Forklift Truck

The forklift truck is equipped with drive, steering, lifted and tilted fork. Powered by PFS and including building instructions.


The forklift truck is powered by the Power Functions System. The wheels are driven by a XL motor with a 12/24 reduction. The steering is operated on the rear by a M with a clutch system. To raise the fork, I use the same construction as on 8416 forklift truck with a 2-section telescopic boom and string. At least, a M operates the tilting of fork with a lever and connecting rod system. This MOC includes PFS battery, 4 motors and 2 IR receivers, and it is smaller than the 8436. This is the reason why I created the building instructions, to enable you to re-built it. For the parts, it is mainly composed of 8275, 8292 (yellow part) and other parts such as wheels and racks.

I have created the building instructions. You can watch them by browsing my webiste or

    Hello Nico,
    I’m Caleb from Alabama in the U.S.A.
    I am not the type of guy to build regular Lego sets, but much less to be building stuff like that! Plus, I don’t have ANY of those pieces. So I was wondering if there is any way I could buy one from you? If you could, would you be able to send me a price (pieces + labor to build it,and any thing else included) to my email? If not, please let me know. (There is no limit to the price)

    Thank you and all of my best regards!
