A comprehensive list of the world’s largest construction vehicles.

Here is a complete list of the 10 largest construction vehicles in the world, from the D8–774 mining dump truck to Komatsu’s D575A-3SD and Liebherr’s LTM11200 mobile crane.

  1. D8–774 is the world’s largest dump truck.

The D8–774 Mining Truck, introduced by Slovenian business ETF Mining Equipment in May 2018, is the world’s largest dump truck, with a payload capacity of 774 tonnes.

The vehicle has an 810-tonne gross operational weight. It has a loading height of 6.3 meters and a width of 7.6 meters. The truck’s entire length varies between 12.5 and 29 meters.

The D8–774 Mining Truck is completely electric (no diesel engines), and it harvests braking energy. The machine emits no carbon dioxide and produces very little noise.

2. The Komatsu D575A-3SD is the world’s largest bulldozer.

With an operational weight of 152 tonnes, a blade capacity of 69 m3, and a ground pressure of 159 kilopascals, the Komatsu D575A-3SD is the world’s largest bulldozer (kPa).

The machine has a 3.6m tall and 7.3m broad ‘Super Dozer’ blade that can move up to 127.5 tonnes of material in a single pass.

The Komatsu D575A-3SD has a 12-cylinder diesel engine that produces roughly 1,150bhp and weighs 114.5 tonnes.

3. ACCO Grader is the world’s largest motor grader.

The ACCO Grader, built by the Italian business Umberto in 1980, is the world’s largest grader. It was built for a Libyan client, but because of trade constraints, it never left Italy.

The 181-tonne grader, which had a 9-meter blade and a 7.3-meter length, featured two engines: one at one end that produced 1,000bhp and the other at the other end that produced 7,00bhp.

There were a total of 12 tires on the ACCO Grader. It was disassembled for scrap metal after that.

Caterpillar’s 24H, which debuted in the United States in 1996, is the only living holder of the title. The Cat 24H is around 15 meters long and weighs 62 tons.

4. Liebherr LTM11200 is the world’s largest mobile crane.

The LTM11200, manufactured by the German company Liebherr, is the world’s largest mobile crane, capable of lifting up to 1,200 tonnes.

The telescoping boom of the machine, which extends from 18.3 to 100 meters, is the longest ever installed on a mobile hydraulic crane.

The LTM11200 is driven by an 8-cylinder, water-cooled diesel engine with a maximum output of 500kW and a fuel tank capacity of 602 liters. The crane has nine axles and can travel at a top speed of 75 kilometers per hour.

5. The JCB 4CX-15 SUPER is the world’s largest backhoe.

The four-wheel steer 4CX-15 SUPER is not just JCB’s largest backhoe; it’s also the largest backhoe in the world.

It weighs 8.6 tonnes and has a top speed of 41.8 km/h, thanks to a JCB EcoMAX 109hp diesel engine.

The bucket on the 4CX-15 SUPER is 2.35m wide and produces 516NM of torque.

The 4CX-15 SUPER, like other JCB backhoes, comes with a 2-year/2,000-hour bucket-to-bucket transferrable warranty.

6. Caterpillar 6090 FS is the world’s largest excavator.
Without a doubt, Caterpillar’s 6090 FS is the largest construction excavator.
The excavator, which weighs 1,000 tonnes, is based on the Bucyrus RH400, which was acquired by Caterpillar in 2011.
The Cummins QSK60 diesel engines power the 6090 FS, which has a bucket capacity of 18.7 tonnes and generates 4,500bhp.
Its 52m3 shovel has a payload of 93.6 tonnes and loads the largest Caterpillar dump truck, the Cat 797, in just four passes.
7. P&H L-2350 is the world’s largest earthmover.
The P&H L-2350 (previously L-2350 loader), manufactured by Komatsu Limited, holds the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest earthmover.
The earthmover weighs 260 tonnes and has a bucket capacity of 14.3 tonnes. It is mostly used for surface mining.
It has a turbocharged 16-cylinder diesel engine that produces 2,300bhp.
8. Bagger 288 is the world’s largest excavating trencher.
The Bagger 288 (Excavator 288) is one of the world’s heaviest land vehicles, built by German business Krupp for the energy and mining company Rheinbraun.
The excavator is 96 meters tall (the same as the Statue of Liberty) and 225 meters long — the length of two American soccer fields.
Since 2001, the Bagger 288 has been working at the Garzweiler open-pit lignite mine. It was previously used to dig coal in the Hambach mine, which is roughly 20 kilometers away.
9. The Dynapac CC7200 is the world’s largest road roller.
The Dynapac CC7200 is the world’s largest tandem roller in terms of serial production.
The roller, which weighs roughly 17 tonnes and has a maximum force of 215kN, is meant to compact road surfaces.
The CC7200 is primarily utilized for high-efficiency compaction projects such as highways and runways. The roller produces 228 horsepower and has a top speed of 11 km/h.
10. The K-Tec 1254 ADT is the world’s largest pull scraper.
The K-Tec 1254 ADT, which also functions as an articulating dump truck, is the world’s largest earthmoving pull scraper, weighing 22.2 tonnes.
The 1254 ADT has a heaping capacity of around 40 tonnes and is designed to be pulled by a six-wheel-drive articulated dump truck with a capacity of 40 tonnes and 450 horsepower.
