The Radschlepper Ost (RSO) - literally translated: wheeled-tractor east - was developed by professor Porsche based on a demand for a primitive wheeled tractor. Skoda was ordered to manufacture a pilot series of 200 exemplars in January 1943. After negative experiences in the course of a comparison run with Maultier vehicles, the order was reduced to 100 exemplars on 11th April 1943. Any further production was dropped.

The Radschlepper Ost was propelled by a 90 HP four-cylinder petrol engine with a cylinder capacity of 6 litres. A payload of 4 tons could be carried by deadweight of 12 tons. A cable winch with a towing capacity of 5 tons was available as further equipment. The shown vehicle was used by the Organisation Todt.
