Unlike on-road trucks, off highway trucks are specifically designed to work in punishing environments and are made to haul material and debris around a work site. These purpose-built vehicles are not constrained by the weight limits of their smaller on-road counterparts. Off highway trucks typically feature a front driving axle and ride on 63-inch tires. The largest off highway mining trucks stand more than two stories tall, boast diesel engines that weigh as much as 25,000 pounds, have as many as 12 turbochargers, and make more than 10,000 lb-ft of torque. To support payloads of up to 400 tons, these massive haulers have frame widths and depths that are measured in feet, not inches. Some of the largest off highway mining trucks are manufactured by Komatsu, Liebherr, Hitachi, Terex and Caterpillar.
Like the haulers she appeared alongside a year ago to highlight their power, strength and reliability, Ali Crawford only gets better.
Roughly nine months after reaching the 4.4-billion-ton autonomously hauled milestone, trucks equipped with Cat MineStar Command for hauling have now moved more than 5.5 billion tons.
The new Cat 789 Mining Truck builds on a legacy of proven performance to offer efficiency gains, the next generation of cab comfort and cutting-edge connectivity.
As Grote Industries enters its 121st year of operation, the family announced recently that fourth-generation family members Dominic, John and Mike Grote acquired 100 percent control of Grote Industries Inc.
Does your operation need an efficient 150 ton haulage solution that can deliver performance on grade while providing energy-saving technologies to help achieve lower fuel consumption? Komatsu's rigid frame off-highway haul truck, the HD1500-8E0, is purpose-built for mining, quarry and aggregate applications.
Crews from Teichert Construction are wrapping up work on the California Department of Transportation's (Caltrans) Yuba 20 Corridor Roadway Projects.
Keeping one of the biggest construction equipment stories of 2021 under wraps was not an easy task, so how did Paul Douglas, managing director at Rokbak, and his team keep the rebranding of Terex Trucks a surprise for so long? The answer lies in good old-fashioned hard work from a dedicated and highly-skilled team.
The RA30 articulated hauler from Rokbak is an ideal choice on quarries, construction sites and infrastructure developments.
Rokbak specializes in articulated haulers — and with a maximum payload of 41.9 tons, the RA40 is the biggest one it manufactures.
It was during the 2008 Great Recession that the Brent crude oil price last reached the lofty high experienced this year, and with demand to continue to outstrip supply the switch to less thirsty heavy equipment is in the spotlight more than ever before.
