Our History

CARVED BY A LIFETIME OF HARD WORK

Over 80 years in the making, today’s robust, reliable Rokbak haulers can be traced all the way back to 1934 – and the world’s first off-road dump truck. This pioneering machine was a heavy-hauling powerhouse – forging a path for the ground-breaking haulers that followed.
