I am back in business :D

I took a while to complete this model (I didn't had time, pieces etc) but it seems that I'll be posting new models more often now.

First, the real machine:

And my model:

Front wheels are steered by bevel gear located on the back of the grader:

Blade and ripper are operated by pneumatic cylinders fed from small pump:

This reminds me of my old tonka trucks from my youth, especially with the mechanical functions. Great job. I love that its minifig scale too, it looks like it could be an official set.

Great Moc. Just the machines I like. Large mining equipment. Perfect scale and nice details.
