The Lyrics

One of the strangest German vehicles discovered after the war was a huge four wheeled device built by Krupp. This vehicle was the Krupp Räumer S. This vehicle was built in 1944. It weighed in at 130 tons and was support by 2.7 meter diameter steel wheels. The huge vehicle pivoted in the middle to keep the vehicles turning circle a reasonable distance. Each half of the Räumer S was powered by a 12-cylinder Maybach HL90 engine. There is still discussion about this vehicles purpose, but it is widely believed that due to the vehicle’s high ground clearance and well protected cabin it was used to clear mine fields. The front and rear wheels were at different spacing in order to create a bigger sweep area. It had a cab at either end which allowed it to reverse back through mine fields (assuming that was its purpose) without having to turn around. There seems to be a flaw with the mine sweeping role, that is the connection in the middle seems quite exposed and would seemingly be prone to damage from exploding mines. The only finished Krupp Räumer-S minesweeper was captured in Hillersleben in 1945 by the Americans
The Räumer, the Räumer
One-thirty ton minesweeping toy
The Räumer, the Räumer
Sheer weight on mines would destroy

The Räumer, the Räumer
Twin motor HL-90s
The Räumer, the Räumer
9 ft tires to destroy with ease

Krupp didn’t complete the Räumer
US Army looked it over!!!

[Not the only ODD minesweeper*]
