Marvin Heemeyer's Killdozer

> This mechanical horror was made over a decade ago and destroyed half a town.
> Still no new ones made and improved on by /k/ autist.
Why having there been more of these killdozers made since? This thing was an absolute monster and i am surprised that only one existed since a decade.

      Seriously anon? That's a really expensive project requiring a specific skill set and equipment. How many people do you think have those skills and resources and at the same time are autistic enough to build something like this?
      Think about it this way: what's stopped YOU from doing it? Yeah, that stopped everyone else too.

      youtubers are really the ideal niche for this since they can at least hope to profit off views and merch making it a justifiable project. I'm surprised one of them didn't do it earlier.

        Even there though the zero sum thing and high capex factors in. Most youtubers aren't making 7 figures a year off of it let alone 7 figures off a single video, to put it mildly, and most of the stuff they do doesn't require 6-7 figures of investment and/or a shitload of specialized time and effort. And even for those who do there is still the question of, why this? You can spend that kind of money on a lot of other awesome stuff as well to do videos about.

        So probably it can't make economic sense for anyone, and thus you need some other reason and the resources. Which is rare.

          That might explain why it took so long to get around to it. I don't follow WD but I've seen a few of his videos, he's been doing crazy shit like putting homemade spiked wheels on Ferraris for years, not to mention all the monster truck stunts, etc....so it sounds like he already did a lot of the other awesome stuff first.

    Because it requires a very specific venn diagram overlap:
    - Access to large amounts of money.
    - Access to specialized equipment and a machining facility you have full control over.
    - Specialized skills.
    - Ability to do calm long term planning and sustained effort.
    - The right location and environment.
    - Wanting to use all that in a specific kind of suicidal schizo spergout vs a million other things, including just moving elsewhere. Which by definition you have the ability to do, because you have large amounts of money and useful specialized skills that are in demand all over and lots of hard assets that could be moved or liquidated.

    The circle here in small, small enough that in all of recorded human history it has encompassed exactly one person: Marvin Heemeyer. Most of us possess components but not remotely the whole picture, particularly since various parts of it are somewhat contradictory normally.

        rampage through the city because your business got fricked by city planning
        >>calm long term planning
        Yes? He bought the dozer in 2002, and his dangerous criminal rampage was 2004. It involves lots of work, during that time he also had to design and put together the armor system, funded things with a large property sale, negotiated a lease to go along with it so he could keep at it, constructed (illegal) living quarters so he wouldn't use his house anymore, etc. Almost no crazy revenge people have time horizons spanning multiple years and that kind of complexity.

        It was a major project and operation. And of course by the same token, he could have used all that money and time to go elsewhere and live well.

                no he never had one in the first place because he was too cheap to pay for his part, and he never paid for a normal septic system either. he did try to leech off a neighbors though maybe they stopped that one.

              • 3 weeks ago
                Anonymous

                No, his property never had a sewer line.

                He requested the city annex him into the system anyway, though, so that he could get one installed later.
                He then neglected to install one for OVER 10 years, presumably because he couldn't afford one. (you always have to pay for your own hook up)
                Someone from the city noticed this and told him to fix it, and even gave him an extension of ~a year, but he still declined to do it. Even after they told him he could just install a proper septic tank, he still kept dumping his shit in the ditch.
                That's why he got fined.

                The real kicker is that the concrete plant owners next door that he hated so much offered to pay for the whole sewer line if he dropped his dumbass lawsuit over their expansion. He declined the offer and lost the lawsuit.

          It wasn't though. Heemeyer was a homosexual and completely in the wrong. There's fricking nothing cartoonishly evil about "don't dump your poop out in a ditch bothering your neighbors, pay for a fricking sewage system". There's nothing admirable about sperging out because you bought unimproved land for dirt cheap with known missing or old infrastructure and the government won't give you gibs and pay for everything itself for you.

