  1. Hello everyone, I have been in contact with a few fellow eurobrickers and some of them have wanted a truck topic where we can all share different designs for our trucks and trailers. These designs could also include maybe some clever and effecient suggestions to show others how you made your amazing MOC! All forms of trucks are accepted tow trucks to mighty expedition trucks! Post your truck, or gain inspiration from others! For starters I will share mine: A sporty flatbed truck!

    [MOC] Volvo FH

    I finally did it, I've built a Volvo. It took me little more than a month to design, collect parts and build it, which is pretty short for my standards, I usually take (or loose) more time to fully complete a MOC of these proportions. The scale is, roughly, 1/20 and it has some functional features. Using LEGO power functions the vehicle can drive, steer, lift its 2nd drive axle, flash its beacon lights and operate the hooklift system. To be perfectly honest, not all of its features work the way I wanted them to work. The chassis was a bit small to incorporate all of these functions. I may design a new chassis at some point (more of that below) For me the highlight of this model is the cab really, getting the proportions of an FH right was a challenge, I had to make many compromises, choose the lesser of two evils. Of all truck brands, the Volvo just has the most complex design to replicate in the brick. But that is of course because a Volvo is the most pretty truck of them all after all. As I am employed at Volvo Trucks I simply had to build Volvo’s flagship. When Covid is over, I’ll drive it around the office landscape :). You may have noticed, the cab is not a square box, I spent a lot of time figuring out how to best approach the silhouette of the FH cab. It gets slightly more narrow higher up. The chassis is packed, I had to fit the battery box and two receivers in the cab, which is one of the reasons why there's no interior. Now, I'm sure some of you will most certainly have some suspicions about the feasibility of my hooklift system here... And they would be right! To be honest, the hooklift doesn't work all that well, lifting a container is a bit too much. It was only after I had completed the chassis that I learned about some sort of quality problem with those linear actuators I've used. But I think the fact that the very short leverage to rotate the hooklift may also have something to do with it. That of course was a consequence of the limited stroke of these actuators. This calls for the new longer actuators! ... However, that means I'll have to completely redesign the chassis... I have a couple of WIP pictures that I may share later. I hope you like it!
  3. Hi everyone After one year I finished another MOC. Here I present my wheel loader inspired by Volvo wheel loader L120H with technic chassis and creator style body. The model is controlled by two Sbricks an powered by one small PF battery boy. The boom and the bucket are controlled with pneuamtic cylinders coupled to a geared servo motor with the newest pneumatic valves. Like this it is possible to control "heavy" loads precisely. Furthermore, the model has an auto compressor which is controlled via the BrickController2 app, where it is possible to add one port of the Sbrick (here the compressor) to two independent other functions (here the two servo motors with the valves). Like this the pump always switches on as soon as one of the pneumatic function is selected. But check the functionality in the following video: Instruction is available on rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-64106/FT-creations/wheel-loader-inspired-by-volvo/#details
  4. Hello! I finally completed my new Moc: a Volvo L120H wheel loader in 1:17,3 scale. I started this project about 1,5 years ago, then I had a pause during last spring/summer, and I restarted working on it on October 2017. It has 4 powered fuctions: - forward/backward (L motor) - steer (2 mini LAs powered by M motor) - rise/lower main arm (2 LAs powered by L motor) - bucket (1 mini LA powered by M motor) All the electric components are hidden inside the bonnet, except one M motor which is in the cab. The main goal was to obtain the correct movement of the arm and the bucket. I worked with the original drawings scaled to the model size. At the end, the linkage works quite well and the bucket stays parallel during the movement of the arm. The battery box is on the back and can be easily be easily removed to change the batteries. Stickers are home-made. I'd like to change the rims with the 6 pin holes rims, but at the moment I only have the 3 pin holes ones. FInally, a short video, but I'm going to make an outdoor video soon : Enjoy!
  5. Post your 42114 mods here. Does someone has a fix for the "hanging head" aka weak pivot joint for the front section of the truck?
