Dal retro di copertina:
Earthmoving machinery has allowed us to shape the world in which we live. Almost every task we perform has been made possible by earthmovers. From the days when our ancestors dreamt of using mechanical means while toiling away on their projects, to the advent of steam power, we were on our way to developing some of the most impressive pieces of equipment to help us reshape mother earth.
The Earthmover Encyclopedia is the ultimate reference guide to this world of earthmoving machinery. Along with the history of earthmovers, from manpower to machine power, the development of the primary energy sources from steam to electricity and the modern diesel engine, this book consists of a chapter on each type of earthmoving machine and 900 photos with detailed captions.
Author Keith Haddock provides us with unparalleled coverage and a surplus of information on each class of equipment with detailed vital stats on each machine. Get ready to experience the most comprehensive book on earthmoving equipment in North America.