              lol no:
              - He bought a couple acres for like $45k, planning an autoshop. Fine.
              - Said property did not come with a muni sewer connection. It had zero modern sewer at all either, just an old decaying literal cement mixer previous owners had buried and that's it, completely not up to any standard anywhere in the US. This is also very normal for mostly unimproved rando land in small rural towns.
              - Town responsibility: overall system maintenance, public land. You're responsible for your private land connection if you want to connect.
              - Town reasonably pointed out he could just do a normal septic system instead. Like I have at my house. It's cheap. Go look it up, even with decades of inflation, massively increased labor costs etc, right now, today, you will pay like $5k-15k for a typical system depending on details of area and land. It's no big deal if you're not a pajeet.
              - He refuses to do it, he says government not doing it is "extortion" (lol!), and yet he continues his voluntary, unnecessary request to get annexed to the sewer district anyway. Like, wtf you fricking moron?
              - Everyone lets him be anyway and years go by. He builds a muffler business.
              - Neighbors want to build their own business. Offer to buy land. He says he wants $250k. They say ok. He changes his mind and wants another 50%. They offer $350k. No, now he wants a half mil. They give up.
              - Neighbors address public noise/environment concerns like normal. He squanders all potential support. Town planning process democratically ultimately approves commercial development, in this commercial area.
              - He appeals on lies, and then sues.
              - They offer to settle, to pay for his sewer hookup themselves.
              - His shitty buried truck overflows. He just goes and pumps raw sewage into an irrigation ditch behind him on someone else's land. Tries to illegally just leech onto another neighbor's line.
              - 9 years after being supposed to do this basic thing of taking care of his shit, starts getting fines.
              - Spergout

                This isn't fricking India. The most simple above-animal thing in the world is to take care of your own poop and piss and not pump it onto your neighbor's land. Actually that's too generous because even some animals like cats know how to bury their shit and be inconspicuous about it. Everyone repeatedly bent over for the stupid fricker, not fining him promptly, offering to buy him out at 800% or more what he paid for the land despite it still being subcode, offering to take care of the problem for free. He refused out of sheer lolbertarian spite and invented grievance and because people like that see any form of generosity as weakness and somehow an insult. It's why any code violations should ideally be enforced hard and immediately because if you let leeches get comfortable and have more time they're never, ever grateful for it, they just get entitled.

Literally, he was just taking his garbage and heaving it down the hill into a small ravine behind him with water flowing onto my land and other neighbor's land then into a wetland area a lot of us like to hunt and fish in. He did this for a decade before someone was testing water for nitrogen and noticed the strange pollution showing up, and then we all tested too, and then traced it back. Because he was too fricking cheap and lazy to pay for garbage service.

                I'm sure you're an ass who never actually looked at what happened and you sound like a citygay too who's never lived in a small town, because small towns very frequently have at least a few absolute jackasses, crazy loons, lolberts, or whatever who nobody really wants to deal with because of minimal government, funds etc. Until finally they become absolutely unhinged and unignorable, pushing into town and neighbor business too far. Yeah there are also small towns with shithead sheriffs or whatever but that's not what happened here. And note that normally they get away with it.

        They didn’t use AT rifles. He ran into a building and one of the treads got stuck in the basement leaving the Killdozer completely immobilized. Once he realized the rampage was over he shot himself.

          His radiator was also already toast and engine failing. without the basement stuckage coulda gone a little longer but the thing was near the end of its rope anyway.

          It's a fricking bulldozer with some sheet metal welded to it. It's nothing exciting and it's not special.

          nah marvin was a shithead but you're a homosexual as well. the thing was pretty well done and it sure as frick wasn't sheet metal. It was 2.5" steel plates sandwiched with concrete in the middle, so improvised composite armor. Completely bullet proof. And for navigation he had multiple cameras connected to wienerpit monitors, with the cameras protected by 3" of Lexan, and even the detail of having compressed air nozzles around them to blow away dust and such and maintain visibility. He had wienerpit comfort too, with added air conditioning to maintain environment while he was driving. It was a very serious effort, and it worked. An anti-tank missile would have taken it out, but it was effectively invulnerable to small arms.

            You're amazed by completely mundane things. None of this shit is special, you just think it is because you're easily impressed.

                I hate to break it to you but armored vehicles have been made from the existence of the very first vehicle. The only "amazing" thing about it was that there was single lunatic willing and able to spend lots of money and time up-armoring a bulldozer.

                I hate to break it to you zoomie child, but broad categorizations and ideas are near completely meaningless IRL. Implementation is 99% of any actual work. You wouldn't happen to be a zigger would you? Because you have strong

    Marvin was a guy with nothing left to lose. Believe it or not those guys are surprisingly rare, even rarer are those with the capital and knowhow to build a killdozer discretely like Marvin did.

        No he shot himself. He was in it, not killed by it.

    israelis have made a lot of use of combat bulldozers recently in particular. but every army has combat dozers though not quite covered. but note how killdozer quickly overheated and broke down. the armor honestly is kinda whatever. but the early "virtual wienerpit" in retrospect is one of the more interesting innovations that hasn't caught on anywhere as much yet.
