This is my 2nd CMODEL from 42042. After BULLDOZER (see my other folder here), it is FORKLIFT this time.
It is built only from 42042 parts + 265cm string (not part of the 42042 LEGO set) - since the string is not an actual LEGO part, I am listing this as a C-model.
functions (motor operated): - drive (forward, backward) Front axle is driven - equipped with a differential - steering (rear axle) Ackermann steering geometry - lifting of the fork - tilting of the mast functions (manual): HOG steering (when gearbox is set to neutral for motorized steering)
MOC was designed completely computer-free way. Only when it was finished I made 3D model for renders and instructions. The instructions are LEGO quality step-by-step hi-res with all the necessary details, additional pictures, arrows etc. It contains also bill of material, stickers location (not altered from 42042 A-Model), battery replacement sequence, function explanation.