  6. it seems a bit early, but we know how it looks and know its dimensions, so we can go to improve it: first planetary drive for more power now how it works
  7. Hi eurobrikers, Here is my current project. A Volvo FH truck destinated to be part of a larger play set using the TLG Volvo EW160. The whole model will have a crane truck full RC, a trailer and the EW160 official lego excavator. As always i build this for my son and so i t needs to be really playable set with lots of function fun to play with. Regarding to this the new Volvo EW160 inspired me. So the concept is to have a fully rc truck with manuals function added to it. The toy will have pneumatics, PFS, RC, manuals functions.... so much for a child to enjoy! My goal with it : Truck : 7 motorised functions + RC PF light = 8 channels on standards Rc official system. Propulsion by L motor Direction by servo on first and second axle with reduction . report to the cab Deploying stabilisator by rotation. Able to set up the stabilisator on 180° : M motor Stabilisator up and down: M motor Crane rotation: M motor First section of the crane arm: M motor Second section of the crane arm: M motor All the these functions are realised and integrated into the framme actually. All working very smothly and with corrects speeds. Time for some pictures of the WIP : I have now to face some difficulties and have to answer some question. What is your opinion guys on these points : 1 Color of the rear crane ? actually thinking for black, to fit with the EW160 design or orange? 2 Position of the two PF receivers, actually in trouble with that, no neat solution 3 tilting bed. The EW 160 is equiped to load a bedactually. Cannot imagine not being able to lift it. The problem is Zero place for an additionnal motor into the frame. Thinking to lift it manualy ? Thanks for your feedback on these points.
  8. Hey , i am Daniel ( new to the site btw) i am sure that many of you know the volvo a40g made by dgustafsson13 4 years ago , since the first time i saw his video i wanted to have mine , so few months ago i started making it. My main requierement was to make a working tiltable bed , for that i had to fit 3 motors , after finishing the chassis i started with the rest which was very challenging because i tryed to match as much as possible my version with dgustafson´s.The hauler turned into cool consisting of 1150 parts and FREE INSTRUCTIONS (i was allowed by Dgustafsson) LINK TO REBRICKABLE (FREE INSTRUCTIONS): https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-42577/DLTC /volvo-a40g-articulated-hauler-dump-truck/#parts VOLVO A40G Articulated hauler Render of the mechanisms : -Dark purple : drive -Green : steering -Red : bed tilting Sticker sheet with display sheet is avaiable here : https://www.ultimatecollectorstickers.co.uk/product-page/lego-technic-ucs-moc-sticker-for-volvo-a40g Here you can see dgustafsson´s video: IF you like my work , you can support it : https://paypal.me/DAngos?locale.x=es_ES Inatructions were designed using a sbrick but it can be built using Buwizz or IR (i have recently tryed with buwizz and infrared myself and it was easy to fit)

    MOC: Volvo dump truck

    Volvo dump truck, with tipper bed from set 4434. Rear Wheel mudguards need to be attached to the bed....
  11. Hello! This is my latest model: Volvo EC750E in 1:22 scale. Starting point is the 8043 "ultimate" with 6 motors for 6 functions. The undercarriage is 90% the same, I only had to make it 4 studs longer, and added some details. It also has tracks tensioners. 2 of the motors are hidden in the panel-built arm. In this way, I removed the universals joints in the pivot of the main boom, so it works more fluently, and the arm can be thinner (3 studs at the beginning, then 5 studs). The LAs are a bit shorter for this excavator, but I'm quite satisfied by the range of movement. The battery box is on the back and acts as a counterweight. The stickers are home-made. Pneumatic tubes are fake of course... I will make a video in the next days (and better photos). Happy new year to everybody!
