The history of earthmoving equipment is covered, and the basic motions and operations performed by these machines is explained so that the reader will also understand how they perform. Three general classes of earthmoving machinery are discussed: the power shovel, the scraper, and bulldozers and endloaders. These machines perform the same job in the same basic manner as the shovel.
