G,day everyone. I've decided to enter this competition with a Technic concrete truck. All I have at the moment is a piece of paper saying build a truck. The functions will be: Servo motor for steering L motor for drive L motor for mixing bowl M motor for either a small actuator or pneumatics for the raising and lowering of the chute. Now for the wish list. Rear suspension will hopefully be Hendrickson bolster spring, twin steer so it will be an 8x4, based on the Kenworth K200 and model team size for the challenge to cram it all in there. All going well the bowl will work as to the real thing. As a guess proportion wise the truck will be 45 studs long, 17 wide and from 19 to 30 high with the bowl. Which should make the bowl 27 to 30 studs long and 17 wide. I used some beams connected together looking at a pic of the eight wheeler concrete truck I used to drive with Boral. It had a bowl capacity of 8.5 t but I think that might crush this little truck. Will make 2-3 removable chute extensions and possibly a fake 3 cylinder motor, opening doors and tilting cab. Its all in my head as I ramble on so better stop that and start doing before the functions get bigger then the truck.
