The largest land vehicle in the world

bagger 288

The Hambach brown coal mine in western Germany hosts the Bagger 293, formerly known as the TAKRAF RB293. Built in 1995, this one machine is just a touch larger than its previous incarnation, the Bagger 288. It has a bucket wheel that is over 70 feet in diameter, with 20 buckets, each capable of holding 15 cubic meters of dirt.

It is 315 feet tall, 738 feet long and weighs a whopping 31.3 million pounds.
