The World's Biggest Truck
One of the world's biggest trucks can be found in the huge coal mines in Wyoming and Australia, copper mines in Chile, in iron extraction in South Africa and in gold mines in Nevada.
So how big is big?
This monster mining truck weighs in at 203 tonnes (when empty), and measures 24 foot 3 inches (7.4 metres) tall over the canopy, 47 feet 6 inches (14.5 metres) long with a wheelbase of 21 foot 6 inches (6.6 metres).
It can carry loads of 365 tonnes, so when loaded that's an overall weight of 568 tonnes!
This is also no ordinary truck. Instead of one huge engine powering the wheels, there is a 3650-horsepower (2723-kilowatt) diesel engine generating power for two electric motors in the rear axles, making this the biggest AC drive truck in the world!
