Staten Island Pat


New York City’s newest toy, a 110-ton, 300-foot-long Caterpillar boring machine named “Pat,” will soon spearhead a $250 million water tunnel project. Digging a 12-foot diameter tunnel almost two miles long, Pat will create the replacement for two other, shallower tunnels currently in the way of expanding the port city’s shipping capacity.

Caterpillar eh? Wonder how that would do in a drag race with a Herrenknecht?
