At one point last week, I realised not many of my readers will have actually stopped and watched the big augers in action. So, I went out just before Christmas and stood in the COLD taking a couple of short videos. You're welcome. I loaded them up on Youtube Christmas day but was too tired to do anything with them.
The company doing the work is Rumble Foundations out of Mississauga. That's all they do - foundations for big builds. I was poking around their website and figured they are putting caissons in. If I'm wrong, please correct me. I'd be happy to be educated on the process. They've done a lot of the big jobs here in Toronto, but this is the first time I've paid attention to what they are doing. I have to say, I really expected this work to be far noisier. I'm sure it will get pretty loud at one point during the build, but the augers themselves are surprisingly muted.
Here's the first one:
This one is better - they were drilling near the entrance and I was able to catch a great video of them dumping the dirt off the auger itself.
