This Is The Largest Movable Machine In The World

Behold the largest movable machine in the world: The Overburden Conveyor Bridge F60 is more than half a kilometre long. At over 12,000 tonnes, it’s much larger than the Empire State Building, a Nimitz-class supercarrier or the Bagger 288, the previous record holder.

Used to carry brown coal in the open mines of Lusatia, Germany, the F60 is an amazing 502m x 80m x 240m.
