About this model

This MAN TGS cement truck is a relatively sturdy construction. There are, however, a couple of things which are recommended should you desire to build your own:

Please refer to the pictures further down which show how to connect the electrical components of this model.

In the building instructions you will encounter some assisting images showing how to route the wires. It is recommended to use this routing. The wires in the pictures are color coded similarly to the picture furhter down on this page.

Please check that all the functions work while you are building the model.

Watch the video to see how to control the functions and how to load the barrel.



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.
