Vulcan and the History Channel

It was inevitable that a product line as long in duration as Vulcan’s would attract attention outside of the deep foundations industry. In the course of developing the “Tools” program on various types of construction equipment and techniques, the Atlas Media Group (which did productions for The History Channel) contacted Vulcan. In July 2005 their film crew headed down to the yard of Rush and Parker in West Collingswood Heights, NJ, to film Vulcan #2 Hammer, S/N 463, in action in the yard. The hammer was produced in 1908, which meant that the hammer was 97 years old at the time of filming. Below are some photographs from that shoot.

The footage from this day in the yard–or rather, the little that was actually used–was first shown in March 2006.
