Power Shovel

Andy | Friday, November 01, 2013 | Best Blogger Tips

I'm from an older generation and I think steam shovel was a much more romantic name than power shovel. This one is working on a new subdivision in Ajax, Ontario. Even though everyone here seems to agree that the governments of all levels have failed to build  a proper transportation infrastructure, urban spal continues.


  1. Great minds, that is the sort of angle I take photos of the shovles from. I can't ever remember seeing steam one in the UK pleanty of steam engines though but then they keep a load near me

  2. Nice shot! I'm a civil engineer, so I love construction equipment. One of my favorite childhood books was Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel.

  3. My grandson would prefer to call it a big dig dig!
