Ukrainians created a machine for demining territories based on an excavator

With the support of the defence council of the city of Kryvyi Rih (Zelenskyy's hometown, by the way), for the past 4 months, work has been ongoing on the creation of a machine for humanitarian demining of Ukrainian fields, meadows and other territories. Simple and effective:  to the crawler excavator are welded weighting compound chains, which hit the ground with a force of 1.500 to 1.700 kg. For the detonation of a mine, a force of up to 150 kg is required, accordingly, the Ukrainian development will be effective even for neutralising mines that are buried deep in the ground.

A special shield, an additional armoured layer around the cab, and surveillance cameras ensure the safety of the equipment driver. The speed of the car is 2 km/h. Today, the machine is undergoing testing, and it will be mass-produced after receiving certification. This will help accelerate the speed of demining in Ukraine and protect farmers, repairmen, and ordinary passers-by.
