[MOC] Truck with knuckle boom crane

Recommended Posts

Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen!

I'd like to show you my truck with knuckle boom crane.


The truck is designed in a way that the vehicle body can be changed easily to a tipper body or without a body the truck can be used as tractor

Remark facelift: after some time I spent the truck a facelift by enlarging the wheelbase for one stud; reducing the length of the crane base from 3 to 2 studs and shifting the platform 1/2 stud backwards; new design of the winch; shifting the canopy of the cab 1 stud forward; replacing the train gates by my own creation


The body can be removed


to use the truck as tractor


or as tipper

Kind regards

It looks fantastic Mario, is really cool how you made the crane, it looks to be enough strong, i also like how the body can be removed to put another implement or something, is very cool; i think you made an excellent work.

Thanks coghilla and Imanolbb!

Yes, it took me more than one attempt to find a solution which meets my demands regarding design AND playability!

Anyway the knuckle boom is just made for AFOL hands - KFOL hands need a bit more stability so I made a second crane out of Hinge Bricks for my son to play with (quick change system - the crane is just plugged into a hole).

Kind regards from Austria
