This truck model is powered by an inline 6 cylinder engine with a displacement of 13.0 L with horsepower range from 425 up to 505. The truck’s modeled engine together with the electronic components, both front and rear axles, steps, air cylinders, battery box and fuel tanks are mounted to its realistic ladder frame.
This truck features:
- solid front axle suspension
- tandem bogie rear axle suspension
- differentials for smooth cornering
- servo motor steering
- fully functional fifth wheel
- openable hood
- modeled engine
- openable doors
- detailed cabin interior
- realistic ladder frame
This modeled engine is given its realistic looks with as much as about 120 parts and details such as: engine oil dipstick, fan, fan belt, pulleys, hoses, oil filters including by-pass oil filter and a turbo. Together with much more engine bay details which are added the looks are phenomenal. These include break fluid reservoir, windshield washer container, internal air cleaner system and steering shaft.
Even more details that add to this scale model’s realism are to be found in the drivers cabin. By opening the cabin doors one can can take a closer look. For the driver's comfort the interior has gauges, switches and comfortable seats. Other details are a angled dash and gauge panel, a steering wheel and a gear shift.
What is particularly new is the double rear axle setup and how it is powered. The LEGO® Power Functions® XL motor is efficiently powering both rear axles without any gear reductions. This new axle setup, which is based around the concept of the walking beam suspension, guarantee easy axle and wheel travel.
Even though this truck initially is designed to go with “Trailer Tr11” it can be combined with most of our other trailer products. If not sure please don't hesitate to contact us!
