Seen crossing highway in Germany.
Building: 5 years
Cost 100.000 $
Max speed: 0,5 KMH 0,31 MPH
That is an amazing machine. , with five operators the first thing they must teach in the "how to operate this beast" class is COMMUNICATION!
Has anyone found any shots of it actually working? (not just chewing on CAT's)
Does it screen and separate the diggings too?
That D8 is small.
But i bet you got the price wrong...100 000 dollars is not enough for that little thing.
And don't stop now, u know we boys love toys!
Have a nice day!
Nice pics! I've seen the ones of it traveling and the D8 stuck in the wheel but had not seen the pics of the dozer being removed, Thanks for posting them. Thats pretty wild.

I have seen the wheel on TV but not the dozer. Is that what happens if you doze a little to close to the wheel? DP
We can dig it
IIRC that D8 was park close to the high wall during a shift change or something.
The output of this thing is actually 240 000 cubic meters a day, if it would work 24h non stop at maximum speed.
This afcourse never happens.
I have some pics of machine number 282 working taken last year on a trip with the dutch Bouwmachineforum.
big wheels keep on turnin' proud V8 keep on burnin'
Scania R620 => As a matter of fact I DO own the road
