The biggest and most expensive mass-produced truck in the world is the German mining truck Liebherr T 282B.
The size of the monster inspire respect: its length is 14.5 meters, width 9 height of 7.4 m total machine weight – 592 ton nominal capacity – 363 tons. Despite this giant easy speed up 64.4 kmh Construction of its power plant is traditional for such trucks, the vehicle is driven by two electric motors (one for each rear wheel), here applied electrical system alternating current. coupled through electrotransfection Siemens-Liebherr AC with the most powerful diesel DDC/MTU 20V4000 V20 volume of 90 litres, capacity 3,650 horses.
