Luckily one of the Elves found a creation perfect for rehabilitating a TLCB Writer post breakdown. This huge Volvo 8×4 FH16 truck, trailer and A60H dump truck combo comes from previous bloggee Shineyu, and it’s a truly incredible feat of Lego engineering.
Underneath the wonderfully realistic exteriors of each model are a host of Technic Power Functions motors, powering the drive, steering and – in the A60H’s case – the giant dumping bucket.
You can squeeze a lot of Elves in said bucket, and Shineyu’s A60H is powerful enough to carry them all down the corridor, (whooping with delight), towards the office entrance (still whooping), through the doors (whooping subsiding), into the car park (whooping ceased), and towards the pond (whooping replaced by panic).
The Lego Car Blog Office is a much quieter place now, and this writer can confirm that the Volvo A60H’s dumping mechanism works wonderfully. Whilst he enjoys a peaceful day at TLCB Towers you can check out our favourite creation for some time courtesy of the Eurobricks discussion forum here, and you can watch both Volvo trucks in action thanks to the video below.
