The Largest Earth Mover In The World

This is the largest earth mover in the world which was built by the German company, Krupp. It is seen above crossing a Federal highway in Germany on the way to its destination, an open-pit coal mine. It is actually cheaper to move the large excavator than to try to reconstruct or reassemble the earth mover on site.

Earth Mover Specifications:
* The mover stands 311 feet tall and 705 feet long. * It weighs over 45,500 tons * Cost $100 million to build * Took 5 years to design and manufacture * 5 years to assemble. * Requires 5 people to operate it. * The Bucket Wheel is over 70 feet in diameter with 20 buckets, each of which can hold over 530 cubic feet of material. * A 6-foot man can stand up inside one of the buckets. * It moves on 12 crawlers (each is 12 feet wide, 8' high and 46 feet long). * There are 8 crawlers in front and 4 in back. It has a maximum speed of 1 mile in 3 hours (1/3 mile/hour). * It can remove over 76,455 cubic meters each day. (100,000 large dump trucks at 40yds. each)

It is quite an amazing excavation machine. This is currently the largest earth mover in the world. In fact, this is the largest land moving object in the world…AWSOME !!!
