In Australia, trucks have to travel long distances across rough country on a daily basis.
In the outback, the towns are so far apart, they use a special kind of truck. Several trailers are joined together to make one long road train.
The roads across the outback are straight and empty, perfect for Monster vehicles.
Here there are few railroads and only these giant trucks visit the remote mines and farms. Valuable resources are carried by the road train, from the center of the country to the more populated cities on the coast.
It’s not surprising; it’s an Australian mining company that operates the longest truck in the world.
This is the custom built 3B affectionately known as the centipede. It’s a 205 ton 160 foot-long rig. It has an 18 speed gearbox with a 550 horsepower engine and carries over a ton of fuel. It has 110 wheels on 28 axles.
The centipede transports zinc ore from a mine in the Northern Territory’s to a port hundreds of miles away. It works 24 hours a day 7 days a week. And in one year it can haul a quarter of million tonnes of ore.
Australians have come to rely heavily on these amazing machines and there are plans for even longer road trains in the future.
The mining company is so pleased with the performance of the centipede that they have built another one. Now there are two identical longest trucks in the world.
