Kenworth T800 Dump Truck
About this creation
Most builders I've seen that build a semi truck build a tow truck. That's good, but I wanted something different. So I present to you the T800 Kenworth Dump truck with double drop (pusher) axles. I know I promised a strong arm too, but the added weight and lack of space caused me to think twice about it.

The Kenworth T800 has a PACCAR MX engine in it, or a C13 ACERT as Paul Beach suggested. It is one of the larger trucks that Kenworth makes.

Specs:

  • 1 XL motor for drive

  • 1 M motor for steering

  • 1 M motor for the drop axles

  • 1 XL motor for the bed




This truck features my leaf spring suspension on all the axles. Yep even the steering axle. I was having problems with the steering and suspension. I was using the ball and joint steering rods, and springs for the suspension. I want to thank all the people that gave me ideas for the steering. They were greatly appreciated. I decided to make this a solid front axle with springs for suspension.

I use one remote with variable speed control and two channels to control this truck. The IR receivers are in the cab above the battery box they are supposed to be seats.




















































Thanks for looking! Hope you like it!

Quoting Jesse Long Hey, George, you've got a nice Kenworth there. By the way, there's a new guy out there (he also has creations on YouTube) on MOC Pages that's also building Kenworths. He's pretty good, too if you want to check him out.
Thanks :) I'll look around and see if I can find him.

This is a great truck! I've never been very good at large scale vehicles. I really like the detail, just one thing, the headlights are a bit small. Anyways great work.

Nice work. All you need is to spend about a few hundred dollars for the chrome parts instead of the light gray. Keep on truckin'

Quoting Jon Treasure The video was amazing! I love how you gave us some instructions on how to build the suspension! Wonderful. I just had to comment twice!
Thanks! the suspension is good for big trucks. It is a little stiff tho once you put it on all the axles.

Quoting george decato Nice truck. I build in 16 wide wich I think is more of a scale width.
That's cool. I just build to my limiting factor, which is usually the tires/width of the steering mechanism.

This is brilliant! Really neat looking Dumper. The only thing I can see that needs work is the gappy bonnet/hood. Other than that it's perfecto!

You got skills George, I've never seen anyone do the grill like that, it looks killer! The tag axles are nice too, they flop around like the real thing, great build! Chris

Quoting MortalSwordsman . George you are a very talented builder. Great work figuring out the steering issue and all these power functions are excellent. I would really like to see your leaf spring technique. Looking forward to the video.
Hey thanks! I had a awesome breakthrough with the suspension/steering. I will add how to build the suspension in my video. Which should be up by Friday. Also Thanks to everyone for looking and commenting!!!! :D

Quoting Paul Beach I know of a technique where a pusher can have the leveling effects of a stinger, if you're interested? I just don't like pushers from a weight transfer standpoint. Nothing against the T800 though! (change PACCAR MX to C13 ACERT) lol, jk!
Sure I'd like to learn. I dont really see the object of pusher axles. The main goal of them is to please the DOT. Haha I will add that engine!
