The Schwerer Gustav (Heavy Gustav). The fully assembled gun weighed nearly 1,350 tonnes ~1,224,700kg and could fire shells weighing 7t ~6,985kg a range of 47 km (29 miles). Schwerer Gustav was the largest calibre rifled weapon ever used in combat and, in terms of overall weight, the heaviest mobile artillery piece ever built. It fired the heaviest shells of any artillery piece.

Its intended use was to blow up the French Maginot Line at the outbreak of World War II, but it wasn't ready in time, and the attack through Belgium meant it was never needed for its original purpose. The size of the shells was staggering.

Wondered across an interesting 5 minute video which shows how one supermarket in South London UK uses bots.

I think this is the same place which had a massive fire a couple of months ago. It's since been rebuilt. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-57883332

It's perhaps a strange analogy, but the animation of the electric mining drills always reminds me of mosquitos sucking blood:

Bagger 293 is 96 metres (314.9 feet) tall (Guinness World Record for highest terrestrial vehicle, shared with Bagger 288). It is 225 metres (738.2 feet) long, weighs 14,200 tonnes (31.3 million pounds), and requires five people to operate. It is powered by an external power source providing 16.56 megawatts. The bucket-wheel itself is over 21.3 metres (69.9 feet) in diameter with 18 buckets, each of which can hold over 15 cubic metres (529.7 cubic feet) of material.

According to my estimation that external power source must contain at least 300 solar pannel maybe more if the machine is also powered at night.

Which is great, so that this excavator is powered with a low carbon emission power source. :mrgreen: [/troll]

Why are you moking me ? On Wikipedia they say Badger 293 is used in a lignite mine, if they were to put little solar pannel on the roof the the excavator they could do lignite mining without emiting carbon !

What triggers me the most is that they call it Badger 293, and it's 96 meters height, or 314.9 feet. Why not Badger 314 ? or Badger II-96 ?

They even put the number on it. Like if you are not sure which one it is, you can look at the number, to make sure it's not the 288 since it's the same size, if you happen to park them at the same location or someone else with the same model park his next to yours and you're lost.

A few comments: It's called "Bagger", not "Badger". It's pronounced in German exactly like the English "bugger".
It's the German word for excavator, so in English it would be called "Excavator 293". The naming convention "Bagger 293" is probably an owner-specific naming scheme from the owner company RWE Power (see the footer of the German wiki for Bagger 287: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bagger_287). According to the German wiki pages of these excavators, it's not a type name, it seems RWE Power numbered all their bigger excavators after they bought them, starting with 1 or 100 or whatever and reached 293 so far. It seems the older the excavator, the smaller the number. The company exists since 1898, so there is plenty of time.

Thank you for the clarification, there's badger plane that look nothing like badger i thought it was just a name given to big thing didn't noticed it was bagger which sounds like bag but bigger.

Also i am aware lignite is coal :)

I didn't know there was real plans to make a floating solar field in the area though. The wikipage of the Hambach surface mine is full of surprising details.
