Abandoned TBM cutter-head in Predators movie

20th Century Fox / Tunnel Insider

In the 2010 movie Predators, Royce (Adrien Brody), a mercenary who appears in an unidentified jungle among other murderers and otherwise undesirable people, find that they have been abducted and placed on a planet which acts as a game reserve for two warring tribes of extraterrestrial killers, and actively look for a way to return to Earth.

There is a particular scene in the movie (1:12:32 – 1:14:05) where the group runs through what appears to be the inside of an abandoned tunnel boring machine (TBD) to escape from one of the Predators’, exiting the TBM through its cutter-head holes where the blades would have normally been.

Based on the look of the cutter-head, it appears to be from a Robbins Company, Main Beam TBM.

We’re fairly certain that the cutter-head was missed by almost all viewers unless they knew what it was at first sight or a Robbins Company employee (wink, wink)
