I’m really into big construction machines, and this bad dog certainly qualifies. The LeTourneau L-2350 monster wheel loader sports a 53 cubic yard bucket on its massive front arm. For these of you who still can’t picture that, try this: that’s enough space to hold a small fire-truck. LeTourneau builds these to work in some of the largest mines in the world.
It’s powered by a 16-cylinder turbocharged diesel that delivers over 2300 HP to the wheels, which is enough to move it along at about 10-1/2 MPH. That doesn’t sound like much until you consider that it can do it while bench pressing 160,000 pounds 11′ in the air. It also comes in any color you’d like – as long as it’s construction yellow.
