The Lego Technic Forklift Transport 8872 is a nice truck designed to carry a yellow forklift. I haven’t build the forklift yet, and we assume that several types of vehicles can be carried on the trailer . The trailer of my model has been extended, and the truck measures now 60 cm length, 9,5 cm wide and 14 cm high. Sold in 1993, the set contains originally 761 parts. This set has no electric motor, and components used are almost studfull.
Front wheels can be directed from the beacon of the truck. The trailer is locked by a mechanical system, and the trailer ramp can be lowered or raised with a small gear on the side.
My modifications on this Lego Technic Forklift Transport 8872 are essentially aesthetic. The tractor of the trailer is now equipped with seats and steering wheel, 2 exhausts are placed at the rear of the cabin, and 2 fuels tanks takes places between the wheels.
The trailer was extended and slightly redesigned to carry numerous cars and trucks of my Lego Technic collection. Also, a winch takes places on the trailer.
