Welcome to DT HiLoad Australia. Established in 2003, we are an Australian company specialising in the design and manufacture of the Hercules open cut dump truck body, the Bullant underground body and our range of Barracuda mining buckets. We manufacture and supply haul truck bodies for mine sites and contractors globally.
Based in Perth, Western Australia, our workshop facilities locally and overseas are state of the art and all manufacturing can be completed on site. The entire production process from the initial engineering design, cutting and rolling through to final fabrication is completed in our premises, with the flexibility to finish the final fabrication at alternative locations, such as mine sites.
DT HiLoad focuses its development efforts on the Hercules range of products. Addressing key features such as; body weight, reduced wear, reduced maintenance, durability, reliability and increased payload. Through extensive research, innovation and an impressive body life record, the Hercules body has evolved over 16 years and we are currently producing our Phase IX body.
The Hercules heavy duty, lightweight, durable, dump truck body is a patented design made entirely from a flexible, hard wearing steel plate. Through the use of cutting edge technology and an engineered design, the Hercules haul truck tray is proven to improve mining efficiency and productivity through an increased payload advantage and lower downtime. Each Hercules body is customised to mine specific requirements. The body volume is chosen for the material density of the application and the physical details are selected for the particular truck model, thus ensuring optimum fleet performance.
DT HiLoad implements a unique Wear Management strategy which is aimed at retaining the initial body weight throughout the bodies’ life. This strategy optimises the service life of the Hercules tray. Comprehensive maintenance service and product support is offered by DT HiLoad.
We offer customers a first class, high performance body which lasts and can be found operating in all types of mining applications around the world.
DT HiLoad employs a skilled workforce committed to manufacturing excellence. Through global and local recruitment and outstanding apprenticeship training, our specialist team deliver consistent high standards of workmanship at all stages of production.
By providing regular training, skills audits, mentoring and a commitment to best safety practice, DT HiLoad raises the bar for manufacturing excellence.
