    It’s not a saw.. it’s a bucket-wheel excavator.
    Nothing big compared to Bagger 288

    Strip mining of any kind is ugly business.

      In modern countries they set aside the top layers of earth and when they are done mining they replace it leaving the land intact.

        You actually believe that BS. I can show you places in America that prove that’s simply not true.

    The correct English term is ‘bucket wheel excavator’. Although, from the side, it looks like a circular saw blade, each tooth is actually a bucket with a sloped back and no side. The teeth dig into the work face and scoop up the material. As the wheel rotates, the material falls backward into the bucket. Since there is no side, the sloped back guides the material sideways to fall onto a conveyor and it is carried away.

    Kinda like something from Star Wars.
