No, the T 282B isn't an android sent back in time to kill your mom. It's just really, really, really, really massive dump truck designed for mining operations. Interestingly, it operates much like GM's new hybrid concept, with a 3650-horsepower diesel cranking out the amps to spin a couple of Siemens electric motors. With a maximum capacity of 365,000 kilos of ore (how many kilos of coke is that?) it beats out its next-largest competitor by 20 metric tons. And would you believe it tops out at 40mph? That's enough momentum right there to raze Truth or Consequences, New Mexico in one pass.
