The Tamiya 1/14 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3348 6×4 Tipper Truck is a special edition of the R/C Mercedes Benz Arocs tipper truck kit. This kit is unique in that it comes pre-painted in TS-8 Italian red (cab) and TS-17 Gloss aluminum (rear bed), as opposed to the grey finish applied to the original. It is a great option for R/C enthusiasts without the time or confidence to apply a paint job to their creation.
The Tipper Truck is a stylish 3-axle truck with movable bed and distinctive bucket tooth grille. It features a highly realistic truck bed section behind the cab which can be operated by the radio transmitter, using the separately-sold Actuator Set (TAM56545)!
The model’s ladder frame chassis features aluminum side channels with resin cross members and is equipped with a highly realistic suspension utilizing metal leaf springs and friction dampers. A front-mounted motor and 3-speed transmission power the two rear wheel axles, which are fitted with built-in differentials to enable smooth cornering. A 4-channel R/C system and multi-function unit allow you to drive the vehicle and experience realistic lights, sounds and vibrations (Both sold separately).
