The world largest exavator is amazing and imposant.
This image was photographed in 1990 near Cologne in Germany. The world largest ground vehicle was moved straight over a highway from one coal mining area to another.
The exavator is from "Krupp" in Germany and the world’s largest ground vehicle, named "Bagger 288", controlled by RWE AG. The giant weighs 45,500 tons, is 95 meters tall, 215 meters long, can produce 100,000 cubic yards of coal in opencast, and is able to load 2,500 trucks in one day.
