Since the volumes of material to be moved on A-10D are smaller than on the larger A-10C project (12,000,000 cubic yards vs 25,000,000 cubic yards) and the haul distances are shorter, smaller vehicles can be used. Not too much smaller, though. The truck carries about 100 tons of material at a time vs the 150 ton vehicles on A-10C, and the shovel is about three quarters the size of the big one on the larger project. Picture taken February 1999.