  12. Hi everyone. Here is my entry for this contest. As always i've build this with/for my childrens and as usual this model hass to be safe and secure for them. This said, i've been asking for long what to build for this contest. I didn't have that much pneumatics elements and i do thought that my chances with this contest were proportionals to the number of pneumatic parts i owned. Until i had a closer look at 42053 set... So i present here my vision of what could be a Volvo Handler (i think volvo didn't build this kind of machine) here it is: it is a very simple Moc. My main goal has been to integrate the powerfunctions elements (1 BB + 1 motor) and get the maximum playability with the Moc. I do use the battery pack as the main frame assembly of the model. this way, i think i realised one good design work on it. They are 3 pneumatics functions: 1- Main arm up and down 2- Fork tilting 3 - Fork thooth up and down. Also, there is one direction with HOG on the four wheels.This Moc is designed to be playable and fun to use. It doesn't need more function to scratch that goal ;) The functions work pretty well and the compressor is a very pleasant feature on a Moc like this one. The arm movement has a good range of action and is particulary powerfull due to the large pneumatics cylinder i used. ( i didn't have any other o:) ) Here is a back view. round design for the mudgards, a color scheme that fits with it's great sister 45053, custon stikers (official stikers sheet): On this view you can see the commands (3 orange commands) : the two backwards are for the arm movement and the lateral one is for the fork opening Detailed view of the fork i used. It is obvisouly possible to connect a regular bucket at this arm end: And once it is opened Detailed view on back design with the official Volvo stikers on it and the rounded mudgards In conclusion this Moc come perfectly together the 42053 Set and as well with my last Volvo crane truck. It was a great building experience (and realy quick build :) ) Hope you'll enjoy it. Regards, Steph Ps video coming hopefully before the dateline :)
  13. Hello everyone! I posted a new video to explain how I built the tracks and the tensioner for my cutom Volvo excavator.
  14. Yes, another C-model of the 42078 set In the last 3 months I enjoyed my spare time in building a C-model of the 42078 Mack Anthem. My truck is an 8x4 flatbed version, with foldable crane behind the cab. I worked a lot on the cab shape, as already mentioned in @grego18f topic, who was building a Volvo FH too! It has opening doors but no tilting cab and no fake engine (I preferred a better looking cab than changing the shape to let the cab tilt). The crane is functional (all functions are manual), knobs are on both sides of the model. Main problem is the absence of the turntable. The crane is quite stable, but of course cannot load heavy loads. You can of course mod it adding a small turntable Outriggers control knob is on the back: I added 2 attachments: fake hook with chains, to move a small container, and forklift to move small pallets. Video: Model consists of around 1500 parts (so you have around 1000 leftover parts - mostly small parts and Lego System bricks). Instructions can be found on rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-34643/technicprojects/volvo-crane-truck Stickers are custom made and could be available for purchase soon. I hope you like it!
  15. Hi Lego friends! A short video of my Lego truck, a Volvo F12 Globetrotter log truck. I've been building it over the last couple of years, when money and energy has been present. It's close to 1:10 in scale and weight is 7,1 kilos. It's driven by two buggy motors and the steering is provided by one XL motor. Until the other day it also had a gearbox, but when making the video that gearbox failed utterly so I removed the whole thing and connected the motors straight to the axles for now. There's some more information in the video description if you are interested in the build. It's quite uncertain if I will work more on this truck or not, maybe it will be scrapped, but at least I wanted to share this short video of it here. Hope you enjoy!
