Back Cover

Since 1955, Moving the Earth has stood as the standard source of practical know-how for the excavation and construction industries. Geared to the needs of the men and women who do the actual earthmoving, this is a book as massive as the tasks they perform -- 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.

This book 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.
