What is the world's largest digging machine?



Ever wonder just how they dig for diamonds and other precious gems in mines? Well, the use of picks and axes went out of style a long time ago and all mines today use some type of digging machine to do most of the major digging for them. But the chances are that there are very few mines that use machines that are this big. If there’s even more than one mine that uses it.

The machine was constructed by the company Krupp and it is stationed in Germany. In total, it took Krupp five years to complete the gigantic machine and cost a whopping $100 million. In total, the massive machine is 95 meters high, 215 meters long, and weighs a total of 45,500 tons. And not only can this huge machine drill at a rate of 10 meters per minute, but it can also move 76,000 cubic meters of rock, coal, and clay every single day.

On the bottom of the world’s largest digging machine are huge treads that allow the machine to move from place to place. These treads aren’t actually necessary when the machine is working at the mine, but it was cheaper for Krupp to install them on the bottom rather than pay for the cost of moving the machine from place to place whenever it needed to be relocated. And moving with the use of these treads is just what the largest digging machine is doing here as it ever so gracefully slides across a road in Germany.
