Since the Industrial Revolution and even before, people have been creating machines to enhance our quality of life, increase production, and increase profits. Today, we’re going to look at some constructed historical monsters!
Bagger 288 Excavator
The German company Krupp produces the Bagger 288 (sometimes known as the Excavator 288), a mobile strip mining machine. It belongs to a class of vehicles that also includes the Bagger 281, Bagger 285, Bagger 287, and other models. It can extract 240,000 tons per day, or as much heavy coal as a football field buried 30 meters below the surface! 16.56 megawatts of externally supplied electricity are required for the Bagger to function. It could move between two and ten meters per second (0.1 to 0.6 kilometers per hour).
Caterpillar 797 haul trucks
The off-road mechanical haul truck Caterpillar 797 series was created in the US. With dimensions of 50 feet long, 24 feet tall (with 51 feet elevated), and 31 feet broad, these haul trucks are the biggest and most potent produced by Caterpillar. The newest model has an astounding 393-ton load capacity. Although each truck can be tailored to fit the needs of each buyer, the Caterpillar 797 has a 21-year service life and typically costs $5 million.
