Are all dump trucks the same?

There are many different sizes, makes and models of dump truck that are used on different mine sites across Australia, although they all function relatively the same. The most common dump trucks are Caterpillar (CAT) and Komatsu.

Many mine sites use a wide range of dump trucks, some are new and some are older model trucks; some are diesel powered and some are electric/hybrids, however, their basic operation remains the same.
