    These are the Road Train thingys in Australia right?

    These trucks must be real imposing. How do they handle curves (if there are any?)

    Also, what's the max tonnage it can carry?

    Australian designed and built to handle the harshest off-road applications, bad conditions and big loads are chewed up and spat out by Mack Titan.

    Providing operators with the high-end horsepower and raw grunt needed for multiple trailer and extra heavy haulage work, Titan can handle up to 200 tonne GCM* capabilities.

    A choice of Cummins Signature 392kW (520Hp), 440kW (580Hp), or 471kW (620Hp) engines, or Cat C-15 384kW (515Hp), 410kW (550Hp), and C-16 448kW (600Hp) engines give Titan the power to haul the biggest loads with ease

    yeah, a lot of the roads these things travel on, they don't have to worry about damaging the roads

    After a six hour job of assembling 113 trailers into a 1,474.3 metre long road train in 38 degree heat on a closed stretch of highway outside Clifton, Queensland, John got in his truck and drove his way into the Guinness Book of World Records. He did 140 metre in 50 seconds with nearly one-and-a-half kilometres of truck weighing more than 1300 tonnes!
    To give you an illustration of the dimensions involved, this overhead pic is an earlier record attempt by the same gent in 2003, which used 'only' 87 trailers
