BelAZ 75710 is the world’s world’s largest, highest payload capacity dump truck.
The 75710 can carry a 450-tonne (440-long-ton; 500-short-ton) load. With an empty weight of 450 tonnes (440 long tons; 500 short tons), it is much more heavily built than the previous model, which weighed 240 tonnes (240 long tons; 260 short tons) when empty. It is 20.6 m long, 8.16 m high, and 9.87 m wide. The bed is relatively shallow, limiting the volume of material that can be carried.
Instead of a single-engine, the Siemens MMT 500 drive system is powered by two MTU 65-litre 16-cylinder four-stroke diesel engines, each with 2,300 horsepower (1,700 kW). These are coupled to two AC alternators and four AC traction motors (two in each axle. Fuel consumption (according to company data) is 198 g/kWh (1.94 oz/MJ) per engine, with the option to run on only one if carrying less than capacity loads. The maximum speed is 64 km/h (40 mph), and economy maximum speed (when fully loaded and on a 10% gradient) is 40 km/h (25 mph).
