A month or 2 ago I was dropping my fiancee to her office and on the way I saw a big truck (some 16 wheels with a big load) and I started admiring it. She noticed & exclaimed "Why the hell are you looking at a truck now? do you want to buy it or something???" to which I replied "not buy but wouldn't mid driving it just for fun". Her expression on that was more like "stay away from me you truck driver"

like i said the 44.502 you see in the picture has a TORQUE CONVERTER !
it is a speacial order truck from MAN . hte specs you looking up from the internet is not of this one but of a standard one .
this kind of prime mover is in the region of 300000 euros plus .

speed is irrelevant . this truck with full counterweight can go upto 120 kmh. no trailer ofcourse . with a trailer it would never be allowedto go over 20 kmph because of indian roads .

if you really are interested in really powerful primovers pls look up nicolas tractomas . they are made to order in france by nicolas . available as 10x10 ,1000 hp . one might be comin to india soon ;-)

An old reviewing; Mr.Mad, has Nicolas Tractomas landed in Indian soil? Please update.

Here is some thing intereting for the heavy truck enthusiasts http://www.pesanti.it/rivista/rivista7gb.pdf

Default 114 wheel truck

I have never seen a truck with so many wheels. It had 114 wheels. Just wonder what's the load.

Imagine the number of spare tyres he would need on a long road trip

Someone in my family is in the transportation business and owns a truck with 364 tyres!! If I drop by his place in the near future, will be sure to get a picture out of him.

I have seen One such Tetra Truck around 2-3 yrs back in Delhi . they were carrying two Army tanks and were stuck at a Flyover , deciding whether to go above the flyover or below , Don,t remember the No of tyres though , but Bonnet was equal to HUMMER ..that;s for sure ...and there were 2 persons , giving directions to the drivers ....

I will post pics of ODC which I have taken later today. Man the trailer was carrying a load of 808000 kg that is 808 metric tonne on the Bikaner Jaipur Highway. The machine was manufactured by L&T. It blocked the highway causing a huge traffic chaos. Everyone waited behind the truck for close to an hour. there were of 3 such trailers each pulled by 2 Volvo pullers

Whoa! Thats a whopper of a load indian12r.
Even a combined 1000+ hp of the two 520hp prime movers must be insufficient to move 808 tonnes+weight of trailer this at anything other than a crawl.
Which was the transport company which was moving this ? I guess there are very few such specialised co.s here which undertake such transport "projects". This(link) is one such company.

Wow. 520hp engine on the truck? What kind of engines do they run? and what is the huge box behind the cabin, Does it also house any engine components?