  16. Hello Everyone, here is my new MOC: Fully RC Volvo EC950EL with head made big bucket. it has two XL motors for driving, 1 XL motor for XL turntable, 4L Motors for Arm moving. very interested it can play with real soil. Video:
  17. Hey guys, here's a new project I started recently. It is a model of the Volvo EC350E excavator, featuring pneumatics and SBrick control. As of right now I have the superstructure completed. All electronics for the model are contained within here. At the center of the superstructure is a 8043-style gearbox that switches the 3 L motors between left track, right track, and superstructure rotation, respectively, and boom valve, jib valve, and bucket valve, respectively. A M motor powers the gearbox shifting and the pneumatic pump simultaneously. This is possible thanks to a clutch gear on the gearbox shifting mechanism, allowing the motor to drive the pump even when shifting is complete. This will be my last MOC before I go off to college. I move in next Thursday, so I'll try to get at least most of it done before I leave. I won't be building as much anymore with college starting - maybe a MOC or two over breaks. However, if I don't get this MOC done before I leave I'll try to finish it in small increments in the weekends I come home. Photos:

    Volvo H9X

    Volvo H9X Specification of the excavator Length 60s / width 31s / height 20s (47/24,5/16 cm) - without excavator arm Max dimensions of excavator arm: 60x35 cm(length x width) Weight: 3637 g Front suspension: none Rear suspension: none AWD Steered both axles Power - 2x 8878 BB 3x M 4xL 2x XL 3x Servo Specification of the trailer Length 55s / width 25s / height 17s (44/20/13,5 cm) Weight: 1398 g Power: 1x 8881 BB 1x XL Functions Driving - 2x XL Steering - M Gearbox - M Lifting the blade - M Excavator rotation - L Movement of the arm - 3L + 3 Servos Lifting the trailer's tipping bed - XL Today, I want to present wheeled excavator Volvo H9X with trailer. Model was built for Lego contest „Build the construction machines of the future”. Later it received many improvements… In short: it is wheeled excavator without operator’s cabin. I didn’t pattern the model on any real machine. As a scale I took Claas’s wheels. For driving there are two XL motors, which drive the 4 wheels, through two-speed gearbox. First gear ratio is 5:1, and second 1,8:1. The gears are changed by M motor and two 1x7 racks. Both axles are steered by M motor with gear ratio 3:1. In the front there are blade, driven by another M motor. In the upper part of the excavator there are three comperssors for three pnematic functions. First, which drives the four big pnematic cylinders, consists of L motor and two pnematic pumps. Next two compressors are the same (L motor + one pump) and they drive the pneumatic cylinders for moving second section of the arm and the bucket. The valves are steered by three Servos. For excavator rotation I used L motor with gear ratio 155:1. In the front there are double Led lights, powered by a switch. The trailer is a simple liftarm construction. The bed is tipped by one linear actuator driven by XL motor. It is powered by switch, because of lack of free channels on the IR receivers. Gallery
  19. The Volvo FMX is an oddly styled truck, its bulldog nose like design stood out to me instantly. Having an inherent weakness for the odd I decided to build one all the way back in 2015. Four years later I proudly present my latest model :). Developing the Palfinger crane took the better half of the development time for this model. In order to house all the electronics necessary a flatbed truck design was chosen with 4 axles, 2 under the bed and 2 to support the crane and cabin. The crane is operated by 3 servo-controlled pneumatic switches, the newer style switch allowed me to build this more compact than we ever could! The Pneumatic cylinders for the extension sections have been modified to allow for a more realistic reach. Two original cylinders were cut and acetone welded together for each one of them. The compressor is powered by an L motor and assisted by a rubber band to reach the pressures necessary to operate the crane. The crane is able to reach the back of the bed, as was my goal, but isn't able to lift much anymore then, the limit of pneumatic control is really stretched when a single-cylinder needs to push an arm of 30+cm on a point 5 studs away from the pivot point. With all this functionality, details are fun but also frustrating to add. Two tiny tool compartments have been fitted on the rear of the truck stowing away lifting equipment. The engine is only built for the upper 2/3 to accommodate for the suspended axles and steering mechanisms. The model is also fitted with a full custom led kit. A custom electronics board with an Arduino pro mini takes the signals from the Sbricks and converts them into turn signals, driving lights, hazard lights and much much more. More can be seen on the Flickr album and in the Youtube video!
