Tamiya Grand Hauler

If you don’t like Tamiya 1/14-scale tractor trucks, we probably can’t be friends. I absolutely dig these things, so I was thrilled to see Tamiya once again expand its lineup with the addition of the new Grand Hauler. This sleeper style body is my favorite of Tamiya’s offerings, so I’m especially happy with what I see here.

Other than new styling, this big rig is no different than previous offerings. That means it’s got a realistic aluminum C-channel chassis (stretched chassis on this rig), a 3-speed transmission (you need shift gears on a hauler, Jack), hard-plastic body and a ton of details.

The driver figure is new and if you have some detailing skills, sure to add a new level of awesomeness.

Some of the new styling items include front and rear bumpers, grille, visor, stretched chassis, side steps, rear tenders, driver figure and custom fat exhaust stacks. The end result is a dress-up tractor as opposed to a stock representation.

    How much for the grand hauler,I would like that cause I drive trucks for a living and also fly R/C airplanes

    • Hey Michael, it all depends on where your from and what the exchange rate is from where you are buying it from. For example, I know tower hobbies has the Grand Hauler for 449.97US plus shipping. Based on current rates as of today. That is just the kit and would still need the radio system, and speed control and battery for operation.

      Hope this helps,
      -Chris
