In 1969 This Was The Largest Walking Dragline Excavator In The World!!!

If you thought you had seen a big piece of machinery, think again! Back in 1969 this massive machine was worth $25 million, which today is approximately $161 million. But with an enormous price tag, there comes am enormous machine. This Dragline Excavator was and still is the largest known to man.

“Big Muskie ” is its name, and digging holes is its game. Unlike any other Dragline Excavator, this one actually walked! It didn’t ride on any tracks whatsoever. Instead it would stand up and walk with its 130ft long shoes!! That however is just a fraction of the size of the machine. You’re definitely going to want to see this!!!
