Iveco Trakker 8×8 – Picture Special

Lego Iveco Trakker Dump Truck 8x8 RC

It’s time for something very very special. This incredible Technic creation is the latest build from the brilliant Lucio Switch, and it’s one of the finest examples of Technic engineering that you will find anywhere on the ‘net.

Based on the Iveco Trakker 8×8 dump truck Lucio’s creation is packed full of magnificent technical wizardry. The extensive list of functions includes a working 8×8 remote control drivetrain, with four XL Motors providing the drive whilst another two Servo Motors steer the first and second axles. Each axle is suspended, with Technic shock absorbers damping the front two axles and working leaf springs managing the rearmost two.

A fifth motor powers a pneumatic pump that supplies pressure to three cylinders and valves which tilt the cab, raise and lower the load bed, and allow pneumatic pressure to reach a rear trailer hitch. Four sets of LEDs illuminate the front and rear lights, a sixth motor controls a working winch, and there’s a realistic inline 6-cylinder piston engine mounted under the cab. All of these functions can be controlled via a bluetooth device thanks two two third-party SBricks linked to twin on-board LiPo batteries.
