This impressive new book is the definitive reference to heavy hydraulic excavators working in the UK, and is undoubtedly the most in-depth and comprehensive reference work on this specialised section of the industry to date.
It contains the author's own powerful and dramatic photographs of many of the largest and most productive hydraulic excavators ever to have worked in the UK. Some 80 different models, many of which are photographed in both backhoe and faceshovel configuration, are featured, and provide a visual insight into the often restricted world of opencast mining, quarrying and bulk earthmoving.
The stunning photographs are accompanied by comprehensive text which includes extensive technical descriptions of the machines featured, and the author's evaluation of their performance in the field. In addition, the work charts the development of the UK hydraulic excavator market and advances in excavator size and technology.
An invaluable addition to the bookshelf of every excavator enthusiast!
