This colossal reference book documents the timeless human urge to reshape the world. Here, in detailed pictures and authoritative text, are the machines that have moved the earth from the 1800s to today. The copiously illustrated encyclopedia catalogs nearly every piece of heavy equipment ever made, by model and manufacturer, from the largest dozers and diggers to smaller utility tractors and loaders. The Earthmover Encyclopedia remains the most comprehensive, exhaustive book on the world’s most hard-working vehicles and machines.
