MOC: Snow Plow
Posted 14 January 2012 - 07:24 PM
I got another one for you. This time it's a snow plow I created last winter (when we had one with all its loads of snow). During the main buiding phase the MOC got a plow on the front end, but I've added an extra one on the passenger site at the 2nd row. So now it's also able to rid (is that the correct meaning? ) the Autobahns from the snow white. The Plow Truck is fully equipped with a salt-silo and -spreader on the bed, high mounted headlights (if a plow is installed) and some extra features and details like warning signs, side markers and a spare tire. For the rest of the year this Machine is going to a simple Tipper Truck.
Lots of stuff to get the plow mounted on the plate.
The salt spreader.
A view underneath with all the chassis parts.
The Truck without a plow on the way back to the maintenance depot.
Fully equipped and ready for service.
The second plow gets simply clipped on the frame.
The Classic-Town-Truck is able to rid the snow from both Classic-Town-Lanes.
Wintertime can be lonesome. So the driver is happy about a little something.
And that is what it's going to be during summertime. Maybe I still could put on a movable flap at rear...
Well, that shall be all for now. Hope you have fun with the pics. Any comments are welcome as usual.
Thanks in advance,

I've never seen one with two plows but I guess that's because our roads aren't wide enough And we've had very heavy snowfall today (first time this winter) so the timing is perfect.
I love the picture with the baker.

nice to see you here!
IMHO this is definitely one of your best MOCs. Even a snow plow can be beautiful if it is built like this, all those functions are really awesome. As I have already said in my eyes your photography ranks among the best you can find in the whole brick universe, this little scene would be suitable for any Lego catalogue.
Looking forward to seeing more MOCs from you here!

@ lego envy: Good point. I'll give it try, but I actually don't have enough cheese slopes for it.
@ leela: Feel free to build it our way.
@ LT: *lol* Yeah, this could be so. I remember this "The Simpons" episode.
@ ER0L: Thx, the same to you! Well, honestly there could be even room for more. If you take a look at the official TLC product images - they are simply all crisp, sharp and absolutely perfect illuminated. Mine are just some ambitioned amateur shots.

That's called a wing plow, and almost all the Snow Plows up here in Wisconsin have them. In fact, the big plows that are used on wide roads can have wings on each sides of the plow. The craziest thing I've seen up here is a TowPlow. Google that if you've never seen one to see how creative they get in snow removal these days.
This is a great MOC, and while I don't build in 4 wide, I'm thinking that a 6 wide plow would be a good addition to my town.

It really looks like a great mid 80s 4 wide set.

Brilliantly photographed as well. Keep up the good work.
I've never heard of a TowPlow. I googled it..that is intense. I'm glad we don't get such harsh winters here.
