As soon as I opened the awesome 7685 City Dozer I got the idea for one of these. Unfortunately, I had no idea what they were called, or what they were for. Thank God for Google.

What you have here is your Pad-foot Waste Compactor. The pad-foot refers to the two round halves of metal or hard rubber "feet" which connect together over the more conventional drum.

Eventually I plan to make a trash scene dio with it, but prolly not knowing me. More photos on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/74424867@N00/

Should get you ready for this set:http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemPic.asp?S=7746-1, which oddly enough, I found about 1 hr after posting mine of Flickr. Laughing

Nice work, gold_2. You've successfully recaptured a nightmarish experience I had in high school when driving my little Nissan pick-up into the dump to dispose of some things. About half a dozen of these vehicles converged on me for what I was sure was to be my ultimate destruction. Fortunately, I escaped with my truck and my life in tact.

^ As was my plan, to force you to relive your worst nightmare. Not sure why I didn't just send it to you and you alone. Laughing

Well, it's a nice MOC. It makes sense that you'd want to expand the audience a bit. Wink

Was is a King Cab? That little truck was a joy to drive, but it wouldn't have stood a chance against a snow plow.

Awesome MOC to get back on topic. Those strike me a very Bionicle type pieces in the drum area.

Draykov your truck must have looked like an uncompacted trash to them... Wink

Nice design! Very Happy I'll know the source if I see it in a new City set...
