If we would like to dig a little bit deeper in this topic, we should focus on the mining machines. Why? It’s cause mining industry is packed with such spectacular items. One of those will be Bagger 293 - intensely powerful machine, situated in Germany and used inside the coal mine. This specific monster is ninety six meters high and 225 meters tall and it requires five individuals to run it. What is extremely interesting, it is not a stationary machine - this monster can move, but dUE to its sizing and weight the velocity is merely 0,5 km/h.




Another one - called Overburden Bridge F60, it is the world's greatest machine which moves on its own.

Here is the kicker - it is 60 meters high, five hundred two meters long and 240 meters wide! Can you imagine such giant? It’s just mind blowing, isn’t it? And as we mentioned earlier, it can ride on its own - the speed is merely 0,78 km/h, though. This specific machine is used as a conveyor inside one of the German open air mines. And now something for many who like huge vehicles.


Do you know the machine called Trex RH400? It's the world’s biggest movable excavators. Wonder how large it is - well, ten meters high and 1000 ton weight. Seems like a “bit” heavy, right? It can move 85 tons of the mining output at once.


This kind of enormous machines are really spectacular, especially when we see those in action. There are huge amount of documentary movies on YouTube where we can see how such monsters work.
