If you have a passion for heavy machinery, you'll be excited about David Wylie's guide to the Earthmovers of Scotland, complete with over 400 stunning photographs! Wylie has enjoyed privileged access to the mines, quarries, road projects, and forestry of Scotland. He's seen some of the biggest--arguably the best--earthmoving machinery in the world in action. Earthmovers in Scotland brings together 32 of David's reports from these visits to tell the story of the highly skilled, experienced owners, drivers, and managers that work with earthmoving equipment. He explains why they select, maintain, and operate these machines. The book features some of the largest earthmovers in the UK, such as: *Caterpillar's D11R bulldozer *Liebherr's massive 320 tonne R9350s *The mighty 520 tonne Q&K RH200 *And many more! He takes a look at a 1.5 tonne mini digger, special trailers that can lift and transport 1800 tonne bridges, and covers Demag's H485 record-breaking mining shovel amongst others. Taking pride of place in the book are over 400 stunning photographs, many of which have not been seen before and many of which feature machines that were the first of their kind. Each high-quality photo has been carefully composed to capture each machine in all its power and brilliance with the spectacular Scottish scenery as a backdrop, and 80 of the most important and detailed images are presented as double pages to help you get close to the action. This beautiful book sets out to provide its owner with a comprehensive look at the Scottish earthmovers scene, and it will be of interest to enthusiasts, owners, drivers, and site managers worldwide.
