Re: World's Biggest Truck


From what I understand, The Terex Titan, the one you have pictured, IS "The Largest Truck in the World".

350 Tons - if you are talking 1/2 ton trucks - compacted or full size?

Nope - Try the Liebherr T282B and the Caterpillar 797B @ 400 tons capacity

The titan is much longer than most of the newer trucks at 66 feet... the others come in around 47

Hmm... if they make a hybrid version, I can see it as the next Hummer for the Clueless Set.

But... I'm not stopping to help change a tire on that thing no matter how short her skirt is. She can just call the auto club.

Re: World's Biggest Truck


It's embarrassing that I live in the same country as that idjit!

I worked at a mine in BC once, and they had a 3/4 ton pu that had been backed over by one of their electrohauls, that thing was squashed to about 12" tall. Looked like a big potato chip. They kept it on site to remind people who has the 'right of way'!
