World s Largest 450T Mining Dump Truck Launched Sets New Guinness Record

Belarusian mining equipment manufacturer Belaz wowed the entire industry by launching the world’s largest mining dump truck. The 450 tonne dump truck, which is called the 75170, didn’t just leave the industry breathless with its magnificence; it also set a new Guinness Record for being the largest dump truck in the world.

That the latest creation from the house of the Belarusian machinery manufacturer comes on its 65th birthday calls for a double celebration.

Powered by two 16-cylinder turbocharged diesel engines, this gigantic dump truck stands 27 feet tall and moves on eight wheels at a maximum speed of 64kmph.

The truck is capable of carrying an empty 360 tonne Belaz truck with a smaller 240 tonne truck of the same company in the back of that. Alternatively, the mining dump truck has enough space to accommodate 2.5 jumbo jets. The revolutionary design of the truck allows it to have a turning radius of less than 20 meters, which means less time gets wasted on turning around.

The truck, which is being field-tested at the Bachatsky open pit coal mine in Siberia known to have some of the harshest mining conditions in the world, will be available in the market next year.

Mining trucks have been getting bigger and bigger over the years. While the Belaz 75710 is by far the world's biggest dump truck and the latest to arrive, there are several others with large payload capacity that have been in service for the last few years.

Caterpillar commissioned its biggest mining dump truck and the second largest in the world Caterpillar 797F in 2009 with a payload capacity of 400t. Terex MT 6300AC with a payload capacity of 400t was introduced by the American manufacturer Terex in 2008.

Two more trucks that share the distinction of being the second largest dump trucks with with Caterpillar 797F and Terex MT 6300AC are Liebherr T 282C and Liebherr T 284. Both these trucks have a payload capacity of 400t.
