cover photo

Since 1955 Moving the Earth has prevailed as the premier standard on heavy construction equipment and excavation. Now in this new edition, the authors, Herbert Nichols and David Day provide a completely updated guide to any size excavating project with a hands-on guide to operating these earth moving machines.

The book covers every aspect of site preparation and management as well as details on every machine and vehicle needed to perform each task. The book clearly explains hints and tips on stump pulling, making bog (or swamp) mats. All commonly used earthmoving machines are covered, from shovels and excavators, conveyor belts, wheel loaders, dozers, scrapers and much more. Also covered are some of the less common techniques, such as slack lines, sluicing, etc.

For years this book has been acclaimed as the most comprehensive single source on basic excavation techniques.
