As you can see this machine is extremely safe to operate with the engine, and gas tank outside right behind the seat. Thus thing was so load too. I thing it is some kind of digging machine. I am not sure what it was doing trying to get down food alley, I suppose it would be more understandable if the had a drive through there. Oh...... I remember drive troughs. Those are pretty nice. I am more thankful for those today as well.
