Bucyrus 2570W Walking Dragline
A slightly closer crop on the two cabs and the machine house. This dragline has had an interesting past. It started work in 1971 and continues to this day! It did undergo an incident where it almost slid into the pit. I don’t have the details YET, but I have heard some rumblings about the incident.
A pair of behemoth machines called crawler-transporters have carried the load of taking rockets and spacecraft to the launch pad for more than 50 years at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Each the size of a baseball infield and powered by locomotive and large electrical power generator engines, the crawler-transporters stand ready to keep up the work for the next generation of launch vehicles to lift astronauts into space.
The crawlers are unique in the world, having been built in 1965 to move the massive Saturn V rocket from Kennedy’s Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Complex 39. After the Moon landing and Skylab programs ended, the crawlers continued their work, taking space shuttles to their launch pads for 30 years.
TBM (Tunnel Boring Machine)
TBM: A tunnel boring machine is particularly suitable for hard rock. Such large machines are also used for tunnelling in loose rock, which is unsuitable for driving using blasting techniques. Tunnel boring machines, together with shield machines (SM), belong to the category of tunnel boring machines (TBM). The most important part of a TBM is the boring head; it has a diameter of up to 20 metres and consists of a chisel carrier with rotating roller bits which transports excavated rock backwards. The equipment in the rear part of the drill head has a length of up to 200 metres with auxiliary equipment for large diameters. Tunnel boring machines are full-face cutting machines, which means that, unlike road headers, they excavate the entire tunnel cross-section in one step.
Bagger 293 Bucket Wheel Excavator
Exactly how big does a land-based vehicle need to be to qualify for the Guinness Book of World Records as largest in the world? How about 315 feet tall, 740 feet long, and weighing over 31 million pounds?
The Bagger 293 is a giant bucket-wheel excavator built in Germany in 1995. It requires a crew of five to operate and can move over 8.5 million cubic feet of earth per day. To put that in perspective, that is the equivalent of digging a hole the length of a football field and over 80 feet deep in a day.
