Modified 8479 Garbage truck with side-loading mechanism and container system.
About this creation
A new modification: 8479 Garbage Truck controled by CodePilot
WARNING: Don't use this program for the normal truck!!! It could crash it.
Attention: You have to reconstruct the clutch sytem and the reduction for the front grabber. Building instructions avaible in few days.
Normally I think modded sets are a bit weak, but not this! The side loading mechanism and bin are great.... but why didn't LEGO do a roll-on/off container in the first place?! I might have to update my Barcode truck now! Definitely better than the original, I always thought the front grabby arms were a bit silly. I didn't know there was an expansion pack; is it LEGO Education (i.e for schools)?
