I have one of those in my garage. Not very good with gas milage but sure does help when I need to get a little gardening done! :P

I saw a discovery documentary thing on these beasts. Theyre pretty insane.

-EDIT-
Youtube to the rescue!

I read about this machine several months back on Wikipedia (I remember it is the only machine larger than NASA's crawler-transporters).  The interesting thing is it doesn't look like it should even be able to balance itself (the trailer-thingy connected to it may act as a counter weight).  Even so, it looks like it will still tip over sideways. :o

Now if they made it manless or even autonomous, it would be the ultimate strip-minner (manless mining, tell it were to dig and it will extract all the resources for you).
