Some Photos:








Side-Loading System


The new exterior mirror


Rear wheels of the container


The container Roll on/ Roll off system (for instructions to build it on your own 8479, send me a comment)


You need only four "1x3 liftarms" to modify it




Gear system: Put the friction clutch one stud to the left and make one more 1:3 reduction on to right, to set in the hook liftarm.


Mechanism





Put it in the second motorslot on the right side of the vehicle.


Finish!


The garbage can...


... again


A lot of space for rubbish

IN ACTION!!!

Normally I think modded sets are a bit weak, but not this! The side loading mechanism and bin are great.... but why didn't LEGO do a roll-on/off container in the first place?! I might have to update my Barcode truck now! Definitely better than the original, I always thought the front grabby arms were a bit silly. I didn't know there was an expansion pack; is it LEGO Education (i.e for schools)?
