The Metso Outotec MTB – an all-encompassing truck body

Metso Outotec launched its innovative Mining Truck Body (MTB) back in 2019; and while since then it has been an interesting ride – dealing with pandemic supply chain interruptions and operating in a highly competitive space against advanced light steel and other rubber offerings – the solution is now quickly gaining traction in the mining market.

Notably, it has now been installed on all major mining truck classes from 40 ton to 400 ton (363 t); the latter running on the Liebherr T 284 at a major copper mine in the Americas. It has also been used across most major commodities – this includes in Australian coal on the Caterpillar 793, in addition to all the major hard rock metal mine types.

Other examples include installation on the 313 t Caterpillar 795F AC trolley trucks and 290 t Komatsu 930E trucks at Boliden’s Aitik copper mine and on Hitachi EH3500 trucks at Terrafame’s Sotkamo nickel mine in Finland. In smaller truck classes, applications have included working closely with truck supplier and distributor BIA for delivery of bodies for the Komatsu HD605-8 for quarrying customers.
