About This Item

BiggestTruckInWorld

In the fall of 2015 we took a trip from Texas to the northwest.  We made stops in Wyoming, Montana, Alberta and British Columbia.  I am always on the lookout for things to convert to travel bugs.  This bug is one such item.

The default photo is of the 6’3” bug owner standing next to the Terex Titan, the biggest truck in the world.  The Terex 33-19 Titan was a prototype off-highway, ultra class, rigid frame, three-axle, diesel/AC electric powertrain haul truck designed by the Terex Division of General Motors.  It was assembled at General Motors Diesel Division's London, ON, Canada assembly plant in 1973.  Only one 33-19 was ever produced and it was the largest, highest capacity haul truck in the world for 25 years.  After 13 years in service, the 33-19 was restored and is now preserved on static display as a tourist attraction in Sparwood, BC, Canada.

General Motors developed the Titan in response to the need for more efficient haul trucks by open pit mine operators.  GM believed that a general decrease in mineral ore quality combined with a projected need to mine tar shale and tar sands would increase the quantity of ore hauled by surface mine operators' trucks, worldwide.  The Titan was the largest in the Terex 33 series of off-road haul trucks, which also included the 33-03, 33-05, 33-07, 33-09, 33-11 and the 33-15.  The 33-19 "Titan" and the 33-15 both used diesel/AC electric powertrains, while the other, smaller members of the 33 series of haul trucks used mechanical powertrains.
