Description

Modern Earthmoving Equipment showcases today’s earthmoving machines that mine our valuable coal and minerals, construct our highways, lay pipelines, dig basements, landscape our parks, and show up to reconstruct and rescue people wherever disasters strike in the world. Bulldozers, wheel loaders, skid steers, scrapers, graders, excavators, off-road haulers, and walking draglines depict all the popular makes such as Komatsu, Caterpillar, Hitachi, JCB, Case, Deere, Liebherr and Terex, O&K, and Bucyrus; lesser-known manufacturers included as well. With special permission just to get some of these images, Keith Haddock’s spectacular color photographs, from the world’s largest earthmoving equipment to the smaller construction-size machines, feature these heavy movers of dirt in action.
