Meet the world's biggest truck


This gargantuan of a truck is hard to describe, but put it this way, imagine standing on the terrace of your duplex house and driving the entire building down the road.

The biggest truck in the world is neither a Volvo nor a Ford, not even a Mack truck with a double trailer. The real monsters are mining trucks that stand more than 21 feet tall and 48 ft long. 

Caterpillar 797F Mining Truck, which weighs more than one million pounds (453,592 kilograms) and can carry and dump more than 300 tons of material in the back. These mining trucks produce about 4,000 horsepower to move all that mass and travel at a maximum speed of 67 kmph.

  1. Wow! That truck is very cool! Actually, I saw this kind of model of truck, moving by the heavy hauling services company using kenworth w900 on a long and big trailer with lots of escorts. I think moving this kind of heavy truck need lots effort, because the weight of it is very huge or heavy.Anyway, thanks for sharing this great information to all of us.
