I made a dumptrailer (not yet finished) for the truck i've copied from Jaap. (Very nice truck btw).
It uses 1 m-motor for the legs and 1 m-motor for the linear actuators.
I must fix the lifting of the bed because it's a little bit heavy.

hope you like it.

Stephen

Looks great so far.  You may want to build actuators out of bricks (stronger) rather than the ones you are using.

Well eventually the LA's clutch will engage no matter how geared down the motor is.

Thanks for the reactions. :)

I will lift the bed by two studs to have more strenght.
now it's only 1 stud to hang the trailer on the truck, and that's not strong enough.
I will also try to make a new lifting mechanism.

I also made a lowbedtrailer ( also not yet finished ).

5 axles (all steering) and 1 m-motor for lifting the ramp.
