New mining truck "more mind-boggling than vegan pork rinds"

At last week's MINExpo in Las Vegas, even many of the most seasoned veterans were clamboring around the big machines that filled the convention center. Boys and their toys.

So, it's fun to see what happens when newbies see the scale of the equipment. The folks at Wired magazine are suitably blown away by Caterpillars new 795F truck, in an online article titled, "Big Honkin' EV Hauls 345 Tons." They're particularly impressed with the fact that it's dual diesel-electric.

They call it "more mind boggling than vegan pork rinds."

It's a fun read. [right, the Cat 797F]
