The Caterpillar 797F mining truck is the world’s largest dump truck with a Gross Machine Operating Weight of 1.37 MILLION pounds. The behemoth of a machine measures 51 ft high, 50 ft long, and 32 feet wide and its largest area. It can also reach an impressive top speed of 42 miles per hour with a 1000 gallon fuel tank and can haul approximately 400 tons of material.
It’s an incredible machine and Caterpillar has created a time lapse video of how it’s built, which you can watch below. The pieces of equipment and robotics that it takes to build the truck might be just as impressive as the actual truck.
