The World's Biggest Truck
Several months ago, I told you about a monster truck able to carry a payload of 190 tons. Compared with the new T 282 B from Liebherr, this was a baby. This new mining truck can carry about 360 tonnes (400 tons) at 64 km/h.

New Scientist interviewed its designer, Francis Bartley, who says that such a truck costs US$3 million and that the worldwide market for these trucks doesn't exceed 75 units per year. He adds that this is an unconventional truck. It has a 2723-kilowatt diesel engine which powers two electric motors, making the T 282 B the biggest AC drive truck.

If you like big toys, you'll enjoy this interview. More details are available in this overview, which includes a stunning photograph of a man standing next to a T 282 B mining truck.
