MOC: Forklift

9 posts in this topic

This is a model of a Toyota Series 8 forklift. It's modeled with about 1 stud accuracy to the real one (at least compared to the pictures on the internet.

There are 3 M-motors and one XL-motor with two PF IR receivers. The XL-motor is used for driving, the M-motors are used for steering, tilting and raising the forks.

And here's the design model in LDD (which was used to make the brick version).

Well, there's a small flaw thou :D The height that it can lift is only double the range of the LA (since i used a pulley system with a chain), which in practice isn't that much...

Really nice!

Looks good and amazing you managed to get all the functionality whilst maintaining the accurate looks.

@ Bojan Pavsik: Have you seen the 30 pictures of Marat Andreev's Lego Toyota Series 8 forklift on his Flickr photostream? It is powerful enough to lift a full can of soda pop:

Very nice! I haven't seen it. But it really is powerful. I used an M motor for lifting because i couldn't squeeze 2 XLs in there with everything else in there, so mine only lifts a couple of pallets. I made it more for "show" so to say and was using in on 3 local LUG exhibitions, mainly to move the pallets around from a truck down to the table and back. Sometimes i even put some candy on them and drove them to the edge of the table so the kids watching could take them :)

Nice, compact and it looks like the real thing! Too bad the lifting height is a bit low though.
