Trucks and Diggers by Margaret Parrish

Trucks and Diggers showcases some of the hardest-working vehicles around, from 'big rigs' and bulldozers to snow blowers and backhoes. The most impressive features and feats of each truck are highlighted, while action photos show the trucks hard at work. There are 'Stats & Facts' boxes loaded with technical details, a glossary that explains specific terminology and technology and a 'Did you know?' section that includes little-known facts about each truck, digger and work vehicle. Find out about...A monster Oshkosh blower that can shift over 5,000 tonnes of snow an hour. The Peterbilt 379 road truck, a truck with a bedroom in the back. The Mack road train, a beast used to haul goods across the deserts of Australia. A giant Komatsu bulldozer that tears up ground in mines and quarries around the world.
