Power Functions Fork Lift
Posted 02 March 2009 - 11:43 PM
This is my new Model Team MOC, a compact indoor forklift, that completely works with Power Functions.
Click the images for the full pictures.
And a view from the back:
It reaches quite high:
And it fully works with Power Functions, remote controlled. It can drive back and forth, steer left and right, lift and lower the fork, and tip the lifting column forward and backward.
Be sure to check out this Youtube video of the model in action :)
And finally, here's the Brickshelf folder (don't worry, it's public).

That is an excellent forklift, and like how you incorporated access to the linear actuator like it was an ordinary engine cover. Very clever! But last, but not least, packing in all that stuff into that compact package is an impressive feat in itself. Fantastic piece of work!

As the last poster said, for some reason it looks much smaller than it really is in that thumbnail. I only realized how big it was when I saw and recognized the wheels.

I have been working on a forklift myself lately and spend an entire day on the extending-boom system without using the new studless beams. In the end it worked but was not able to lift even the smallest classic town car....
So I guess know how hard it is to make a functioning forklift that also looks good. Yours has all that.
A very clever idea: using the actuator deeply hidden within the model!
Nice video, I like the reactions of the cat to all the different functions....
