It's my first Technic and/or Model Team model shown here.
I proudly present my model of Liebherr L 580 wheel loader
The real machnie:
Why I took this loader? Some time ago I was browsing the net and I found this picture:
And I thought that it will be great to have a tipper truck (my Iveco Eurotrakker, which wasn't shown here) and a Liebherr wheel loader (colour scheme of Liebherr loaders is just beautiful)
Up and down...
Fully detailed cab interior:
And here you can see how the interior of real machine looks:
Pictures of all mechanisms builded inside, with proper connections to the loader chassis (except the XL motor which is used for raising the arm)
This loader is driven by PF XL motor, with 3:1 reduction.
The steering is achieved by a 8 studs long gear rack placed on the right side of the loader, and it's driven by a PF Medium motor through a worm gear.
The arm is raised and lowered by a XL motor:
PF M Motor placed in front half of the loader is used for tilting the bucket:
All these motors and lights are powered from rechargeable battery:
Iveco Eurotrakker and Liebherr L 580 (yes, I've built this loader mainly for taking these pictures...)
And a movie showing how it works
