Got Wood?

Lego Peterbilt 389 Forestry Truck

Yes, yes we do. A lot of it. Thanks to Mathjis Bongers and his Peterbilt 389 and Manac forestry trailer. There’s more to see on Flickr – click the link above to get your pecker up.

Town Truckin’

Lego MAN Truck Dakar

These excellent Town-scale trucks were suggested to us by a reader. They come from Flickr’s Smigol, and they are wonderfully realistic. Above are a pair of MAN TGS Dakar race trucks, whilst below another MAN is joined by a Volvo FH, this time in logging specification. There’s more to see of all the details, including several posable working features, at the link above.

Timber!

Lego Technic Scania Truck

‘Tis the season of cutting down trees, dressing them in tinsel and watching them… er, slowly die. But mankind’s appetite for timber is year-round, and it is machines like this that keep the supply of wood coming.

This is a Scania R620 logging truck, complete with centrally-mounted crane and 4-axle trailer. Built by Zbiczasty of Brickshelf it has a huge array of LEGO’s most trick parts squeezed inside it. Working lights, remote control steering and all-wheel-drive all feature, plus – much like LEGO’s own flagship models – Zbiczasty has combined these with a pneumatics system for even more realism.

Lego Pneumatic Crane

A Power Functions motor compresses air for the pneumatic cylinders, which power the stabilising feet, crane boom and the wood-handling grab. These are all mid-mounted between the tractor unit and the trailer, thus allowing logs to be loaded seamlessly onto both structures.

There’s a large gallery of excellent images, including some close-up photographs of some of the more intricate parts of the build, available via Brickshelf – click the link above to see more of Zbiczasty’s superb build.

KrAZy!

Lego KrAZ 255B Trucks

MOCpages’ Ingmar Spijkhoven, a veteran of The Lego Car Blog, is back, with not one but three incredible remote controlled KrAZ 255B trucks. In fact there are nine models, once all the possible combinations of tractor and payload are included.

Powered by an XL motor each, with 6×6 drive, a working V8 engine, servo steering and solid axle suspension on all wheels, Ingmar’s KrAZ trucks are an engineering triumph.

Lego KrAZ Truck Trial

Ingmar has designed three versions of the KrAZ 255B; flatbed, truck-trial (above) and logging (below). All are available to view on MOCpages, where full technical details can also be found, along with an extensive gallery of the features of each truck and payload combination. Click the link above to make the jump.

Extreme Loggers

Lego MAZ 537 Truck

This monster MAZ-537 logging truck was discovered not by our Elves, who are now sulking, but by one of you. It’s been built by Pavol Vanek of Flickr, and it is quite simply one of the most impressive Technic models we’ve seen this year.

The MAZ-537 was designed for the soviet military (like pretty much everything else from Communist eastern Europe) and was manufactured from 1959 until 1990. It was powered by a 39 litre 12-cylinder diesel engine coupled with a three-speed hydromechanical transmission, featured 4-wheel-steering and 4-wheel-drive, and it could carry 50 ton loads.

Pavol’s superb Lego recreation features all of this (minus the crazy gearbox), plus some clever pneumatics that allow his MAZ-537 to fulfil its post-military civilian role.

There’s lots more to see at Pavol’s photostream – join in the extreme logging here.

Lego Logger

Lego Kenworth Log Truck

One of the few Elves left at TLCB Towers returned today with this; a huge Kenworth T800 Logging Truck. Flickr’s Brickbaron has presented his truck using some excellent outdoorsy photography, something we’d like to see more often here at TLCB. You can check the Kenworth out here.

Yule Log

Logging Truck

Another tenuous Christmas link

Another day, another tenuous link between Christmas and MOC we’d like to feature. Anyway, 2LegoOrNot2Lego has built this wonderful logging truck, which like an earlier featured MOC from BricksonwheelsMOC, has been lavishly chromed. This truck is also remote control via LEGO Power Functions; check out the video on 2LegoOrNot2Lego’s MOCpage.
