Week TechVideo, 2009 #15 - Nico's Flatbed Car Carrier

When I saw the B-model proposed for the Hauler (8264), for the first time, found it a very cute alternative of the main model and a nice usage for the new TECHNIC Panel Plates (64782).
The Linear Actuator was off course a natural solution to lower and raise the truck flatbed.

What you may don't know, is about a similar model made some months earlier by Nico with a radically different and ingenious gear solution applied to move the flatbet, when the TECHNIC Linear Actuator, was not yet available.
Apart from manual steering, Nico's model also features a motorized winch, that helps damaged vehicles to move up.
See it in action, on the video below!

Find more pictures from this model, at Nico's BS folder.
