Default Pics: Massive 240 ton Belaz truck in India

This is a 220-240 ton dumper being used by THRIVENI EARTHMOVERS at Polavaram, Andhra Pradesh . It from the Ukranian company BELAZ. There are 120 ton Belaz dumpers being used in Maharashtra, but this is the first Belaz 200 ton + being used in India.

The largest 200 ton + fleet in India is operated by Reliance Power in Sasan, and the makes are of Terex if I'm not mistaken.

Engine
Type 4 stroke, direct injection diesel
Aspiration Turbocharged, Intercooled
Rated power @ 1900 rpm 1716 kW (2300 HP)
Maximum torque @ 1500 rpm 9054 Nm (This is 7 times the torque of the diesel engine on the Volvo B9R bus. )
Number of cylinders: 16 V-type
Bore x Stroke 159 x 190 mm
Displacement 60 lit

Min turning radius 15 M (That's two Rolls Royce Phantoms parked one behind another !)

Picture creds go to a political party's FB page.

There is a titanic excavator, I'm sure it's just as interesting as well .

That's humongous!
I'm wondering how they were transported to this location.

Most probably the CKD route and assembled onsite.
That is how it is usually done for earthmovers and heavy equipment's.

I guess this is the 7530x model. I mean look at the size of it, pretty much like a 2-3 storey apartment on wheels. Looks like a Goliath but still isn't the largest Belaz has manufactured. The 7571x is currently the largest mining truck in the world with around 500 tonnes capacity (IIRC).

See the 2.40 mark to get a perspective of the size.

Yes that's right. This is the largest truck in the world. I think there was a documentary on discovery, where one of these Behemoths was being driven by a lady driver. They even took an interview of hers in it but then it was long time back. So I don't recollect which model it was.

Back in the past I was just googling in my free time for some terms like "fastest car/bike, Longest truck/bus, largest truck/bus, most powerful truck/bus" etc. and that's where I stumbled upon these. Came across a pic of a driver standing alongside the wheel and the sheer size got me intrigued to read more about these engineering marvels.

Wow that's huge. I wonder if it's really that easy to drive. They probably would be loads of buttons, toggle switches for various task, a gazillion indicators etc. Would love to see a size comparison with the airbus 380. I guess the cost of this truck would be 1 crore and above.

The 100 Tonners themselves cost $ 5 Mn, which is ~3.5 Cr. Monsters like these and Cat 793s are even more expensive, based on the country and the duties.

By the way, a Volvo B7R easily crosses one crore price tag when it rolls off the showroom floor!

I got an opportunity to drive a 35 tonne CAT dumper and 85 Tonne BEML dumper in Singereni Coalfields in then A.P.( Near Kothagudem in khammam Dist), some 16 years ago.

That it self was a mesmerizing experience.
The response to the ignition key and the ease at which the steering response was just unbelievable.
Then comes the ease of driving. It was like a M800 with Autobox.
I was allowed to drive for only a KM though..

I really felt so proud to be a Mechanical Engineering sophomore then.
Now, I can imagine the fun this driver might be having.

Excuse me! Let me lift my jaw from the floor!
This is H.U.G.E.! Is this truck rather locomotive allowed on roads? It can easily occupy 3-4 lanes blocking everything possible.
60 Ltr engine and that torque figure is unbelievable!

Which currency you are quoting. $ (USD)? 5 Mn USD is ~33 Crores (Rs)..

I have had the opportunity to ride in a BEML 60T dumper in the Dhanbad mines. This 200T monster must completely dwarf the 60T. The BEML 60T has a Cummins 12000L engine and an Allison automatic transmission.

These trucks are pretty simple from the actual driving point of view since they come with automatic transmissions and assisted everything from steering to brakes. Getting used to the mega size must be a different thing all together.

Another funny thing is the size of the drivers cabin which is really small for such a big vehicle. There is just about enough space for the driver and it was a struggle to make myself even decently comfortable in there !

As per the local news papers these machines were brought here in parts and assembled. It took 30 days to assemble these machines. More info from local news paper.

The excavator (white one): Leibherr Germany
Costs around Rs 70 crores,
Transportation cost itself is Rs 4 crores,
Bucket capacity is 35 cubic meters,
It can dig 20-25K cubic meters per day.

The dumper: Belaz
Capacity is 280 tons.
Total 5 such dumpers were brought for the Polavaram project.

As a matter of fact they really are easy to drive. Yes size is a question but then they dont need to get on to actual roads or park in cramped spaces on the roads

It isnt and thats why you dont see a registration number on them. They are just used around mines and that's why they are also called as Haul Trucks (mainly mining) or Dump trucks (other than mining)
