Crane truck

This is a lego technic crane truck made by kristl, a member of the eurobricks forum.

As he says the cabin is the same as the one from the lego technic set 8258, but modified to house the battery box.

The two power functions motors are in the front. There is a medium motor and a xl motor.

Another photo of the crane truck:

He says: “The crane is pneumatic, with the air coming from the onboard compressor. For crane operation the operater uses two pneumatic valves, a gearbox and a power switch. The valves obviously control the two rams inside the boom. The gerabox has two functions. One function is for the crane rotation, where, depending on the power switch position, the crane rotates left or right. The second function is the compressor which powers all the remaining functions of the truck.
