8109 Flatbed Truck - Video

Efferman has published a review and a short video from the new set 8109 Flatbed Truck, at EuroBricks.

As we get to now more and more details about this set, it becomes more interesting than we imagined at the first sight.

Like Anio wrote "The way the towing fork extends is absolutely EPIC".

The fork has an amazing design with a double motionaction. As it extends out underneath the flatbed, there is a lever actuating a set of gears that rotates the fork.

Finally, the white rubber band pulls the lever back as it retracts, to rotate the fork into the original position.

Read the full details and mechanisms at EB.
Thanks for the review Efferman!

This looks like a good set, with 2 exiting functions...

The fork is indeed a little wonder!

Maybe Santa would be so nice to get me one....

Personally... I'd prefer more 'interesting' mechanisms in Technic sets, than outright motors/size.
I look back at all my favourite sets, over time, and each one has some mechanism/linkage that makes me smile with amazement and wonder, how it works together so well - usually they are very unique too...
