As the hurricanes have moved out, heavy equipment begins to move in to begin rebuilding neighborhoods and businesses. Cleanup is occurring in Texas, Florida, the Carolinas and the islands, as Harvey, Irma and Jose move on. More hurricanes are in line to follow.

Only heavy equipment can remove such obstacles. As the name suggests, these vehicles will sink in the mud and, they themselves, will become just another obstacle.
