Lego Snow Plow Train

Your Mom likes a good plow, so today we’ve got one. This is a replica of a PKP 411S-121, and it’s been recreated beautifully by Maciej Drwięga of Flickr. Exquisite detail abounds, and you can see all of the superb photos of Maciej’s build at his photostream via the link above.

Winter is Coming…

Lego Technic Snow Plough Gritting Truck RC

Well, it is if you’re reading this in the Northern hemisphere. Plus we heard your Mom likes a good plough*, so today we’ve got one! Built by Damian Plesniak it’s quite a bit of kit too, and it’s absolutely packed with working functionality.

Fully remote controlled, Damian’s MAN truck includes working drive (via an XL Motor), steering (via a Servo), plough* blade raising/lowering, blade rotation and gritter rotation (powered by a Medium Motor each), plus a tilting cabin, opening doors, a working V6 engine and LED lights.

There’s lots more to see at both Flickr and Eurobricks, where you can also find a video showing all of the functions in action.

Blowing Snow

Lego Technic Unimog Snow Blower

Nope, not an 80’s stockbroker snorting a line from the stomach of a lady of negotiable affection, but this – Thirdwigg‘s exceptionally neat Technic snowblower. In fact it’s such a neat creation that when edited onto an official-looking box it could easily pass for a real LEGO set. There’s working steering, blower rotation and elevation adjustment, a working piston engine, and a functioning salt spreader too. You can see all the images on Flickr at the link above, plus you can join the discussion at the Eurobricks forum here.

Lego Technic Toyota Land Cruiser Plough

This beautiful Technic Toyota FJ45 Land Cruiser pick-up was discovered by one of our Elves on MOCpages. It’s the work of Egor Karshiev aka RM8, who has continued to develop his original FJ40 Land Cruiser design that we featured here on this site a few months ago.

His updated Land Cruiser is now fitted with a brilliant snow-plough attachment controlled by LEGO’s Power Functions motors and the new SBrick that’s starting to make waves in the Lego Community. Egor’s classic Toyota has also got RC all-wheel drive and servo-motor controlled steering, a two-speed gearbox and live axle suspension. There’s lots more to see of the FJ45 on MOCpages – you can visit Egor’s page via the link above.

Powder Pusher

Lego Technic Unimog 8110

It might be the middle of summer here at the TLCB Towers (causing us many hot pant/mini skirt related distractions whilst driving), but our worldwide readership means that many of you will be reading this with your heating cranked up and a jumper on. If you’re one of our winter-bound readers then today’s post is just for you!

It’s the work of Brickshelf’s stefanbetulapendula, and he’s done a superb job fitting LEGO’s own 8110 Unimog set with all the equipment needed for a snowstorm.

Up front is a fantastically intricate looking snow blower, whilst a grit/salt hopper and dispenser has been mounted on the Unimog’s load-bed. Stefan has also retro-fitted Power Functions receivers and motors, making his Unimog fully remote-controlled too.

You can check out all the modifications via the complete gallery on Brickshelf by clicking the link above, and you can read TLCB’s expert review of the original LEGO Technic 8110 Unimog set by clicking here.
