This is a scale model of a MAN TGS dump truck. It was first shown in the 2014, as a side tipping version, I decided to make instructions for it, and it had to be rebuilt in the process. The model has over 2400 parts and features remotely controlled drive, steering and dumping. The drive system uses a Power Function XL motor through two rear axles. Propulsion system is powerful enough to pull over two kgs behind it. In this case, it was two of mine models, wheel loader on a drabwar trailer. Two front axles are steered by a Power Functions Servo motor. The dump bed is elevated by single linear actuator, driven by L motor. The model is powered by a standard Power Functions battery box, which can be easily replaced by tilting the cab. It also powers front Power Functions lights. The model is highly accurate featuring a fully detailed cabin with steering wheel, dashboard, and seats. Exterior features many small details like spare wheel and retractable ladder on the dump bed, which makes the model more realistic. This truck does not use rare parts, which was the main goal in the rebuilding process.
Step by step instructions are intended for medium advanced builders. Electrical routings and connections are highlited in different colours, making the building process easier. The instructions are divided into three major modules, which are frame, cab and dump bed.
Please note that this model requires to cut ⌀3mm hose to specific lengths.
