About this model

Although designed to be robust, the combined liftarm and old style technic construction of this truck causes the frame to be rather fragile. This is one of the reasons why this model has been discontinued and replaced by the vastly superior model.

Other reasons include a poorly attached rear bumper, the saddle of the coupling being too tall to work properly and rear wheels with poor grip.



The Power Functions components of this truck are connected as follows


Remote controls

We recommend using the Power Functions remote for controlling this truck.

If the truck is to be driven by people who do not have experience with LEGO Power Functions, then we recommend using our modified remote which blocks the channel selector and uses a long axle as a pointing device.

Building instructions for this LEGO model

The building instructions are made by building the LEGO models in MLCad and generated in LDView using an old version of LPub. All this software is part of LDraw.
