“She runs a massive 927-cubic-inch, 6-cylinder turbocharged donk under here,” Ron says above the roar.

“She’s got seven forward and two reverse gears,” he says, adding that this big rig can run at 55km/h on the flat.

The 32.8-tonner has a loading capacity of 38 tonnes, Ron says, and you can chuck a 23-cubic-metre payload in it.

Watch the video to see what Ron thinks of this Cat dump truck, which has about 9,500 hours on it, and read his full review here.
