    Incredible!!! :cool:

    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?

    Nice pictures.
    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!:)

    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

    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.

    Additional photos of scooped-up D8R

    Hi,, MuscleGirl.
    Thanks for those photos. I had seen the TV news item of the rig crossing the highway and some of the photos of the scooped-up D8R but none of the removal of the D8R from the machine.

    Great stuff. Thanks again.
