BELAZ 75710 - The Biggest Dump Truck in the World.

Imagine a machine so colossal it could haul 450 tons of rock – that’s the equivalent of two and a half Blue Whales! This isn’t science fiction, gearheads, this is the awe-inspiring reality of the BELAZ 75710, the undisputed king of dump trucks. This behemoth is designed to meet the world’s ever-growing need for raw materials, redefining what’s possible for heavy machinery…

Origin and Innovation

Founded in 1948, the Belarusian Autoworks (BelAZ) is headquartered in Zhodino, Belarus. A leader in heavy equipment manufacturing, BelAZ specializes in large-scale mining and construction vehicles. The company’s reputation is globally recognized. Its flagship model, the BELAZ-75710, debuted in 2013. This vehicle highlights the company’s engineering prowess with its impressive load capacity and innovative hybrid propulsion system.

Capacity and Power

The BELAZ 75710 boasts astonishing technical prowess. Powered by two 16-cylinder turbocharged diesel engines, it delivers approximately 4,600 horsepower, literally moving mountains. Its all-wheel drive and massive 4-meter-high tires conquer the toughest terrains, from deep mines to rugged construction sites.

Hybrid Drive Innovation

The BELAZ 75710, an enormous mining truck, sets itself apart with an innovative diesel-electric hybrid system. Two diesel engines power electric generators, which in turn drive electric motors in the wheels. This allows for efficient fuel conversion and superior control over the truck’s power and torque – crucial for the massive loads it hauls. The hybrid system offers higher efficiency and performance with reduced environmental impact compared to traditional diesel-only engines.
