    Default Tatra Specifications

    Thought I'd share some info that is not commonly known:-

    Winch
    In the US winches are rated by lbs/weight they will pull on 1st layer of cable, Tatra uses force which is not 100% interchange because it's mass/accel ie kg mass x m per second, so you would have to test US winch via EU std, also I found Tatra list force KN on last layer of line which considerably reduces its pulling force, long story short after seeing winch manual where it lists 1st layer line pull and using a basic formula the Tatra winch is basically equivalent to a US 45,000 lbs Braden / Tulsa winch. This is same for 813 & 815.

    TP6 model:-
    Where as other model 813 / 815 are selectable rear drive / engage front drive, TP models are AWD.
    On 815 version only, VT 4 dr 8x8 and TP6's the engine is set back in the chassis enabling a semi flat floor for the drivers area v the normal dog house on all other 2 dr cabs, these engines required a semi remote oil pan + they have an additional stage sector on the oil pump and have a large oil sump capacity. Not only does this improve cab ergo's but improves weight distribution, particular important to the TP prime mover ballast tractor which increased its max GCWR to 120t or 265,000 lbs American v 100T for the 813 version.

    I dont know about winch "numbers", but I know the figures listed are for the first layer, thats correct.

    The selectable rear drive / engage front drive is not commonly known because its not true at least the 813's are permanent AWD, maybe with the exception of some of the crazier job-specific versions. Since 815's are too modern (read: expensive) for me :P I dont have much info on those.

    Correct, selectable front axle drive reference only relates to the 815, thanks for the clarification.

    Wrong place for this, I will be uploading manuals pages photos etc,

    But to answer your ? Their were several VVN 8x8 ( and poss 6x6 ? ) brought back from Desert Storm later sold to the public, 1 in San Diego area, couple of 8x8 tippers in OR were private import in mid 90's. My TP will be shipped in Feb. + there was a company that were building special Tatra projects for US army prototype projects, don't know what happened to them, they were based in WI.

    The 2 in OR were on a farm and street registered, light blue with grey driveline frame, bought by another farmer, this was around 2003, have not heard about them since then. There must be others ???
