Lego Technic Caterpillar Dump Truck

Today a jubilant TLCB Elf set a new office record; the most colleagues squished in one event since records began. It seems that whenever an Elf finds a monster remote controlled creation its first instinct is to flatten as many of its co-workers as possible with it. One poor Elf was so ingrained into the tyre tread it was rotating with the wheel to be newly squashed every few seconds.

The tyres in question are third-party RC items, employed here because The LEGO Group simply doesn’t make any large enough. The rest of this creation is 100% authentic Lego though. It’s based on a Caterpillar 795F heavy dump truck – as found in open-cast mines all around the world – and it’s powered by two XL motors, with a further motor controlling the steering and another the lifting of the bucket.

If you’d like to see all of the images then head over to Eurobricks where builder shineyu has started a discussion topic to showcase his work. If you like this creation you might also be interested in an incredible previously blogged Terex excavator that works alongside the 795F in the real world; it’s now available on MOCpages to view, whilst we spend some time giving some lightly injured Elves a ride in the bucket of the Caterpillar.
