    More photos for your enjoyment!!

    In one shot we see operator Michael Lyne at the controls, these shots were taken by a professional photographer from Komatsu for use in a calender and were kindly given to me by Michael.

    I didn't know that they made 50ton articulated haul trucks? How come we only have 40ton trucks here?

    50t Adt

    Hey Traxs

    Bell has prodused these for some years now. I belive they are sold as Deere in the states.
    Moxy is introducing a 50t at Bauma in april. Orderbooks is full for their modell.

    A local contractor has 4 Bell 50t on a project here in Norway, and they are huge.
    I've spent time in the A35, but the 50t is bigger. You can sit in a summerchair and have lunch on the side of the enginehood.
    Have a nice day!

    That surprised me too. I'll bet it has something to do with the fact that the machine is used exclusively for digging that clay...

    They only have 40T on the deere website...I guess North America doesn't get it!

    It looks like there is some rock there he is digging in. My guess that the 4 teeth would give more pressure on each tooth to break up rock a little easier.

    It’s not really rock I don't think more like sand stone. We have it out here its a clay and sand and its mix hell on teeth.
