The worlds largest wheel loader or loading shovel as we’d call it in Ireland

Here is a video showing an absolutely massive piece of machinery LeTourneau L-2350 loading shovel. This machine has a 16 cylinder 60 litre cummins engine with a power output of 2300 horsepower. It weighs 258 tons and can lift 72 tons but the biggest number of the lot is the price, at 1.5 million dollars you would want a very profitable mine to make the most of this machine.

Looking around the factory floor during this video you will see some other amazing large construction vehicles so keep an eye out.

If this was available as a 1:32 scale model it would probably be a very easy build as even at that scale it would be huge.

If you like these videos or can suggest a good 1:32 scale model for RC conversion shoot over to the RC Tractors Forum and let us know. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the RC Tractors website for changes as they happen.
