Tracked Dump Truck Rotates 360 Degrees

Posted June 15, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Functionality is the key word for a new generation rubber track crawler that boasts the first ever rotational dumping body. The entire upper frame is attached to the bottom chassis and tracks by a mechanism that allows it to rotate a full 360 degrees, much like the turret on a tank. The heavy-duty, Tier 4 engine-equipped machine is said to accommodate up to 28,000 lbs of material which it can dump at any position even if the machine is moving. Get the whole scoop from Engineering360.
