BelAZ 75710


Two more Belaz 75710s are currently under construction. The price tag for anyone considering buying one; a little over $6m (£3.84m). The current holder of the Guinness World Records title for the largest dumper truck in the world is the US-built Liebherr T282B, which has a capacity of 363 tonnes

The BelAZ 75710 is an ultra class haul truck manufactured in Belarus by BelAZ. As of 2016, it is the world's largest, highest payload capacity haul truck.

The BelAz 75710 has a conventional two-axle setup but the wheels are doubled, four to an axle, like a scaled-up International Payhauler 350. For this reason it needs eight 59/80R63 tires.[1] It also has four-wheel drive and four-wheel hydraulic steering which is unusual. It has a turning radius of about 20 m (66 ft).

The 75710 can carry a 450 metric ton (496 short ton) load.[2] With an empty weight of 360 tonnes, it is much more heavily built than the previous model, which weighed 240 tonnes when empty.[3] It is 20.6 m (68 ft) long, 8.16 m (26.8 ft) high, and 9.87 m (32.4 ft) 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. These are coupled to two AC alternators and four AC traction motors (two in each axle).[4] Fuel consumption (according to company data) is 198 g/kWh per engine, with option to run on only one if carrying less than capacity loads. 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).[5] The complex propulsion system, in addition to the shallow bed, doubled tires, and very heavy empty weight, has led to concerns about operating efficiency.
