About this deal

This LEGO Technic advanced building set is designed to provide an immersive and rewarding building experience. Then, the knobs at the end are rotated together, with a bit of trail and error, to lift and move the container over the side of the trailer. The trailer is more 'traditional studless Technic' than the Anthem but that's not a bad thing at all. The unloading mechanism is suitably complex and works well once you have the hang of it.

The bodywork is built using the parts in bags three and four. What becomes apparent during construction is that this is almost a hybrid Technic/System set. A lot of System parts have been used to create the curved lines around the front wheels, the headlight arrays, the steps to the cab. and the front grille.

Manual

Fill out an Inventory Change Request ( ?) [ Show Inv Item IDs ] if you found an error in this inventory. Features authentically designed bodywork, front-axle steering, rear wheel drive, 6 cylinder straight engine with moving pistons and spinning radiator fan, detailed driver’s cab with opening doors, adjustable seats, steering wheel, dashboard, sun visors and a bunk bed, and adjustable wing mirrors. The front of the chassis is much more interesting. Unusually, the straight-6 engine, which is connected to the rear wheels, is not constructed using the normal cylinder parts. They would be too big, so instead axles with bushes on the top are employed, pushed up by a cam shaft made using six 2l beams with an axle hole. There is just one new part in the set: the gold bulldog hood ornament, which has a 1l Technic axle at the bottom to allow attachment.

There's some neat mechanical coupling involved to get it working in the confined space available, which you might be able to see in the next two photos showing wheels turned left and then right.This LEGO® Technic advanced building set is designed to provide an immersive and rewarding building experience.

There's a mechanism operated by the gear on the side to raise and lower the balancing wheel, for use when it's not attached to the tractor unit.

Generally, once you have the hang of it, it works well. The knobs require quite a lot of force to turn, as a result of the weight of the container, so once the novelty has worn off you probably won't be operating it frequently. Upload an Image in the specific color if you have one and the one in the above listing is not available. Construction begins at the rear of the chassis, which is fairly straightforward. The axles are connected via differentials, as you'd expect. Above the wheels the plate for attaching the trailer can be seen. Lift the hood to reveal a detailed 6 cylinder straight engine with moving pistons and spinning radiator fan.
