Haul trucks are off-highway, rigid dump trucks specifically engineered for use in high-production mining and heavy-duty construction environments.
Most haul trucks have a two-axle design, but two very well known models from the 1970s, the 350T Terex Titan and 235T Wabco 3200/B, had three axles.  Haul truck capacities range from 40 short tons (36 t) to 496 short tons (450 t).
Large quarry-sized trucks range from 40 to 100 tons. A good example of this is the Caterpillar 775 (rated at 70 short tons (64 t)). Quarry operations are typically smaller than, say, a gold/copper mine, and require smaller trucks.
