‘World’s largest’ electric drive dump truck
By Andy Brown23 March 2022
XCMG has produced what it says is the world’s largest-tonnage alternating current (AC) electric drive dump truck.
The 440 tonne mining truck – which is said to have more than 60 invention patents – is customised for high-end mining markets such as South America, North America, and Australia.
The XDE440 has a load capacity of 400 tons, which is close to the height of a three-story building, setting a record for the highest load capacity of a rear-drive rigid mining truck in the world.
In order to meet the load requirements of 400 tons, XCMG says that it has independently developed the world’s largest output torque wheel reducer and the world’s strongest wet disc brake, which can effectively alleviate the problem of tight mining capacity.
The company says it has carried out more than 80 special designs and professional service plans according to the field conditions, and successfully completed the R&D and production tasks.
XCMG has a full range of mining equipment industries including 70-700 tonne mining excavators, 30-440 tonne dump trucks, 100-6000t/h crushing and screening machinery, and 350-550hp motor graders.
