Since 1955, MOVING THE EARTH has stood as the standard
source of practical expertise for the Excavation and Construction
Industries. Geared to the needs of those who do the actual
earthmoving, this is a book as massive as the tasks it details-an
all-encompassing guide that covers every aspect of site preparation
and management, and that details every machine and vehicle needed to
perform each task.
The New Sixth Edition--the first in twenty
years--completely updates all the information to cover the latest
advances in equipment and operating techniques, as well as important
safety and environmental issues.
From clearing the land to tunneling beneath
it...from old-fashioned hand leveling to highly accurate laser
alignment...from freeing a tractor from the mud to basic bookkeeping
to keep your costs from bogging down...this book explains how to do
it correctly and efficiently.
For the small contractor, the foreman, and the
operator--as well as the engineer, the architect, the
superintendent, and the student--Moving the Earth is a professional
accessory as indispensable as your hard hat.
