144 tonnes on 10 axles

Getting this much mass on just ten axles is quite a feat. Regulations and safety concerns, as well as infrastructure capacity usually makes operators go for more axles to spread the mass out better. This truck is also doing it with just 540 hp from the 16 litre engine, and working in snow and ice conditions, not a bad effort at all!

 

Here in Australia we like a lot more axles and a lot more power. This truck and trailer set have the second engine on the third trailer and 24 axles on the ground

 

There seems to be a much more relaxed way of thinking for these mine trucks in Kalimantan, Indonesia.
