Bucyrus Heavy Equipment Construction and Mining Machines 1880-2007 (A Photo Gallery) by Keith Haddock

With a rich heritage stretching back 128 years to 1880 the Bucyrus name, in all of its manifestations, has become synonymous with moving earth. From the smallest loader-backhoe to some of the largest machines ever to move on land, no other company has produced such a wide variety of types and sizes of excavating equipment.

Nothing could be more apt to describe this manufacturing powerhouse than its 1960s slogan - "The Longest Line on Earth".

Over 450 spectacular black and white photos combined with detailed captions chronicle and describe all the major equipment product lines from Bucyrus Company, Erie Steam Shovel, Bucyrus-Erie and Ruston-Bucyrus. Every machine model from the extensive lines of cable excavators, hydraulic excavators, walking draglines, stripping shovels and drills is included, plus tables of machine introductions and production. There's also detailed coverage of floating dredges, tractor equipment, cranes, bucket wheel excavators and other special machines.
