On March 29, 2004 the T282B was introduced to the public as an off-road construction type vehicle. Being 50 ft 3 in long,
and 29 ft 10 in wide makes this dump truck too large for public roads, and even has to have the assembly completed once

When fully loaded this dump truck moves at 40 mph, which doesn't seem like much considering it has 3,650-horsepower -
until you remember it's carrying almost 400 tons in the back of it! With speed like that it's a good thing they aren't street

The T282-B is actually run with a DDC/MTU 20V4000 motor offering the greatest output of any commercially available
vehicle in the world. The engine has 20 cylinders arranged in a V pattern and weighs in at 10.4 tons by itself, and also has a
capacity of 90 liters. One of the most important things about the Liebherrs T 282B is its engine, which is a diesel electric drive
that powers an electric generator which powers the alternating current driving motors. Compared to the mechanically
propelled Kippern, the advantages brought by this engine are enormous improvements. Besides the service life being
substantially longer for the drive system, the improvements in transferring power to the wheels is a major upgrade seen in
this dump truck.
