"The most comprehensive source of basic excavation information available." -- Construction Methods & Equipment

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.

This fifth edition completely updates readers on the latest advances in equipment and operating techniques, as well as important new safety, regulatory, and environmental methods.

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.
