The steam shovel was the forerunner of all powered, single-bucket, dry land excavators and was the first machine successfully to replace the hand shoveller in loading wagons on construction sites. This book explains the workings of the machine and its application to the tasks demanded of it. ABOUT THE AUTHORPeter Manktelow spent his early working life as an engineering draughtsman. He later became involved in technical illustration and, as a natural spin-off and for light relief, he developed a fascination for past technical achievements."
