Caterpillar 793 is one of the biggest mining trucks built by the company. The tires are size 59/80R63 XDR, and made by Michelin at the cost of $42,500. for each. They stand at 13.22′ tall, and weigh 11,680 lbs per tire. The truck sells for about 5 million dollars. Check the size of these trucks. You can really tell how large it is when it passes a tractor trailer at the guard house. Then watch them pass full size pickups on the dirt road. Video was shot at Minntac, at Mountain Iron, MN. 10-2003

That’s a 793c early model. 150 cu yd spreader body for sanding haul roads in winter. We had 2 of those then, that was 594. That was shot when I was driving it from the Hoover construction repair yard in mt. iron mn to minntac. That body has ben re mounted now. Not sure what truck it’s on but I’m guessing still a 793c.
This is the LARGEST dump truck I ever filmed, and the link is the OLDEST dump truck I ever filmed. When is the last time you saw an unrestored, 1927 Indiana Motor Truck in opperation at an HCEA meet in Brownsville, PA.?
