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.
This super sized Dump truck was jointly developed with the United States mainly for large scale mining projects, and it was the biggest working dump in Japan at the time. It could load and carry 150 tons of soil at one time, which is equivalent of the amount 14 Dump trucks with the size allowed on public roads carry.
Load capacity: 148,700kg
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.
