About this creation
This is a Volvo ABG5820 Paving Machine, totally made out of the LEGO set 8275. First I show you some nice pictures:



Front View








Rear View








Side View






This model has almost all the functions which a normal ABG5820 also has. Only a chain for transportating the asphalt lacks. The most important function is, ofcourse, the driving system:

On this photo you see the caterpillar and the motor (between the caterpillar and the IR-receiver) which drives the caterpillar. Each caterpillar (left and right) is driven by one large PF-motor. The gear-train between the motor isn't very large:

A third motor, a Medium PF, is used for tilting the container at the front, to make sure that there is no asphalt left in there:


The speed of the motor is been geared down by a worm and two white slipping gears are used to prevent the system of rattling.

The last motor-driven system can be found at the rear of the paving machine. There is a motor used to make the surface which is being paved larger. This was the hardest part because normally you do this with a toothed bar, but oops.. there are no toothed bars in this set, so I had to make an other system. I managed and this is the result:



Because the Paving Machine has to be transportated, the roof can be fold in. I tried to replicate that as good as possible and I came to this:



To fold in the roof you have to pull the two axles out and push the roof down and to the front of the car.

Underneath the grille, the two IR-receivers are assembled. You can also see a part of the V8 diesel motor.





On these photo's you see where all the PF-stuff is placed:



At the end I'll show some nice details:


The control panel








A stepladder to climb into the cabine.

Quoting Darcy Guerin Hanlon awesome but can it pave? this is the first on MOCpages that i've seen
no, it can't because then you need heating elements and all the LEGO would melt away.

Hi Techno Moves, Very original! This is the way to learn how machines work! Especially the "container tilting unit" and the "paving area extender" are very interesting. I am looking forward to see it in operation (in your movie).

Cool creation. It match with your other creations, but this one has a function too! You've build a nice black-yellow pipe on it.
