[MOC] Concrete Mixer Truck

Recommended Posts

Hi! It’s time for new MOC :) I’m glad to show you my Concrete Mixer Truck. The project was started almost one year ago, but I’ve finished it only now. I used KAMAZ 6540 trucks as inspiration.

Dimensions: 45 x 12 x 20 cm, weight 1570 g, 2492 pieces.

There are no motors here, all functions are manual:

- 4x8 wheel drive with working V8 piston engine

- 4x8 steering, working steering wheel in the cabin

- pendular suspension on rear axles

- manual drum rotation

- driving wheels drum rotation

- cabin lifting

- opening doors

- opening roof hatch

- folding ladder

- high detailing: mirrors, lights, spare wheel, fuel tank, exhaust, seats, chocks, additional unloading gutter

There are no working unloading system here like in 42112 LEGO set. I wanted to create the drum using only Technic pieces.

Very good looking model! Much much better than official Lego set coming in August!

Lego should just look at your drum, that's how it can be done without a big mould. Great work!

Very nice looking cement truck! It's the same size as 42112, but has twice the pieces and more functions.

Great backdrop too, it's very industrial and Technic-y.

Easily the best looking brick-built cement drum I've ever seen as it actually manages to replicate the shape using Technic parts only and without enormous gaps in it. Nice work on the cabin too.

Thanks a lot! I'm glad you like the model :)

I just have no grey background ) I remember backdrops in old LEGO catalogues, and I've decided to create my own landscape :)
