Now I finished my MOC and it's, the probably smallest functional version of the 8110, unlike the cute 9390 which is very limited in functions. The whole MOC based on an older chassis I now finished the last evenings, using LDD again.

It's main features are as follows:
- 7-wide, comparable to the 9390 axle width
- 350 Parts
- Live axles with suspension
- Front and rear PTO with gearbox
- Working winch
- Working crane with grabber
- Tiltable bed
- HOG ( hand of god ) steering

And this is what I came out with. Unfortunately I don't own that much orange pieces, so I made it Lime Green for the first presentation.

To achieve a live axle setting I used the Liftarm 1 x 2 with Ball Joint Angled and realized the suspension with Rubber Connectors.

The winch at the Front-PTO, using the Pin Connector (87408).

The crane is located on the Rear-PTO and uses the new turntable elements.

For switching between Front and Rear-PTO a gearbox slides the axles and gears and connect them with the 12T Gear. The axles get connected by pushing them inwards and can easily be disconnected via the crank on the other side.

More detailed pictures to be found on Brickshelf.

This Mechanism is also shown in the video, also including the other functins in action.

You can also download the LDD-File. And there will probably some Building Instructions in the future.

With best regards,

Smaller models can be even a greater challenge than bigger ones. Good work carmping all the functions!

Great model and even greater thanks to its small scale. I like your transmission most. It is excellent idea how you switch between two functions with help of moving bevel gears.
