Chapter 154: The steel fist (1 of 2)
Translated by me, edited by drpetro.
Fu Weiyu stood at the side, waiting comfortably for the test equipment to enter.
Them compromising was a win for himself was what Fu Weiyu thought.
A construction project worth more than tens of millions was now completed covered by his company. If this was completed, then there would be no need to worry about company funding for the rest of the year.
Which is why, for Fu Weiyu, no matter if his methods were despicable and shameless, he was still going to keep this project to himself.
Although he must admit that Ye Qing had some great connections since just one call from him was enough to send him acting like they were packing up and moving out, but no matter how much money he had, he still had to deal with their shamelessness.
After all, a mob will always be stronger than an individual.
And in the construction sector, Fu Weiyu firmly believed himself to be this mob.
Under him were a couple hundred loyal employees of questionable nature, which was unlike many other companies in the business who had their own go to contracting builder teams.
If it was anything related to keeping a construction project then, to be honest, Fu Weiyu wasn’t afraid of anyone.
After they leave, don’t think of being able to find anyone to continue where they left off. Which meant that the construction would be left there unfinished, which would lead to tons of losses.
So in the end, they still had to invite them back to continue.
Finally hearing that familiar engine rumbling, Fu Weiyu looked over, thinking about what kind of construction vehicle needed such a powerful engine.
It was just that with one look, Fu Weiyu’s eyes were wide open in shock because he just didn’t know what this piece of equipment was.
That giant height, it had to be at least six meters tall. Its base looked very much like a 3D rhombus shaped object. Its length was even longer than two excavators combined, and then there were the two arms at the top and that giant toolbox at the back.
Although Fu Weiyu didn’t know what this machine was used for, but just its looks alone were very beautiful.
Ye Qing towered above in the cockpit as he coldly laughed at the mouth gapingly stunned Fu Weiyu on the roadside.
Smash my workshop?
Ye Qing had finally been pissed to the point of no return by Fu Weiyu. Which was why he decided to use an alternative quick way to settle this.
When the Mechanical Colossus entered the construction site, Ye Qing started up the arms of the machine. With the release of many locks, the two folded mechanical arms revealed themselves just like a folding knife.
The busy workers on the construction site all stopped what they were doing and curiously stared at the strange machine.
Currently on the site were more than 40 large scale construction vehicles. Just the excavators alone numbered more than 20, and the scale of the two compaction machines was much larger. However, when comparing this machine with their own, just the appearance alone was like the difference between Altos and Audis.
What functionality was this machine going to test?
Not only were the workers thinking, even their lead Zhang Jun and boss Fu Weiyu were looking on with interest.
They had never seen anything like this machine before, which was why they were curious as to just what exactly this machine could do.
Ye Qing didn’t disappoint as he immediately widened their horizons.
On the arms of the Mechanical Colossus were a pair of jackhammers, which were being secured as the machine itself rumbled next to the heavy lifter.
This heavy lifter was one of Liber’s 25 ton lifters, which right now was parked right next to the completed work shop and had its crane over the roof. When the Colossus arrived in front of it, Ye Qing didn’t even bat them an eye or pay any attention to anyone present as he lifted up the arms of the Colossus and smashed down with force.
It can only be called a smash when the falling speed has surpassed terminal velocity.
If a regular excavator was to smash something, then it’s basically as fast as something that was hit with a slow spell. However, for the Mechanical Colossus it was as simple as lift and drop, fluid like humans.
A crashing sound that could rock the mountains echoed on as the heavy lifter coming at several hundreds of thousands literally had a hole smashed through under the force of the hammer.
“You! You! You!” Fu Weiyu right now sounded just like a broadcasting station as he shivered while pointing at the Colossus. Because no matter how hard he thought, there was no way he would’ve thought that this machine’s trials would begin like this.
After the first hammer hit, the Colossus raised its arms again for another go.
