The TATRA T 815-6M0R37 6x6.1R is fitted with a crew cab, while the TATRA T 815-6M0R27 6x6.1R is fitted with a short cab.

The applicable classification subheading for the TATRA T 815-6M0R37 6x6.1R and T 815-6M0R27 6x6.1R will be 8704.23.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Motor vehicles for the transport of goods: Other, with compression-ignition internal combustion piston engine (diesel or semi-diesel): G.V.W. exceeding 20 metric tons”. The rate of duty will be 25%.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States and the accompanying duty rates are provided on the World Wide Web at http://ww.usitc.gov /tata/hts/.
