8436 Truck is a TECHNIC set released in 2004. It resembles a six-wheeler heavy semi-truck with a modular truck bed, which can be used to attach one of the three buildable attachments(a claw, a wheel lift and a crane) . The truck features studless construction, rear differential, a rear wheel driven faux V-6 engine, as well as front wheel HOG (hand of god) steering with non-functional cab steering wheel. The faux engine is located directly under the cab, the cab itself can be flipped open to reveal the engine.
The set incorporates two medium third-generation Pneumatic cylinders, two pneumatic switches (3rd-Gen) and one second-generation pneumatic pump. The pneumatic componets are used to construct the three above-mentioned attachments, which can be easily attached/detached to the truck bed.
The set includes two instruction manuals, manual one is for the truck itself, and manual two is for the three attachments.

This set has no traditional B model that requires parts from the main model; the three truck bed attachments are acting as alternative models in this case, as they can be constructed separately from the truck, however only one attachment may be build at a time.
