[MOC] Kenworth Tow Truck

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey!

I want to show you my latest MOC, Kenworth tow truck. And yes, this is my second Kenworth in a row, but there will be at least 1 more in May. Kenworth is my favourite truck brand :)

40490418613_2c458d384b_b.jpg

Features:

  • 8X4 drive and fake V8 engine - 4 L motors
  • Front axle steering - 1 Servo motor
  • 2nd axle lifting - 1 M motor
  • Rer outriggers - 1 L motor
  • Boom raising - 1 L motor
  • 3 stage boom extending - 1 L motor
  • 2 independent winches - 2 M motors
  • Towing fork - 1 M motor
  • Manual towing fork extending
  • Pendular suspension on 2 rear axles and torsion suspesion on 2nd axle
  • 10 openable doors on each side and openable hood

Dimensions:

  • Lenght - 69cm
  • Widht - 19 studs
  • Height (lowered boom) - 25cm
  • Height (raised boom) - ~70cm
  • Weight - 4.8kg

Some of mechanisms used in the boom, such as raising and end of the 3rd stage were inspired by @efferman `s tow truck and the boom itself was inspired by @Ivan_M `s mobile crane.

This time I tried to make a slightly narrower but higher cab, sleeper also is higher in comparison with my previous MOC. Also I made whell arches as tight as possible, so sometimes in turns rear wheels touch them.

You can find more fotos in my Flick

Video is coming in April!

P. S. I remember that some of You complained about custom fake engine, but I don`t want to switch to other engine in nearest future

Hope You like it!

Looks like it spent some time sitting on a shelf somewhere and picked up some dust :classic:

Otherwise, all I see is a stunning model with some excellent functions. Well done!

Phenomenal work! :wub_drool::wub_drool::wub_drool: Easily my favourite Lego tow truck along with Sariel's from 2011.

Got any video footage?

Wow! :wub: That thing is a beauty. It looks solid, intimidating almost. I really like the tidyness of the bodywork. Normally I am not a fan of using lots of parts to fill the holes, but in this case it really works. That 3-section boom looks amazing. And as a sucker for function heavy models: this one must be packed on the inside *huh*

Hi! I like absolutely everything in this tow truck! Especially I/, loved with the front view, grill, trucks proportions!

Kindly ask you to consider possibility of creating building manuals!

This model was clean when we started doing fotos, but you can see a lot of dust because it was very windy and sand on the ground was dry

No, surprisingly. There is a lot of free space

Unfortunatly I can`t create instructions for this model for 2 reasons

  1. It has some illegal techiques, so LDD instructions is impossible
  2. I have no my own camera, so good quality fotosequens is also impossible

But when I`ll disasseble it I can take not very good quality fotos of everything in this MOC, so you could create instructions. If you are intrested in this please let me know

Very awesome and good job!! i have thought about building something simulair but not had the courage for it yet haha. 

Though i am a bit curious what the chassis/ underside looks like. the truck doesnt even seem to bend a little over such a long distance!

Keep on building :classic:

Hi again!

Last week my friend and I shoot a video, so probably video is coming next or maybe even this week!

While filming video I found 1 problem: in turns the wheels touch the hood and I don't know where, therefore I need to rebuild the whole front part but I'm very tired of this MOC.

Also I have an announcement: I decided to make this MOC in Studio, at this moment I have done about 30% of the work and this truck already has 1862 part, so it is going to be quite big.

Well video is ready, but with mistake: we set camera wrong so the extended boom isn't in video.

But still the video is here:

Also I'll try to finish Studio file next week