This time, the lifter’s arm was completely smashed and bent. The low alloy steel arm in front of the Mechanical Colossus literally felt like a piece of wood.
The construction site also sank into chaos at the same time. The workers who had always been beyond arrogant, upon seeing their equipment getting smashed, immediately went into berserk mode and ran off towards their excavators and bulldozers.
As the Mechanical Colossus continued to pummel this lifter into smithereens, the eyes of this lifter’s driver also went bloodshot.
If stares of anger could kill, then Ye Qing right now would have definitely become an already shot up ragdoll.
Sadly they were of no use!
Fu Weiyu mustered all the courage he had as he ran right next to the Colossus and yelled at the top of his lungs: “President Ye, what is the meaning of this! I even said that I’ll fix everything for you!”
“An accident, purely an accident.” Ye Qing stuck out his head and laughed out loud: “Mr. Fu, if your lifter operator can cause an accident, then me who has never driven an excavator before is naturally going to be worse at this.”
20 excavators and 4 bulldozers came in from all sides, formed a semicircle in front of Mechanical Colossus, and trapped it right next to the workshop walls.
Seeing the army like display of construction vehicles behind him, Fu Weiyu’s smile immediately turned back to that of a sly bastard.
These employee of his had all been with him through thick and thin. The number of times they drove mechanical equipments to wreck havoc at other people’s sites was way beyond counting.
Especially the drivers of these 20 some excavators, they were the elite of the elites as none of them had the guts to chicken away from anything.
“President Ye, you must give me an explanation.” Fu Weiyu looked up with his giant head: “I’ll fix the damaged workshop, but there is no way that I’m paying for the lifter’s repair bill.”
“So you must pay!”
“Oh ~ cash, I got tons of of, but so what.” Ye Qing looked down from the front windshield as he picked his nose: “When dealing with dimwits like you guys, there’s just no such thing as discussion. As the only talk you people understand is force. Which is why you should now say goodbye to all your equipment.”
“How dare you!” Fu Weiyu’s face looked like just a piece of frozen pig liver, where the red all quickly turned to purple: “I’ve got more than 20 excavators here, you think I won’t be able to rip apart this piece of trash of yours?”
“If you can’t, you’ll be my grandson?” Ye Qing continued to laugh.
Fu Weiyu’s eyes was spitting out poisonous looks non-stop, as he seriously wanted to go up there and rip that piece of equipment to pieces.
However, the ruthless reality told him that this was a site with many witnesses. It wasn’t that these things couldn’t be done, rather, it was that he needed to find a better time and do it away from the eyes of potential bystanders.
This was what he was thinking as he then chose to have his workers scare him a bit, to show just how tenacious they were for this contract.
It was only a high-endish looking piece of equipment. They had more than 20 excavators here, so no matter how big this guy’s background was, if the excavators were to scratch it a couple of times as a terrifying tactic, then it should be ok.
Within the encirclement of excavators, several of them promptly charged forward.
An excavator driver lifted his claws as he went to pat the Mechanical Colossus.
Just as the claws of the excavator were about to hit the Mechanical Colossus, its arm was suddenly swung down like a hammer.
Accompanying the ear drum shocking crash that echoed as a result, the forearm of the excavator was smashed and deformed completely as its hydraulic pillar and pipes all exploded its oily contents into the air.
This easily angered the drivers who all lived under the same roof as they all exploded right away and rushed forth with their excavators to the sound of loud wailings, determined to rip this Mechanical Colossus to shreds.
Ye Qing operated the Mechanical Colossus not forward but backwards as he faced the incoming excavators. When he finally found a gap, a hammer strike was immediately sent forth towards the arm of nearest excavator. Then, what quickly followed was the slam of a button. The left arm then swiftly turned around and let loose of its jackhammer to the tone of automated mechanical sounds.
A giant demolition shear was suddenly installed onto the mechanical arm, as it displayed its chilly razor sharp blades.
