Brew up at the pinnacle

By Pommy bastard 1 April 2009 13

I was walking my dogs at the pinnacle this evening, when I took slightly different route back to where I normally park my car., This brought me out near a CAT earthmover which has been parked there for a number of days.

It wasn’t until I approached it from this direction that I realised it was totally burned out.

Accident? Vandalism?  Any clues?

What’s Your opinion?

Sure, I don’t see why not, now that you raise it. Those things don’t come cheap!

‘Cause if the engine escaped, I imagine that the cab section can be replaced.

Hard to tell, I’m guessing from my images that the engine may have escaped the worse of it, looking at the smoke damage..

Was the engine burned out too, or just the cab?

Crane and a low loader there this morning, taking it away.
I cannot imagine they’ll get more than scrap value for it.

Some form of path maintainance I believe, either that or it’s bunny crushing time again.

What are they actually doing there?

Lets hope whoever did it is caught, before they get a chance to realise that pleasure then.

I don’t think the kind of moron who sets fire to expensive equipment cares much about the bushfire risks. In fact they’d probably feel pleased if a larger fire resulted from their activities.

This was probably one of Optimus Primes mates, which makes me sad:(

Why can’t people just be nice and leave things alone.

It is on Springvale drive PBO.

If it was vandalism, then it was the height of stupidity, as the Pinnacle is like a bloody tinderbox at the moment.

Looks like it happened while parked. Makes it look like vandalism to me. Seems to happens a lot to this kinda equipment, although that might be just an appearance because they are so visible.

Is that on Springvale dr? If so i will have a look this arvo. judging from the pics i would say vandalism.
