Truck with dump trailer
I do not own this set (8285)but wanted to build a version of the B-model with a dump trailer behind it. The 2 are RC controlled, Truck has light and m-motor for steering and xL for driving, The dump trailer uses a m-motor for lifting(the motor has to work really hard). Comments are welcome.

Hi Geoffrey, Thanks for your comment. let me know when your mod is finished love to see it. For the trailer..I remember that the motor had difficulty with the weight of the tiltbed.
Quoting geoffrey boulton love what you have done with this b model .i have just finished building this b model myself and was thinking how to motorize it and here it is already done so i will try to do the same as you have if you don`t mind ps the trailer is very impressive well done

Hi George, Thanks for your comment. The motor drives 3:1 (24 tooth gear and 8 tooth gear) followed by 8:1 (the 24 tooth and the wormwheel are on the same axis. wormwheel gears to a 8 tooth gear), gear wheel on the steering axis has 12 tooth (connecting to the 8 tooth gear). Does this all make sense.....I feel it is to slow but no more room.....
Quoting George Staples Sweet! I really like how you mounted the steering motor, what is your gear ratio on it? I think you have enough room under the dump trailer to fit another m motor and actuator, so it doesn't have to work as hard. The trailer is very good.

very nice truck, is the cab based on set no 8285 'b' model? As for the trailer, very impressive, I am in the middle of modifying one of my sets, and was wondering if a 'm' motor and actuator would be strong enough to lift it, as it is not as big as this hopefully it will be ok.

Super spiffy! I like the trailer, very smooth. Nifty functions, too.

Impressive build. Easily good enough to be an official model. I love the cab design.
