World's Largest Truck

On our recent trip to BC Lloyd and I stopped at the mining town to Sparwood to see what they claimed was the biggest truck in the world...and it was huge!

This truck is 26 ft. high and 51 ft. long, weighing 660 tons.  It can carry a load of 400 tons wit a 3,750 horsepower engine.
On it's display pad at the mining museum

I'm 5'2" and not half as tall as the tires

Lloyd can easily stand under the bed of the truck

I thought I had heard that the giant trucks used in the Athabasca Oil Sands in Ft. McMurray, Alberta, were the largest in the world so I went on line to check out the Titan's claim and found that the Sparwood Titan Terex is indeed the world's largest truck.

It's on the must be true!!!

That certainly is a BIG truck. I've seen a few almost that big in the copper mines in Utah. Aren't they grand! It makes you feel so small and dainty beside them. Interesting that that's the biggest in the world. Look at you seeing important things, lady.
