Some new images from the 2H11 Technic sets, were uploaded at flickr.
They are just individual and distorted shots from the same catalog recently seen, but with a better resolution thus revealing a few more details (despite the flash spots). Click on the images to see them enlarged!
8071 - Bucket Truck
It seems to have four functions:
- Front wheel steering
- Lower/raise front outriggers
- Rotate air lift
- Lower/raise airlift
Some more should exist and then this model should not include any switch box function, but individual knobs instead.
8109 - Flatbed Truck
Now we can clearly see a two-way switch box, which seems to allow for selecting among two main functions:
- Lower/raise (tilt) the flatbed
- Extend/retract a tow fork, under the flatbed
And the flatbed winch is now more than evident. Although still not sure if it is a motorized function (not matching the two-way switch box observation), or just manually operated.
Also still not clear where the PF battery box fits inside this model.
8110 - Unimog U400
Not much to add to the previous analysis, except an increased confidence on the hypothesis already advanced.
- Pneumatic crane with three DOF, and visible levers for the three pneumatic valves on the Unimog rear ride
- The rear outriggers are now clearly visible from an image at the PF orange band on the right
- 4-way function switch (two levers), on top of the battery box, but only one function clearly indicated in the diagrams (the head winch).
The other three probable motorized functions previously advanced, are still good candidates, despite not yet possible to confirm: motorized pump (technically not the same as a compressor); outriggers regulation and crane rotation.
Notice that all the pneumatic tubing seems to be still lacking in this mock-up, which is also not a surprise, considering other preliminary images that we have seen in the past from different models.
Sorry if the terms used are technically the most correct ones, but as you might have already understood... I'm not a native English speaker, not even close...
