Made by UGEARS, rubber band powered.
Truck & Additions
The four-cylinder engine is propelled by the crankshaft that draws its power from a fully-functional drive shaft turned by a rubber band engine via a system of gears.
There are 3 modes - forward, backward and idle, which can be activated using the gear change lever on the side.
If you wish to observe the trucks operational mode, switch on the engine to idle mode to check out the four pistons moving under the folding bonnet.
You can also peek via the cabin door – you will notice the fully functioning steering wheel connected via a steering column to the front wheels suspension.
The rubber band engine winds up with a lever mechanism on top of the cabin and a working accelerator pedal heightens the realistic aspect of this construction kit.
The “open structure” is chosen purposely so the mechanics of the advanced design can be fully appreciated.
No need to use glue or special tools as the parts are self-assembled – just follow instructions and connect the parts accordingly.
Truck only, additions sold separately.

TRUCK ADDITIONS SET OF 3, Includes fire engine, tanker (carries cans of pop) & trailer Chassis.
Just like the truck base, the kits are assembled simply by pressing out the precision cut plywood pieces from the kit and attaching them together piece by piece. No glue is required to build these interesting, strong truck accessories with exceptional mechanical movement.
Carry a heavy load behind your truck in the extra trailer chassis.
Transform the vehicle into a fire engine with the extendable rescue ladder crane.
Approximate time of assembly: 1-2 hours
The set of Additions for Truck includes:
• The Tanker with a unique opening mechanism, which carries 330ml cans of pop. The tanker opens by twisting the cap on the tanker and closes the same way.
• Extendable 3-section Fire Ladder on slewing platform. Has the length of 70cm when extended. The Fire Ladder has several controls. Press the lever and lift up the ladder. Turn the platform to the right or to the left. Fix the selected position with a special ratchet. All three sections of the ladders extend. Ascend the ladder and you’ll get a real crane with hook at its end. There is even a little ladder to help Firemen to climb on the truck. Like in a real Fire Truck it is mounted on back.
• Truck’s Trailer: the Chassis with wheels on which the Truck’s “bed” is set.
The Trailer Сhassis has very realistic springs which are swinging during driving. There is a special rack under the drawbar, so that the model could stand independently.
Assemble without glue like all the UGEARS models.
