I decided to fight with a snow on roads, of course with my snow plow.

Starting from the front. Operating the plow is done with 2 small actuators, one for the lifting/ lowering a plow and one for rotate a plow. Range trading for left is smaller than for right. For a ploper of a each function serves one by one M motor.

In the cabin appearance you can find a similarity to MAN's trucks. It has a openable door and details in interior. Of course you can tilt it. Under the cabin is a fake V6 engine. Behind the cabin is a BaterryBox which can a easy replace.

A gritter working fine. For a stuff I use a half bushes. For the gritter propel serves a M motor placed in the tank. A gritter is not switched from a IR remote but from IR switch placed on the right side of truck. Principle of operation is based on toothgear z36 and technic disc 3x3.

For the ruck propel serves a Xl motor with 1:2.3 ratio. A model moving really good. Ok, it not fast, but it doesn' t be. On the front they are a lights placed on plow.

Nice snow plow. I like the details on the interior a lot and that cabin design looks good. The functions are great.

Very nice moc! The proportions look perfect and this one shows that stacking beams - when done neatly - can turn out very well. Thanks for sharing!

Great work! I think you could make the shape of the plow more complex, however. Does your model have suspension? (underside shot please! :sweet:)

This is a really nice model,  well executed. I like the cabin and lights details,  also the shape of the rear mudguard is a nice change.

No, it doesn't have a suspension. Not enought space for it.
