Taurus Mining Solutions bodies are lightweight, strong and subject to stringent engineering, FEA processes

and quality control systems. They are proven in the field to out-perform other bodies on the

market in both life and productivity gains.

Dump truck bodies

Taurus Mining Solutions are an industry leader in the design and manufacture of mining dump truck bodies. Our designs are suitable for all mining applications, including hard rock, iron ore and coal.

Taurus bodies are lightweight, carry more, and are designed to last. They are subject to strength and life-cycle analyses to achieve an optimum design through Finite Element Analysis (FEA), independent productivity measurement techniques, and the latest and most rigorous engineering modelling. In addition, we build our products with the best possible quench and tempered plate available. We also ensure a first-class QA-QC system to ensure the end product is of a world-class standard. We are incredibly proud of our excellent materials, workmanship, and engineering quality and encourage customer visits during the manufacturing process.

Each body is custom-engineered for optimum OEM compatibility and designed with unique features to ensure:

 - Less maintenance

 - Reduced wear

 - Decrease in damage

 - Less downtime

 - Lower fuel burn

 - Reduced tyre wear

 - Reduced stress/wear on equipment components

 - Less loading face and dump area clean up

Unique Features

  • Proven - Rear top side wall aligned with the angle of repose to minimise weight and limit loading tool bucket interaction and damage

  • Proven - Lower side wall height to increase loading tool cycle times

  • Proven - Unique and innovative beams for strength and reduction of weight

  • Proven - Angled headboards with material deflectors to limit material spillage onto the body headboard

  • Proven - Maximised material flow and minimal floor wear

  • Proven - Greater than half-wheel height dump clearance

  • Proven - Complete material dumping over safety berm – no material drag back or under body damage

  • Fully designed and engineered with state-of-the-art computer modelling and Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

  • Designed to meet customer requirements

  • Made from the highest quality Australian or European Q&T plate (Taurus will not use any brands of inferior plates)

  • All external structural plates are grade 80 Q&T plate

  • All internal floor, front wall, side walls, and wear plates are grade 450 Q&T plate

  • Lightweight without compromising strength and life
