While equipment built to accommodate urban environments, by generating less noise, vibrations and emission, became more common, super sized equipment that could withstand harsh working conditions in places like giant mines were also developed.
At mines in Australia, there was a discussion of renewing 13 large Dump trucks all together. Given that as a goal, they started developing 100-ton class dumps. It was based on HD785 and had upgraded tires and axle.
Besides in Australia, it was used at coalmines in Japan.
Load capacity: 100,000kg
The history of the dump truck as a transporting vehicle is also the history of increasing the amount of loading to improve productivity at construction sites. At mines especially, new technology is being introduced consistently even today. Enlarging the size by mechanical and electrical formulas, and adding the GPS control system are some of the examples.
