Cement Mixer

This is a MOC inspired by the City set 60018. There are too few cement mixers in Lego, and no (official) one in Lego Technic! This one is unusual as it is a "midi" scale one. The scale was imposed by the size of the drum, reused from the 60018 set.

It is small, but packed with functionalities! First it features a steering with a HOG, as well as openable doors. The slide in the rear can be controled via the 12t gear under the drum. The drum of course moves! It can be steered from the 12t gear on the side of the cabin. It can also be moved while driving the truck! This mecanism can be switch on and off via the switch on the left side.

This is verison 3.0 of this MOC. Pictures show previous versions of this model, which were largely improved thanks to the feedback from people at TechLUG (follow the link to TechLUG for the hystory of discussions, in French).
