So the Post set out to learn more about the Backhoe Beamer, which residents discovered on Bleecker near Mott this past weekend. Just what happened here?
The heavy-duty piece of construction equipment lost battery power over the weekend, and ended up in back of, above and in front of the vehicle ...
A construction worker finally moved the John Deere machine yesterday morning, telling The Post that its battery ran down by “accident.”
The equipment belongs to a Long Island contractor fixing a nearby city water main. A company rep said that they would pay for the damages to the car (a few dents on the hood), which belongs to an anesthesiologist who lives across the street.
The story also sparked debate: Is it Beamer, Beemer or Bimmer (via purists)?
