2010 Heavy Equipment Calendar – Click above for image gallery

Sure, there's a Porsche calendar and a Mini calendar, but what if you're the kind of enthusiast who likes the bigger things in life – and we mean really big. Like, industrial-mining and earth-moving big. If so, then the 2010 Heavy Equipment Calendar is for you. The folks at Baumaschinen24 spent four months all over Europe capturing some of the biggest objects man has ever built , such as the Terex O&K RH120-E Mining Excavator, in slinky, naked, dirt-flinging poses.

As with the date-keepers from Pirelli et al, there's quite a bit of airbrushing. Still, as a symbol of what went into it, its makers call it "THE Construction Equipment Calendar," to distinguish it from all those other construction calendars you've been eying. It's available now for €29.80 ($44.69 U.S.), and make sure you check out the 'Making of' section at the site. Sports Illustrated, watch out... Hat tip to Jens.

      45 bucks?! Umm... what is stopping me from, say, downloading these, printing them out and hanging them on the wall?

        It sure is, but for some reason the image of plus-sized Lane Bryant models mud-wrestling popped into my head first. But this works too.

      Alright, that's pretty awesome.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Good, but clearly the photos are not real, the back ground is not real.

      Man, i'd love to work on that heavy equipment.

      It might be me, I am no tree huger, but two of those pics do not seem environmentally correct. Dumping in water, destroying a forest. Hmmmmmmmm
        • 5 Years Ago
        I agree, I thought the picture for April was horrific!

        This is anti-environmental pornography.

      Now that's an awesome calendar! I'd buy that, but not for $45. I'll just wait until February when they're three bucks like all the other calendars.

        3 of 12 months Caterpillar isn't too bad. D7E Dozer (electric drivetrain) has my mouth watering for November. Nice Shanghai skyline in the background too -- but almost certainly not where the picture was taken.

        More CATERRPILLAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      • 5 Years Ago
      NSFW :)
