Here is another excellent Lego Technic Road Grader built for the 9th SeTechnic Challenge, this time by Techymind.  It sports a "Eurovia/Hubbard color (White with blue and red line)".  On his Brickshelf gallery, Techymind posted 12 BIG images and a .l3b animation file.  His  YouTube video shows all of its functions:

Resized image. Please show some consideration for people on slower or more expensive connections. Please?

Well, I'm quite surprised to see my Model here  :classic:
Thank you.

I don't understand why the pictures are so BIG. I resized them.... Hmm I will upload new picture with decent size  :sweet:

Maybe should I add come comment for this review :

It has basically 9 functions :
  • Steering with HOG on top of the cab : front wheel and central articulation are syncronized
    • Front steering (HOG / 20t / 12t / 8t)
    • Central articulation steering (HOG / 8t / 40t)
  • Front pendular steering
  • Rear independant left and right pendular suspension
  • Fake L4 engine powered via pendular suspension and a central differential
  • Main blade lowering/raising (worm / 8t)
  • Main blade left/right sliding (worm / 8t)
  • Main blade rotated (worm / turntable)
  • Rear ripper lowering/raising (friction)
This Road grader has exactly 600 parts (it was the maximum accepted in this challenge)

I will probably update the model with new and updated functions and with some design parts I could not put because of part limitation.

I'm glad I post for the first time here  :classic:
