With a cruising speed of less than a kilometre per hour, this giant bucket-wheel excavator is something you don’t want to get caught behind! 

The machine is used in surface mining and is one of the largest mobile machines in the world. The largest excavators are over 200 metres long and 100 meters high and can dig a hole the length of a football field to over 25 metres deep in a single day.
