That looks amazing. A lot of gears 'n stuff (I love gears) into a relatively small package.
I always really like your mocs. I've already built the Swingloader and the truck (although both dismantled now, because I needed the parts) and this also looks really nice.
Might I ask the usual; any chance for instructions?
Thanks, I'm glad you appreciate the work!
I can't (as usual) guarantee instructions, but I can guarantee an accurate LDraw model!

Maybe a stupid question, but I am still going to ask it.
Is there a complete instructionfile and partslist for the truck, crane and sidetipper bed?
Like it a lot.
There aren't stupid questions, only stupid people!
Just kidding of course. I haven't made the instructions for the side tipping bed unfortunately
, but it really is a very simple design, and I'm pretty sure you'll be able to replicate it from the pictures of it. The crane is pretty much an exact copy of the one from 8110 Unimog, with an added pneumatic circuit for the boom extending, and slightly modified outriggers to compensate for the height difference between the two models. There is also the operators cabin, but that doesn't provide any functionality.
Thanks, I am glad you like it!

It makes me think to a Moc i've seen recently
One thing to be attentive to is the fact all gerabox needs to work really smoothly when using a single motor. And you'll need to pass quikly to real pieces to valid that...
The frame structure is really important in such Mocs. You'll need a perfectly independant frame and as rigid as possible.
From my experience, one motor can drive until 6 gearboxes, more becomes really difficult due to friction...
i'll follow this thread...
Haha, there are definitely some similarities between this and your truck
. but obviously at different scales
The extra size of this one allows for some more features and detailing, but at the same time depends heavily on the structural build, as it is turning out to be very heavy!
All the functions in the chassis are working as intended, it is built physically and tested up till this point. I built the front two axles first, along with the first four function gearbox and the functions it controls. Then I built the rear two axles with their functions and a second four function gearbox. Then I started to fine tune the two, making some small and some heavy modifications. Especially the mid outriggers were unnecessarily complicated before I saw that I had an (so far) unused output from the front gearbox, that alligned perfectly with where I needed it to go
For the superstructure, It needs to sit fairly low and at the same time be compact. I suspect that in order to have it low enough I will have to put two gearboxes inside of it, and only have a single vertical axle going through the turntable.. This will be the next challenge!
