Climbing Truck

The Climbing Truck is a rescue vehicle in mountains or on any rugged terrain with many obstacles, it has 12-wheel drive. In addition to the independent suspension with shock absorber on all wheels, in its chassis there are four transverse articulations that allow the vehicle to overcome obstacles with 90 degrees of inclination up to 20 cm (7.89 inches) in height. Two electric motors are responsible for driving it and a third drives the steering, the vehicle is guided by remote control. It is possible to manually open the doors, vascularize the loading platform and operate the crane vertically and longitudinally. The construction of this project was based on an old toy I had as a child, but it was very static. I believe it would make a great LEGO kit, as it is a very versatile toy and presents a challenging stage of assembly (something appreciated by Technic fans). With minor changes, it can be controlled by cell phone through the LEGO Technic CONTROL + app and the number of parts is close to the largest Technic kit currently sold.
