    Hi Technic-Dragon,
    Very nice MOC! One question though, do you think it is possible to fit the full functioning containerhook, with the original crane and gearbox still in place? At this moment I do not have the intention to RC the truck.

    Hi Technic-Dragon,
    I am near to finishing this build.
    But however I am stuck on how to do arrange the wiring of the motors to the receiver. able to guide me on this as I am unable to get the same result as what you shown in the video. what motor go to link with the polar switch 61929? can help me on this? photos will be appreciated for a clearer explanation.

      Hi, I made this moc and I think the 61929 is only used for switching the led lights on/off.  I havn't used one and everything is just working fine.

    Next step is to build a trailerchassis for it with an extra container, with a possibility to pull it from the trailer to the truck.  😁

    Good job, looks impressive! I like it. Is it possible to add the lxf file to the building instruction. That would be very helpful. Thx and keep up the good work!

    Has anybody build this MOC ?
    I would like to but how can you tell the length of the axles from the video ?

    Wow, very cool mechanism, love how it can work as an ordinary dump truck as well.

    Nice build. I was thinking of doing something similar, but restrain myself to the pieces of the set. So my approach would have been different. Unfortunately, I couldn't come up with a good mechanism for the lift.

    But, this being present now, I may steal your idea for the locking mechanism and give it a shot ;)

    Like your idea a lot. I had a similar idea, but I wanted to pick up the box with either chain drive or hook & string (aka cable).

      Just watched the video, that pretty darn clean design. Nice job. 

      I could the truck being converted to a big-rig tow truck too way that arm moves.
