MOC Dump Truck

This Dump Truck is a personal creation (MOC). This set has no electric motor, and components used are almost studfull. I wanted to build a very realistic vehicle, like old Lego Model Team sets, including few functions with Lego Technic parts.

The Basket Truck has 2 steering wheels. The 4 rear wheels are linked with the small V2 motor. The truck has no hood, so the motor is apparent.

The dump can be moved. It is maintained up or down thanks to a worm. Pneumatic parts or linear actuators should be used for this vehicle, space constraints have prohibited them, particularly because of the 4 rear wheels drive and transmission parts.

The colors were chosen to make the truck realistic. There’s white cab, black is used for the bottom of the cab and the front bumper. Dump is gray, classical. A spare wheel is a present between the chassis and the dump.

The vehicle is composed of 6 wheels, the 2 front wheels steers with the steering wheel. The 4 rear wheels are linked to the motor trough differentials (one per axle). The motor has a “V” architecture with 4 cylinders, and it can be removed easily.

Now, let’s talk about the others functions. The front shovel can be raised up and down, the main blade can be raised up and down and it also can be oriented left or right directly from the cabin. Headlights follow steering movement: like modern cars or old Citroën vehicles, when you turn right, headlights are oriented on the right.

What’s good on this grader? Style, motor, numerous functions, and low complexity. But unfortunately, the main blade doesn’t use worms, so handling is not good at all.
