70ton dumper stuck in mud pulled by D10 dozer
This CAT777 dumper got stuck in a soft muddy spot and it took a D10 dozer
as well as a big loader to get it out.
We loaded this dumper with single wheels at the rear because owner was
waiting for new tyres to be delivered.
To get to the offloading point we have to cross under a bridge which is too
low for us to pass under. We then offload before the bridge and the dumper
drives under the bridge by its own where we load it again further to
After passing under the bridge we got stuck in a soft muddy spot. Probably
would not have; if we had duals on the rear of the dumper.
Dumper is working on Coal mine in South Africa near Johannesburg.

Why Tailgates and Clay Don't Mix
Tailgate trucks are great for wet silty material, but not so great for wet
clay. Here a large chunk has fallen the length of the box and hit the
tailgate while the truck was dumping (all the dirt "rides" the box until
it's almost all the way up, then falls from the top of the box). The result
was snapping off one chain support and bending the other. All the weight of
the dirt lifted the front of the truck and held it in place so the driver
couldn't pull forward.
