Perfect 10

We don’t get many 10×10 trucks in TLCB’s home nation, but Eastern Europe seems to get far more exciting(?) machinery. Ok not this, this or this, but the vehicle in today’s post certainly is. It’s the snappily named Tatra 8P6R53 10×10, a DAF-based tipper built by Czech truck-makers Tatra with, you guessed it, a 10-wheel-drive system. Of the five driven axles all bar one steer too, making it a fiendishly complicated drivetrain which is necessary in the Czech Republic for reasons that we don’t really understand. Whatever they are, this magnificent Model Team recreation of the Tatra 8P6R53 10×10 comes from previous bloggee Arian Janssens and it features the truck’s four-axle steering plus a working tipper, and there’s more to see by clicking here.
