The largest excavating trencher: Krupp Bagger 288

Built by the German construction company Krupp, the Bagger 288 weighs 45,500 tonnes (Titanic weighed 46,328 tonnes) and is 311ft (95m) tall and 705ft (215m) long, the equivalent of two American football fields. This means that its top speed is just one-third of a mile per hour, and it costs US$100mn to build.
