(Code: MP124)

These instructions describe a modestly sized model which utilises the parts (plus some in addition) and infra red remote control from the Action Control Set 9526 (no longer on sale). The model is built to a nominal scale of 17:1 the scale being determined by the size of the tyres. Because of the limitations of Meccano dimensions, the scale of the other parts of the model is 15:1. 

Instructions cover the front section; upper part (cab); the rear section; the bucket; the bucket lift and tilt mechanism and the wheels. The12 page leaflet is illustrated with eight colour photographs, a dimensioned drawing of the prototype and parts list.
