The HD1500 has a capacity of 159 tons or 102 yd3. The fully automatic seven speed transmission with lock-up and skip-shift give the operator the speed and response they need to meet production demands. On down hills, the operator has oil cooled multi-disc retarder and brakes to control the fully loaded truck. A tight turning radius and hydropneumatic suspension make the HD1500-7 very maneuverable in tight quarters and provide a cushioned ride for better load retention and more comfortable ride.