  20. Hello everybody, during this holidays I purchased the 42081 and decided to build it a little different. First, I made some minor changes in design, to look a little more similar to the "real" Zeux. I changed some color here and there; the yellow panels in the middle are different; the placement of the "02" adhesives is on the lower DBG panels instead of the upper ones. But the biggest MOD was to add the pneumatic system, with motorized pump, instead of manual LAs. The valves are located on the sides of the loader, 2 on the left and 2 on the right. There are 2 big cilinders (to rise the arm and the rear axle) and 2 medium (old) cilinders, to operate the bucket and the counterweight. Here you can see the last cilinder, the pump and the motor, located below the battery box: And here is a short video:
  21. Hello! In march I completed my latest Moc, and today I took some photos. It's a wheel loader Volvo L 350H in 1.22 scale. It is an updated version of L 350G by Lego, which I used as parts pack. The bucket is in 1.22 scale, so I decided to build in this scale. I used XL motor for driving, and M motor for steering, by 2 mini LAs. Arm and bucket are controlled by L and M motors, and they have quite good movement range. Battery box and receivers are inside the bonnet. The tyres are third party, 96mm diameter. Sticker are home made! I hope you like it!
  22. Hi Again, I can not find an unopened boxed set of 42030 in perfect condition. I of course will pay as long as the price is not "over the clouds". I live in Istanbul. Can anyone help me in this? Many thanks in advance, Idris PS: The admins can lead me to a "buying-selling" topic, if any, because I couldn't find one as a newbie.
  23. Hi, I recently went back to Lego after a while and have decided to try replicating the new Volvo L350H wheel loader. This MOC is meant to fit the scale of my improved Mack Anthem (dimensions corrected): So, it is roughly 1:22 scale. The finished product will be red (yeah, another red loader) and will be equipped as the one above.All of the functions will be manual, except the arm movement operated thanks to Power Functions. I have obviously begun by the front end of the loader. This was quite hard for me to put all the functions in, as the quasi-vertical cylinders, while keeping proportions correct. The front is quite robust, and functions run smoothly. I think I manage to get a correct Z linkage (see photos). I am now building the rear part of the loader. It will have a 42078 inspired engine as I think the Lego cylinders are way too big for this scale. In addition, there will be a pendular axle and easy battery replacement. Mechanical functions will be operated by an L motor via gearboxes. In the following photos, you can see how I progressed. At this stage, there is mainly beaming to delimit the spaces (cabin, trunk, etc). At first, I wanted to put two two-way gearboxes, but it resulted that I have not enough room because I am limited to 7 studs wide in most parts of the loader (this is partially due to the 94.8 wheels and scale). I ended up with a simple gearbox... Be aware, the gears are not held properly, but I just wanted to show the routing. This one is meant to reduce the number of gears and thus maximize lifting capacity. https://bricksafe.com/pages/grego18f/mack-granite/volvo-l350h If I submit this loader at its early development stages, this is to obtain your feedback. I really think there is room for improvement (and maybe two-way gearboxes!). So, any suggestion is welcome. At the same time, I am reworking the lower central articulation. In the previous iteration, I realized there would be 2 studs ground clearance. That is why I ended with the actual design (allowing 3 studs ground clearance). I am not yet satisfied with the connection because it limits the lateral movement of the U-joints… That’s all for now ?
  24. I am finally done with my first real MOC that I am happy with and proud to show to all of you LEGO fans out there. This is my version of the Volvo L120H wheel loader. It is build in scale 1:17. I have used a M-motor for the sterring and bucket tipping, a L-motor for the bucket-arm lifting and a XL-motor for the drive. All of them are geared down to ensure enough power (except the sterring). I am using two standard IR receivers and the small rechargeable battery pack. I have considered lights but I think the wires will look messy. I am considering building it in Stud.io to get a brick count and if I do that then instruction might be an option. I have made it from these specs (page 18): https://www.volvoce.com/-/media/volvoce/global/products/wheel-loaders/wheel-loaders/brochures/brochure_l110h_l120h_stagev_en_21_20057313_b.pdf?v=QA5EPw Worker on Studio gallery: https://www.bricklink.com/v3/studio/design.page?idModel=82000 Worker instructions: http://liex.dk/LEGO_MOCs/Worker_1-17/Worker - scale 1-17.pdf And now for the pictures, I hope you enjoy.
