Ben's page

Hi, I'm Ben, I go to places all over the world to see what interesting lifts I can find. The things I enjoy the most are Old lifts, fast lifts, rare lifts, lifts with relay logic, automated metro systems (especially the VAL system), trams, buses with fast drivers, Voith gearboxes, Electric buses, hacking computers, secret floors in buildings, abandoned buildings, going places I am not allowed to go, traveling to different countries, DC PWM drives, and old style VF drives (AC PWM) which use a set pulsing pattern which drops pulses at certain stages creating interesting changes to the sound.

My videos

Over the last 10 years I have been making videos. I have over 3000 videos. So finding my best ones can be a challenge.

I have put my videos into playlists for each catagory of video. The videos at the top of each playlist are my best ones.

Crane driving and building site fun

This playlist is all about going onto building sites and having fun. This includes climbing the cranes and driving them. My best building site video is the 230 meter Landmark Pinacle which was epic (although sadly the crane didn't drive on this one).
