What is that machine, and what is it used for?  Haven’t the foggiest, but I could probably guess.

It is obviously used to kill monsters from Hell, should oil drilling go so deep that it releases such horrors upon the surface world.

I mean, what other explanation makes sense?

    Obviously meant to chop off the toes of Cthulhu, should he awaken.

    Like others have said, its a big ass Ditch Witch, great for trenching in services lines, such as phone/cable/power/water/waste.

    Or as we alumni of the U.S.Army Signal Corps like to call it. “That GD $%&^*D buried cable locator.”

  7. Yeah, they’ll go through conduit like nobody’s business!

    Don’t you know, everything is bigger in Texas!

    Actually such machinery is needed because the caliche soil is harder than any granite rock and starts about a half in below the surface in West Texas.
