What we have here is a video of transporting one of those gigantic Caterpillar 797 mining trucks in the Chilean desert, from part of it to another, and the reason why it is being `carried away` on this way, by another truck, is because it would do a lot of damage to the asphalt on the road, so being `towed` like this, it distributes its weight much better, so the damage is minimal. We still can`t believe that a behemoth like this Caterpillar 797 mining truck can be transported by another truck! When you see the size difference between the towing trucks and the Caterpillar 797 you will be stunned! The Caterpillar 797 mining truck is a well-known haul truck that offers one of the highest payload capacities in the world. To be more precise, this gigantic ultra-class truck can carry up to 400 short tons! Although it is only a video of it, you can still see just how incredibly GIGANTIC this thing is!
We do not know about you, but we have always been impressed by these ultra – huge and gigantic trucks that are working the mines, and from the very first time we have seen it, we wanted to see how it feels to be inside the cabin of such a monster. We mean, we`re not one of those typical monster trucks addicts, but this really is something different. To us, it looks like a survival from the ancient world for which we only listen and know from the old stories, such as the ones from the Greek mythology. We imagine it to be part of that world of the Titans, world of fantasies and ideas. So watching it here on the video, it really gets us going and gives us an adrenalin rush. See what we`re talking about.
