Innovation is a fact of life. Established ideas of the past may not be the best ideas for the present or the future. That seems to be the driving force between the ETF Haul Trucks. Take a look at the video below.
All in all, this concept appears to have some interesting features that mine owners should love like increased payloads, a tight turning radius, and rotating dump beds. But despite the technological advantages and sky high claims on reliability there has yet to be one EFT Truck produced. According to various sources on the internet EFT is only interested in producing trucks when they ordered, not a single prototype can be found. Another point of concern is some form of lease program for the trucks and maintenance provided on by EFT. So far, it appears that those conditions are enough to keep mine operators in the seats of their traditional diesel/electric haul trucks.
