Beast of the earth!

Speaking of fascinating gigantic machines, you are probably already familiar with this beast that devours the earth, and sometimes other things as well (there is a picture with a bulldozer stuck high up in the shovel-like cogwheel mechanism!).

The name of the beast is called Bagger 288 and was manufactured in germany by Krupp.

According to Wikipedia the monster is around 220 m long and 96 m high and it can excavate the equivalent of a football field dug to 30 m deep - every day!
