The Biggest Wheel Loader in The World -LeTourneau L-2350

The L-2350 loader from American earthmoving machinery manufacturer LeTourneau Inc. holds the Guinness World Record for Biggest Earth Mover.

Either LeTourneau built an even bigger one or this one can get a bigger bucket because I had seen a 70 cubic yard scooper on another video.

I’m sure someone can load the bucket, even though the 50 some yards is just gonna be tough to do. It looks like a waste of size. Unless pushing dirt downhill short hauls.

The L-2350 is a good machine. I still prefer the CAT992 though because of size, maneuverability and available options. Still there is no denying that the 2350 does have a wow factor. To put this in perspective. A 2350 could push a Komatsu dozer aside.

Though only about 100 ton difference between the two machines, the 2350 far and exceeds the dozer in terms of shear brute size, strength and power. If you chained a 575 to a 2350, the 2350 would drag the 575 all around. Yes, it’s that freaking big and that freaking powerful.
