288", worlds largest bucket wheel excavator. At least at the
time I had built this model, but I think it still is. Was back in
the press recently, when it was moved to a new location. So this
fascinating piece of machinery is still on duty in an open pit mine.
My model had the crawlers from the 856 bulldozer and some other
smaller rubber crawlers. Due to lack of parts, I had to use some
midsized technic wheels as "replacement crawlers".
