Belarusian BelAZ 75710 is the World’s Largest Dump Truck

Mining dump trucks are some of the coolest vehicles one can think of, simply because they tend to be built on a massive, scale dwarfing anything else on wheels. They have been able to grow large as they are most frequently kept off paved roads, and for their intended uses, bigger means better.

If you were ever wondering which of these metallic mastodons is the biggest in the world, we can now bring you a definitive answer: it’s the BelAZ 75710, with an aggregate weight of 810 tons and a carrying capacity of 450 tons. It’s a new model from the Belarusian company and being the biggest ever, it beats any other at carrying cyanide-filled debris out gold mines across the world…

Power comes from two 16-cylinder turbodiesel engines that together make 4,600 hp and a ridiculous amount of torque – 13,738 lb-ft / 18,626 Nm, while top speed is limited to 40 mph (64 km/h).

The record claim is not yet official, though, but company officials seem convinced that they will have no problem in getting it. Now do scroll down to see it in action, accompanied by commentary in the native tongue of the builders.
