MacKellar Group has purchased four additional Liebherr T 264 240 t / 265 ton off-highway haul trucks, adding to the fleet of five commissioned in early 2020.

All nine of the T 264 fleet will work at Anglo American’s Dawson open-cut metallurgical coal mine in Central Queensland, Australia.

The four new T 264, manufactured in Liebherr Newport News, Co. facility in Virginia USA, will complete pre-assembly in Mackay before travelling inland to Dawson Mine for final commissioning.

The trucks will join the working fleet in early 2021.

MacKellar Group is a mining and civil earthmoving company, founded in Australia in 1966.

Mackellar Group chose to continue with the T 264 trucks for their 240-tonne fleet, stating:

“The T 264 provides efficient productivity for our clients by offering a true 240 metric tonne payload, and superior speed on grade. The many operator comforts also makes the trucks well accepted on site.”

The fleet of trucks at Dawson mine are supported by Liebherr-Australia’s Mackay branch and on site-Liebherr technicians, another area that assisted the purchase of the additional four units. MacKellar Group concluded:

“Liebherr-Australia’s support has been excellent, starting from the beginning with the provision of professional operator training, through to support from their experienced technicians.”
