This is a Liebherr 282 Haul truck. They weigh approzimately 400 tons and are powered by a v16 turbo detroit diesel with approzimately 3800 hp. The motor drives a generator that runs two 1500 hp ac electric motors, one for each rear drive wheel. They are equipped with 4 caliper (four seperate calipers) disk brakes on the front brakes that are used only for emergency and parking. If used to stop the vehicle they have to be replaced. The front suspension is double a arm with struts. The rear is a live axle. The motion arresting brakes are actually regenerative electric, by running the motors backwards they act as brakes and generators. To deal with the electricity created, there is a huge heat sink on the right side of the platform. They are capable of hauling 400 tons of whatever at speeds up to 45 mph (on a flat smooth surface like pavement). They have about 25 of these at the gold mine I work at. What's really impressive is the electric shovels used to load them.
