Heavy hauler rolls its way to a record
Haul truck 17-100 – a shiny new Cat 797 – went into service at Syncrude’s North Mine in June 1999, about the same time that the Dallas Stars were lifting their first Stanley Cup after defeating the Buffalo Sabres. Twenty one years later with 55,803,015 tons of material hauled over 157,051 trips, the truck continues to roll along the haul roads at Syncrude’s Aurora Mine to achieve a world-record 150,000 operating hours.
