The sideboom is the iconic workhorse of the Pipeline. I have put a few samples of its job  on this page, but a click on the first picture will connect you to a video just about sidebooms, with a bit of incidental music.

Another sideboom job is working with the augerbore crew

Working as a team to feed the last few feet of the pipe into the HDD bore at Celcon

Tie-ing in a run of mainline at Mitchell's Farm, Ightham.
