Super-duty earthmovers are the largest construction and mining vehicles in the world, and in many cases, the largest land-based machines ever built. These chart-topping gargantuans have scraped, hauled, pushed, and scooped millions of tons of material, and in the process, reshaped our world. Rear-dump haulers, bottom-dump haulers, modern loading excavators, crawler dozers, wheel loaders and dozers, giant scrapers, and graders, all are covered in this volume. Horsepower ratings and the working capacity dimensions and more are reviewed in detail. With an abundance of vehicle manufacturing and industry information, you get the inside line on these majestic machines.
Super-Duty Earthmovers is a comprehensive showcase of these land leviathans. Some 125 color photographs and 25 historical black and whites remarkably illustrate the evolution and technology and growth of these remarkable machines.
