Submission + - World's Largest Digging Machine Goes to Work (singularityhub.com) 1

kkleiner writes: "Meet the bagger 288, the worlds largest digging machine. It’s 311 feet (95 meters) tall, 705 feet (215 meters) long. That’s almost two football fields (American). It weighs in at 45,500 tons (the Titanic weighed 46,328 tons). Completed in 1978, it took the German steelmaking company Krupp–now ThyssenKrupp–five years to build and carried a manufacturing cost of $100 million."
