LIKES

This MOC was designed to participate in the Eurobricks TC10 competition.

The video shows the functionality, it has been designed to be playable by a kid, so you can really dump and eject paper for example.

Since the model is done in LDD, the pneumatics cylinders have been replaced by brick assemblies and the tubing is not included. Check the pictures on Bricksafe to see the piping.
For the ejector, it may be required to play with the chain position and angle of the gear to get the right extension.

Simplified the colors to white cab and red body. All that's missing from the MOC is a function for raising the body for dumping (i imagine that would really complicate the build)

Container arms elevated. This is a really smooth function, but I need to test it with an actual container mounted.

The arms are nicely designed to fit both over the cab and perform the function of dumping into the top door. Note my changes to routing of hoses for tidier look.

Nice curvature of the tailgate. I removed the upper lights in favor of filling in some of the gaps. I also filled the gaps on the top and sides.

Tailgate raised, again a smooth function.

View inside with the ejector in stowed position. Was difficult to route the hoses after having built the main structure first. Whilst fiddly to achieve, the ejector does work very well.

Another view of the arms being raised. I need to build the trash container that is featured in some of the photos (not in lxf)

View into the cab (which tilts forward to reveal the engine block)

Three of the functions use the newer pneumatic switches. The switches are nicely placed and there is plenty of room to organize the hoses. I also like how the battery box is built in.

The other two functions use the old style switches, fortunately I have these from my childhood 8851 excavator set.

Not sure about my 'white' bumper, this was mainly because I only had the parts in this color (just realized I missed a beam there!)

View of drivers console. Nice added details :-)
