Bucyrus-Erie Company is a name synonymous with moving the 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. With a rich heritage going back 128 years
the company, now known as Bucyrus International Inc., is still designing
and building some of the world’s largest shovels and walking draglines.
Nothing could be more apt to describe this manufacturing power house
than its slogan used in the 1960s “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. This book is sure to
satisfy the serious equipment historian as well as the enthusiast.
