end.  What they do with it, I don’t know.  Now that’s a wood-chipper!  And bricks, etc.

    Wonder why it’s named Biogrind.  I did a little search and it seems the company has changed hands twice in the last 3 years, and that concrete mixing trucks was the primary business for Rexworks.  Apparently they lost their competitive edge, and what is left of Rexworks is now owned by Trinity Industries, of Dallas.

    These machines can be equipped with screens for sorting material, a conveyor and, most importantly REMOTE CONTROL!

    With a couple of updrades, you’ve got a terraforming machine.

    Thats a cool machine… I heard somewhere that they use the resulting powder to make a building material kind of like cement.  I guess they just mix it with epoxy and make bricks out of it.
