Fairly Massive Yellow Lorry
There was something like this parked by the beach recently - saw it, liked it, had to build it...
About this creation
This thing was huge - totally dwarfing the cars parked around it, which it could have run over without noticing! Wish I'd got a picture of the real one, but it looked something like this :



It's some kind of dump truck thing with wheels taller than me (I'm not short...) that's usually found in quarries. It steers by an articulated joint behind the cab and is 6 wheel drive. These features are present on the model as well, along with a working tipper bed and a V6 engine.



Lego themselves did a set like this recently - the 8264 Hauler - but mine's bigger, so there!



Geartastic underside for the six wheel drive... Chassis' good and strong too.



... which meant space was tight for a proper ram-type mechanism for the tipper bed so I cheated - still works fine via the wheel on the side.



The steering can be controlled by the HOG wheel on top of the cab, or the wheel inside, for those with tiny hands...



I'd like one for the school run :-)

This is brilliant. It looks as though it should have been in the Technic range in the early 80s, along with the yellow fork lift truck that I had as a 11 year old. I like how the drive goes through the hinge to drive the rear wheels.

Pretty impressive build! I like your tipper mechanism. It's great how technic builds often require you to come up with different ways of achieving your goal. It has similar, attractive styling to the 856 bulldozer, although yours is more angular. It looks fantastic and it has great functions! Top marks for you! :-)

That good old yellow... Reminds me of my first technic set: the fork-lift truck (850). I like the way you keep the spirit of "teaching" developped by those sets. Everything works and one can see how, great for kids!! Nice Lorry!!

I love old school stuff and this does not fail to dissapoint! Should have gone for the older style differentials, pistons and turntable to make it totally old school but I understand the reasoning!

That is indeed a fairly Massive Yellow Lorry. I'd love to start working in that scale too but most certainly that will lead to me having to change my marital status! LOL! Great job on this!

Those things are awesome aren't they? We have an old dirt parking lot around here where they keep all that huge equipment. Your dumptruck looks fantastic, much better than the set and still with all the functionality.

Oh Yes this is awesome. l love the 6 wheel drive system - cogs everywhere. I also like the front wheel arches and of course the huge bucket. Saw it, liked it, want it, but i seriously doubt that it will fit on your transporter.

This is mega, I love it. I know that feeling of seeing something and simply having to build it in Lego. Great job!

For a "Massive", it's a massive man! great work! ; )

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera I remember seeing a transit flatbed with four giant wheels on the back it just shows you how massive they actually are.
I have a photo my father shot years ago, on which I am sitting inside the rim of one of these monsters :-)) He made the photo on a construction site during the weekend when the work was paused.

Wow Nick, that's cool. On the thumbnail photo it looks like a die cast model, not like LEGO! Very exact shaping and (as usual) great technic details. My fovourite details are the 6WD and the "double" steering mechanism. I love it, when Technic models can be steered by the "normal" wheel and a HOG steering. Oh, I almost forgot: The classic Technic wheels are perfect for this model. Great job! :-))

Yes, I would say it's moderately massive, but still practical, and nicely geared. How about building a huge taco to fit in the back? That would be awesome!

Quoting Tom Simon I always expect yours to be bigger (and more geary, or gearlicious, or whatever). So what was it doing at the beach? What load was it carrying?
Goodness knows.. it was empty - he wasn't going to steal the sand was he ?

That's a funny looking D-Type ;-). Really like this, I like any kind of quarry related vehicle just for the sheer size of the wheels/buckets. I remember seeing a transit flatbed with four giant wheels on the back it just shows you how massive they actually are.

Nice simple good old-fashioned Technic. Not your best, but only because you set the standard so high. Very good job, it looks like a set from the late '80s (well, the catalogues I have from back then have pictures of stuff like this so I'm assuming most old Technic is made this way!). 8/10
