Big Brutus

Saves: 10
Check-ins: 3
This mechanical shovel stands an amazing 160 feet tall and weighs 11 million pounds. In 1962, Big Brutus cost 6.5 million. While many of you may think that's a hefty pricetag, the price today would be about 51 million bucks. Now a museum site, Big Brutus is a dedication to coal miners and their history in Kansas.
