The Little Book of Diggers is a 128 page hardback book of black and white and colour photographs trading the history of the digger from its early days when diggers were known as steam shovels right through to the advanced machines in production today. The book takes a look at the various kinds of digger from micro diggers that will fit through a domestic doorway right up to enormous drag lines that work in mines throughout the world and all kinds and sizes of digger in between. The Little Book of Diggers is a celebration of some of the names that have become synonymous with digging equipment including among many others JCB, Caterpillar, Ruston Bucyrus, Komatsu and Liebherr and it follows the history of the various companies as they have come to develop more and more sophisticated machines. It shows how takeovers and mergers have resulted in the loss of many names and how the industry has had to streamline itself. Finally, there is a look at what the future holds for these machines as the various manufacturers have the challenging task of making them more comfortable for the operator, cost efficient and less polluting than ever before.
