Watch the largest and baddest wheel loader in the world in action (video)

Weighing more than a Boeing 737, behold the L-2350 loader, the world's largest front end wheel loader. Built by LeTourneau company in Texas, this heavy duty machinery is primarily used to load minerals such as gold or ore for transport by dump trucks. Nothing compares to watching it in action in the video below. 
According to Extreme TV's YouTube page, the impressive stats this piece of machinery has include: 2300 horsepower, 16 cylinder 65.0 liters  4-cycle turbocharged aftercooler engine, and hydraulic lifting payload of 72 tons, to name a few. The machine, which took over 2 years to design and engineer, loads 50% more compared to previous models. 
How monstrous is this beast? The LeTourneau rep in the video below put it best, "We could dig an Olympic-size swimming pool in just a few scoops. I know we just have to be the envy of all the kids playing in their sandbox. We just happen to have the biggest sandbox and the biggest toy to play with."
