Senior Center Update for November
While watching the workers, I noticed one person who seemed to be operating a small machine without actually touching it. Back at home, I looked it up and sure enough, it is a radio-operated compacting machine to press down the loose soil. In concept, it reminded me of those Radio Shack remote-controlled toy cars, but as you can see, this little rugged machine is a workhorse.
According to a contracting industry publication, the advantage of radio control is that the operator is safer than if he were physically running a machine to compress the soil in tight work spaces.
