You've seen the Godzilla of Khazakstan and sure, it's an impressive piece of machinery. But it's a Tonka Truck compared to its big brother, the Bagger 288. This 13,500-ton leviathan chews the tops of mountains clean off.
With consumer technology companies locked in an endless race to to make the smallest, sleekest gadgets they can, it's easy to forget the primal joy of seeing mindblowingly huge hardware.
The Overburden Conveyor Bridge F60, used in open mines. It looks pretty huge here, sure, but how big is it?
Built in 1978 by German steel company Krupp, this giant trencher "Bagger 288" was designed for open mining trenching. Sure, its real functionality is absolutely not interesting at all, but that giant saw will give the Megazord a run for his money when I go crazy and destroy the Power Rangers once and for all!
