This is truck with work platform I spoke about above.
My latest creation is “telehandler” also from set 8052. Honestly it doesn’t have telescopic boom but at least it looks like it has... :) It features following functions:
- lifting boom via linear actuator and medium motor with gear ratio 1:3 (it is as slow as lifting container in main model)
- rear axle steering with eccentric control via beacon on roof of cabin – this was little puzzle because lack of bevel gears
- front stabilizers which are able to lift front wheels little bit above land
- adjustable rear mirror (I like especially that one on side of battery box)
