This one, a Krupp Bucket Wheel Excavator, isn't big, nor large, nor even huge. It's absolutely gargantuan!!! Something on the order of the size of an ocean liner. I don't have any specs on this machine, but that doesn't make it any less awesome to look at. I stood there trying to take it all in for quite a while.
