I have finally found the time to finish this MOC of a Morooka tracked dumper.

800x600.jpg

It is loosely based on the Morooka MST 2200VD. 

640x673.jpg

The model is controlled using an S-brick and powered by the regular lego technic power functions battery box. 

Each track is driven by an PF L motor with a 1:1 ratio, giving the model plenty of speed and enough torque to drive over obstacles etc. 

Dumping is also motorized using a PF L motor driving a linear actuator.

The battery box is hidden under the openable hood, and can be easily accessed and removed (although a lot easier if the dumpbed is up :))

Other functions include an openable door and a lock for the gate on the dumpbed, that opens if you dump.

I tried to make a video but you guys will have to wait a bit longer because my baby is making a lot of noise in the background so I have to make a new one sometime when he is asleep :)

Edit: made a new video - the period in the beginning when nothing happens is when the buwizz in the tractor fails to connect

Let me know what you think!

Thanks for all the comments! Baby is asleep so here is a retry of the video :)

There is a long period of nothing in the beginning when the buwizz in the tractor fails to connects :)

Nice little, well thought out build, like what you have done there. Tractor looks pretty damn good as well.

Tracked dumpers are very cool and it also moves pretty good. :thumbup: for the MOC and your driving abilities!

I saw something similar before and it got on my 'I wanna build this one day' list. Your dumper looks good and seems to drive well. Any changes on building instructions or detailed pics of the mechanics and inside for a rebuild :)

For sure I will build it. Just have to order few parts and disassembly one or two builds... Stay tuned.

You prefer to have my feedback here or via PM?
