That seems very nice Effe, do you have any plans for the PTO┬┤s to make them move only when they need to?

Hi, this is my first MOD posted here.

Before to receive the Xerion, I wanted to MOD it as well as the real one, with AWD and an engine under the hood.

Are you making some kind of instructions for these mods???

Would like them, because I ain't a modification and building expert.

More of a collector who uses other peoples mods on his collection.

This could be simple done with a additional pole reverser or a second receiver, but for me it is ok in this version.

Wow, Effe! I am always amazed how fast you get your mods done in LDD and in reality. RC is very well implemented and only the most important functions. Do you plan instructions?

I think this would be necessary. The build is not very complex, but a correct sequence of steps is at some points necessary.

Actually not, maybe you can compare it with siegfrieds file of the standard 42054

That is a good idea, then I can use LDD manager to get a partslist.

I hope this adds a photo

If people like it i can try making a model in ldd

But it wil be my first model

Some side info

1 motor drives al funtions

The switches control the different functions

So bij turning the motor left or right you control the directions of the arm and rotation of the crane

I only need to make the gripper

Implanting both steering and pendicular suspension in the front axle isnt an easy job... my mods to my boring "yellow" will be a V6 engine with 42030 parts, AWD with central differential, also lockable plus a crane based on 8258 with pneumatic extension of boom with arocs parts and pneumatic rotation and grabing, also some attachements for the crane, such as bucket, grab, drill and...

will be interesting indeed

Also a combine harvester attachment is a great idea, I would try to make the attachement actually "pick" things and drop it on a conveyor belt and a storage for it, since the top rear bonnet is empty and can be used for placement of a storage

A pneumatic auxillary output also looks sweet

Will be thinking what other mods can I do to increase its playablity even more!

Hey guys

What do you think about a secondary output for the atachments

1 motorized like it is all ready

And a second one driven from the drive shaft

So one output will allways be driven when the truck is in motion

Optional is a clucht to disengage the drive so you have 2 controllable outputs for the attachment when stationairy

What do you guys think?
