The unusual thing was the entire loading apparatus seemed to sit on a turntable!
Anyways, this was before I rekindled my interest for LEGO, but the image stuck with me, and as I got more confident with the new studless building techniques, as well as my collection grew (I also discovered Bricklink), I decided to try and make one.
Been working on this for a month or so, it has been rebuilt two times, and I am many experiences richer.
I especially wanna thank Alasdair Ryan and JorgeOpesi for valuable feedback and help!
The features are:
-Adjustable side mirrors
-PF seatbelts for the driver
-Front and rear PF lights
-AWD powered by one PF XL Motor
-Steering by two mini LA's, powered by one PF M Motor
-Lifting of digger by two large LA's, by one PF L Motor
-Tipping of bucket by one LA, powered by one PF L motor
-Turning of the digging apparatus by one PF-M motor
-Fed by a standard PF Battery box
-Pendular suspension on rear axle
The creation is not based on a particular real life vehicle (I don't even know if there is something remotely similar-looking), the main goal was to make something presentable, with the desired functions.
So there we go!
I'm fairly pleased with the result, seeing as this is my first big MOC with many functions apart from driving and steering
