Moxy is one of the truck makers challenging the 40-ton ceiling for articulated-truck capacity with its MT51, rated to haul 50.1 tons of material. Top tote its loaded weight of more than 85 tons, Moxy employs a Cummins QSX15 6-cylinder diesel engine with multi-positioned waste gated turbocharger and air to air intercooler rated at 510 horsepower. Power is directed to an Allison 4600 ORS automatic transmission with lock up in all gears and a remote-propshaft-driven two speed drop box. The 51-ton ADT bears Moxy’s trademark free-swinging, gear-driven tandem housing. Enclosed hydraulic, oil-cooled multiple discs provide six-wheel stopping power.
