One of Mr. Macs friends sent him these pictures and some facts and figures about the Ultimate Earth Mover - the biggest digger in the world! Just click one of the images and a larger version will pop up in a new window.

Some ultimate earthmoving facts:

  • 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 and 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).
