A 4-axle dump truck, features full pendular suspension, internal compressor and some pneumatics.


Completion date: 12/09/2007
Power: electric (wire-controlled) / pneumatic (fed from internal compressor and detachable manual pump)
Dimensions: length 61 studs / width 20 studs / height 22 studs
Weight:  1.88 kg
Suspension: full pendular, axles 3 and 4 with shock absorbers
Motors: 1 x RC, 1 x 47154, 1 x 71427
Pneumatics: one circuit

Finally a large truck. The basic reason to build this one was to practice the setup of multiple steering axles, as defined by Jennifer Clark:

The truck has a full pendular suspension, with two front axles steered and two rear axles driven. Stability is provided by the shock absorbers at rear axles (two per axle). The setup of the front axles with different steering radius is shown on the photos below. The steering wheel in the cab is fully functional, and a small internal electric compressor is located between 2nd and 3rd axle. Because of the little power given by the compressor, I have added a manual pump behind the cab, that can be detached and used to help the compressor with heavy loads.

    Hi! Nice model! I had 1 question though. What tires do you use? And what set/sets do they come in?

    Kilka, ale najlepiej wychodzi się kupując klocki na sztuki.

    Kupowałem je w małych ilościach przez kilka lat. Naprawdę nie rozumiem sensu takiego pytania – same przecież do mnie nie przybiegły.
