Kobelco says it developed ‘world’s tallest’ demolition machine
TOKYO, Japan–Kobelco Construction Machinery Co. has ,,, the world’s tallest demolition machine with an arm able to reach a point 65 meters above the base. Kobelco said it has applied for the machine to be registered in the Guinness Book of World Records…

The demolition machine does not look all that big until you see the comparison with a Kobelco employee and the just the claw of it. Yikes!

However, I would have figured that the world’s tallest demolition machine is the terror known as MechaGodzilla.
