World ' s Largest Digging Machine.
This machine is the largest digging machine in the world. The bucket-wheeler
excavator named Bagger 288 (Excavator 288)
Is built by the German company Krupp. More specifically, it is a mobile strip
mining machine. It is the largest tracked vehicle
In the world at 13,500 tons. However, Bagger is powered from an external source
and is more correctly described as a mining
Machine which can be moved, while the crawler-transporter was built as a
self-powered, load-carrying vehicle.

3. Crawler-Transporter : 2nd Largest Tracked
Vehicle in the World.
The Crawler-Transporter is a tracked vehicle used to transport the Saturn V
rocket, the Saturn IB rocket during Skylab and
Apollo Soyuz, and now the Space Shuttle. It was designed by Bucyrus
International and built by the Marion Power Shovel Co.
At a cost of US$ 14 million each. When they were built, they were the largest

German industrial company
TAKRAF. It holds the record for the largest terrestrial vehicle in human
history. It is used in Australia for removing over-
Burden from a brown coal mine in Victoria . It is also recognized as the

earth per day.
5. Overburden Conveyor Bridge F60 : World ' s Largest Machine That Can Move.
This is the world ' s largest machine that can move. It was shut down after 13
months of operation due to energy and
Political reasons. The cutting height is 60 meters, hence the name F60. With a
length of 502 meters, it is described as
The "lying Eiffel Tower ". F60 is the series designation of five
overburden conveyor bridges used in brown coal (lignite)
Opencast mining in Germany . They are the largest movable technical industrial
machines in the world.

Hadron Collider : World ' s Largest and Highest-energy Particle Accelerator.
This is the largest machine in the world with a length of 27 km the Large
Hadron Collider (LHC). It is the largest and
Highest-energy particle accelerator in the world intended to collide opposing
particle beams. It was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research
(CERN) for testing various predictions of high-energy physics. It lies beneath
Franco-Swiss border near Geneva , Switzerland . It is funded by and built in collaboration
with over 10,000 scientist and
Engineers from over 100 countries as well as hundreds of universities and

7. BHC SR-N4
Mk-3 : World ' s Largest Non-military Hovercraft.
This mammoth machine is the world ' s largest hover to date. BHC SR-N4, as
shown above, is the world ' s largest non-
military hovercraft, carrying 418 passengers and 60 cars. A hovercraft, or
air-cushion vehicle (ACV), is a craft, designed
to travel over any smooth surface supported by a cushion of slowly moving,
high-pressure air, ejected downwards against
the surface below, and contained within a "skirt." Hovercrafts are
used throughout the world because they are unique
among all forms of transportation in their ability to travel equally well over
land, ice, and water.
8. Typhoon : World ' s
Largest Submarine Class Ever Built.
This machine is the largest submarine class in the world ever built. It is a
ballistic missile carrying, nuclear-powered
submarine (SSBN). This large machine was deployed by the Soviet navy in the
1980s. With a maximum displacement
of 26,000 tons, Typhoons are the largest class of submarine ever built. In its
day it was one of the most feared weapons
of mass destruction ever made. Technically, it is capable to successfully
deploy long-range nuclear weapons. The cost
of operations for the Typhoon submarines was so high that the Russian Navy
retired all but one of them.
9. Emma Maersk : World ' s
Longest Container Ship Ever Built.
This huge vessel is the longest container ship ever built in the world and as
of 2008 - it is the longest ship in use. It is
able to carry around 11,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) which is about
1,400 more containers than any other ship
is capable of carrying.
10. Knock Nevi ' s : World ' s Largest Ship Ever Constructed.
This machine is the largest supertanker. It is also the largest machine that
can move long distance . The Knock Nevis
is a floating storage and offloading unit (FSO) owned by the Fred Olsen
Production of Norway. It was previously a supertanker
and as such held the record for the world ' s largest ship. The vessel is longer
