MOC: Technic Logging Trailer MK3

Post by Paul B on Sun 11 Jan 2015, 11:47 pm


Over the past few years I have built a few different trailers, these have varied between general purpose trailers, heavy equipment carrying trailers and logging trailers. Growing up I have always had a fascination with heavy equipment like this, many of my early LEGO Technic builds were of the various machinery I saw in use around me.

After purchasing LEGO Technic set 42030 (Volvo Wheel Loader) late last year I designed and built a few different attachments, the details of these can be found on my blog. Late last year I designed and built an equipment trailer to carry these attachments, after a week I decided that I was not 100% happy with this so over the weekend I pulled this down and built a new / better trailer. This I am calling "Technic Logging Trailer MK3" as it is the third serious attempt I have made at building a logging trailer since I became and AFOL, I think it is my best so far.

This trailer is designed for carrying logs out of forestry operation areas. It has a front set of wheels which lift and allow it to be connected to the back of the Volvo loader (I am planning on building another truck to tow this), it has a capacity of about 20 logs. I also made some modifications to my grabbing claw to now have forks which are used for loading and unloading this trailer. This trailer, my Volvo wheel loader and various attachments will be the main feature of my display at our Brixhibitions across the state this year.

Photos and a video of this in use can be seen here:

MOC: Technic Logging Trailer - MK3
Update - 14/01/2014:
Following some feedback and advice after publishing this online earlier this week I have now made a number of changes to this:
- Changed from single rear axle to now have both front and rear axles.
- Removal of front jockey wheel set up.
- Added a support leg for the draw bar.
- Changed towing hitch.
- Extended tray and filled in gaps.
- Added extra lights to top of rear forks.
- Changed some colours of parts to be more consistent.
