World's biggest dump truck

Men are constantly amazed by wonders - some straight from the natural world, while a good part of them are man-made. Arguably most of these man-made features serve purposes, but of course many are just 'overkill' attempts to keep themselves entertained. Think the tallest architectures, fastest machines, etc.  

Here we have one of the biggest machinery that rolls on Earth - Dump trucks. And it just got bigger.
 
Capable of carrying and tugging around 496 tonnes of earth on its back, the Belaz 75710 claims to be the World's biggest in its field. To help it perform its tasks, it has not one, but two 16-cylinder turbocharged diesel engines underneath its hood (if you still consider the Belaz has one in the first place).
 
Together, the powerplants pack a total of 130 litres of cylindrical capacity, and pump out 4,600bhp. Then, one would expect some mountain-shifting torque figure to get the truck moving - approximately 18,605Nm of them.
 
Head to the video to see just how big this monster of a truck is.
