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.
