Dutch Iveco dealer and specialist Iveco Schouten has build the very first Iveco Trakker Hi-Land 10×8! The truck has a gross vehicle weight of 49,6 ton, just within the Dutch limit of 50 tons for a rigid. Vehicles like this are common as tippers in Holland.
Schouten made the chassis longer and fitted an extra steered, non driven centre axle on what used to be an 8×8 vehicle. The steering system is electrical, and the centre axle can be lifted. When the truck is running empty the centre axles is raised, and that is also the case when the truck goes offroad.
