The world's strongest truck is the BelAZ-75710. It holds the world record for being the largest two-axle dumper truck. It is nearly the height of a house with tyres alone nearly four metres in diameter. It can shift more than 450 tonnes at a time, equivalent to 1,800 motorcycles. It has two 16-cylinder diesel engines dishing out as much power as twenty sports cars via four electric motors.
