Stig of the Dump

Lego Landfill Compactor

The Lego Car Blog is not a fan of landfills. They’re smelly, wasteful, and produce copious quantities of the global-warming contributor methane. However they are here to stay, at least for a while yet, so until they’re consigned to the history books man needs a way of moving all this waste about.

The answer is the awesome Landfill Compactor. Based on front-loader or bulldozer chassis these enormous machines look apocalyptically cool with massive metal spiked wheels and a huge front mounted blades. Perfect for hooning around a mountain of rubbish.

Jorge Gargia has built a brilliant tiny Technic version of a Caterpillar Landfill Compactor; it steers via centre articulation and features a raising and lowering blade by turning the exhaust stack. We think it’d make a great Technic introduction set. Certainly better than LEGO’s current one anyway. You can see all the photos of Jorge’s model on MOCpages here.
