Less steel – more payload
January 18, 2019 6 min read
This heavy-duty mining truck has been equipped with an upgraded body manufactured from Hardox® 500 Tuf, Hardox® 450 and Strenx® 700, and designed without the need for wear liners or ongoing maintenance. The weight of the new dump body is reduced by 18.5 tonnes, increasing the maximum payload and offering improved productivity, while maintaining the same maximum vehicle weight. In addition to this, the life-time of the body is now 50% longer than the original, decreasing overall steel consumption and reducing the need for expensive liner replacement and overhauls.
