Hello Fyredog,

I already have the picts from Brickshelf, but I'm not that great of a builder yet.
The only moc I've build is a tractor unit based on the cranetruck 8868.

I like it, but it's very simple.
I have to make a trailerplate yet, but I don't have the parts yet.
I'll be waiting for the instructions.
Does your version work better than the original?

Greetings

Nice Tractor!

I have the TLG 8043 I built it and really loved what they did.  BUT  I must say that mine still works better and has no problems lifting the bigger & Heavier main boom with 2 linear actuators and the M-Motor.  Mine also travels faster, and all functions can work simultaneously. If you have not seen the video click .

Thanks again for all the kind words
In search of the perfect technic kit

Hello Fyredog,

I have seen the video and I like the way it moves.
I also would like to know the extra parts you have used to build your version.
I am going to buy the set next year, but to build it like yours, I will have to buy the extra parts used, because I don't own much extra parts.
I only have complete sets, and the ones I have, I don't want to take apart to build the version you made.
It has two rechargeble batterypacs and extra motors I don't have.
I also plan to buy 8265 and make it RC with the instructions I found at Brickshelf.

Hope to here from you soon.

Hello Fyredog,

It has been some time since I've heard from you.
I would love to see and download the instructions for the excavator when you have them.
Can you also make a list of the extra parts I will have to use to build it?
And please give the partsnumbers used by TLC, because looking them up at Peeron to see in what sets they are takes ages.

Thanks so far and keep the good work up.
