Spotted this in someone's driveway off of damen and cermak yeaterday. Looks like a damn gold dredge in Pilsen. Wouldn't put it past a bunch of hipsters. Really, it's probably some sort of construction equipment. but has toons?

+1 for the dredge. Maybe something used in the rivers/canals in the area? What I can see looks like a large diesel motor on pontoons. Blowing up the overhead shot reveals what might be a dredging bucket.

Can you swing by, take the tarp off and snap some pics of the other end? :smile:

BTW, if you see Matt, get me an autograph.

There's actually valuable unexploded mines off fort Sheridan in Lake michigan. Might have used it to try finding those.
