Sandvik TH550
1:19 scale model of 50 ton underground haul truck.
About this creation
Sandvik TH550 is a 50 ton underground truck built for tough working conditions.
It took me two months to build its model, and I'm quite pleased with the result.

From the mechanical side it's not complicated, single PF M for steering and single XL motor for drive (4x4). Tipper is raised by four old type red pneumatic cylinders, fed from manual pump hidden behind the side radiator. I wanted to make it fully IR operated, but unfortunately Linear Actuators were to weak to raise the tipper. Anyway, it works good in current configuration.

The real machine:

And a movie showing how it works:



Thanks for watching :)
