A haul truck is a giant truck used to transport materials in mining and heavy construction. It is a large type of dump truck which cannot run on highways or regular roads.

Most of these trucks are of a two-axle design, but some are three axis. Haul truck capacities range from 40 short tons (36 long tons; 36 t) to 496 short tons (443 long tons; 450 t). Large quarry-sized trucks range from 40 to 100 short tons (36 to 89 long tons; 36 to 91 t).
