Comment on this model.

The Liebherr T 264 is a mining truck with a diesel electric AC drive.  It has a maximum operating weight of 393 tonnes and the payload capacity is 228 tonnes. 


The model comes in a large Liebherr-branded sleeved box and no information is provided about the real truck. 

The review model had no defects or missing parts.

Assembly is limited to adding the front staircase and it is described in a simple leaflet.


The truck frame is a heavy and substantial piece of modelling with most of the components metal with the exceptions being some elements of the Double A-Frame and rear suspension systems.  The underside of the radiator is modelled as is the AC alternator and the cable pipe to the rear axle.

The wheels are detailed in plastic with the front wheels having outboard disc and caliper brakes.  The rubber tyres are very good and have a deep tread.

At the front the stairs and handrails are metal and are thin, with the ladders to the engine being plastic.  The radiator grille is fine mesh metal, and the lights are nicely detailed.  On the cab platform there are large metal mirrors although they are not silvered.  The walking surface is textured and the equipment cabinets are a mix of metal and plastic and have good detailing.  Two fire extinguisher cylinders add to the look.  The cab has a double seat inside and there are LED payload indicators on each side of the platform.

Large rubber mud flaps are behind the front wheels.  Between the wheels there are large tanks for fuel and hydraulics and large exhaust pipes are visible on one side. 

The rear axle is massive with the grille and lights detailed.

The dump body has a heavy and solid structure.  Large soft rubber mud flaps hang down from the front and rock deflectors drop down between the rear tyres.  Small rear lights add detail.


The wheels roll well and the front steering turns to a convincing angle.  There is fully working suspension on both axles.

The dump body raises using twin double stage hoist cylinders and these are stiff enough to hold the body at any angle.  The tipping angle is very good.

There are two opening gates on the cab platform.

The debris bars between the rear wheels oscillate.


This is a typically strong Conrad model and the limited use of plastic is appropriate.

The paintwork is good, and the graphics are very sharp.


It is a big heavy model but seems a little pricey compared to the larger T 282 model.


This is the most detailed of Conrad's mining truck models and it looks really good.  It goes very well with other large mining models.


It first appeared at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in 2014.
Good steering angle.
Profile view.
Stop lights on the body.
Impressive underneath.
Gate at the top of the ladder opens.
Excellent tipping angle.
Being loaded by a Liebherr R 9800.
