    Challenging build, great to have something different, A bit of fiddling and replacing friction pins with non-friction pins and all pneumatic functions work fine. Did have issues with wheel drive skipping on the small bevel due to the load, worked ok off the floor.
    Thanks for the great model

    Great stuff!
    Thank you for an enjoyable build. As always, amazed by the ingenuity of people who can make a complete new model from an existing set.
    Thanks again.

    BrickByBrickTechnic, one thing to do, is using the parts list in the instructions booklet. This is ecause of every owner of this set, does have these parts at least.

    Thanks for the MOC. Just completed a highly enjoyable build with clear instructions.

    Some notes for the designer and anyone else building this MOC

    1) There are some parts missing as noted on this page. I did also find a few other parts missing during the end of the build however these were mainly cosmetic (had a different colour block to replace the missing block in the instructions) or could be replaced with a different part that comes with the original model to achieve the same structural effect.

    2) The main issue is that in my build at least, the actual lift of the main container did not work very well without manual help. There is a LOT of Lego being lifted and the stress on the pump is to great, causing gear and pump slippage and motor stress.

    3) Otherwise the pneumatic levers are fiddly to use and not secured very well, but that’s a minor quibble. 

    Else have fun everyone.

      Thanks for your comments! For the container thing, it should work fine with fully charged batteries. It did for me at least.

    So if I have the Arocs I can build this model without buying anything else?

      Yes, except some people are saying that 2 extra parts, 1x 12t tan bevel gear and 1x DBG 90-degree angle connector with axles are needed. I got them as spares in my set.
