I plan to add a couple more sprockets once my BrickLink order comes in.

Cool and thanks! :thumbup:  Really simple and effective tho i wonder how well does it tackle obstacles compared to the wheels?
More sprockets are probably going to make it so that it will have better maneuverability in rough terrain and snow.
Ill order some parts on bricklink today and build some too:)

@ skylinedan:  Fernando Correia wrote the TechnicBRICKS article over two years ago (on January 12, 2010).  The 57518 Technic Treads have appeared since 2007, and one can select parts from older (~2007-2009) Technic sets to get the older type treads (per this Bricklink webpage).  One can alternate old/new/old/new Technic Tread pieces to get around the problem of tight bends:

Thanks! Yes, that is the article I was looking for. I will have to contact some Bricklink sellers to see if they know where their parts are from.. These new ones stink!Posted Image

Hi,

to use a large cylinder was a good idea. The range is much better.
It looks great!
Can you give some instructions, please :sweet:

I'm glad someone had the courage to come out and say this. It's a pretty hard task scrolling down to see the same picture 4 times over.

I was just thinking about doing that today.  :)

Looks good. IR controlled too.  Can it be removed or is it "built in" ?

You can remove the crane as the original crane. The RC functions for driving, steering front pto and rear pto and the compressor are built in

@ dr_spock I will use little branches with a diameter between 1 and 3 cm

@ timr I can make some fotos and post them together with the video^^

Hi There,

i just took an hour of fooling around a bit with my unimog.
I might have a way to putt an XL-Motor into the mainframe without changing to overall design.
First i replaced the two rear 13-hole liftarms on the upper frame with two 9-hole lift arms - please disregard the dark bluish gray, as they just came to my hand first.
This leaves fairly enough room for the xl-motor.
When looking from the rear of the unimog towards to gearbox you can spot the engine driveshaft below the steering shaft. The axle sticks out 1 length unit so i attached a joint an a 3 stud-axle with a large 24 tooth gear.
The motor also has a 3 stud axle with a small gear attached.
The motor is lowered into the frame - leaving the pinholes of the motor exactly on the level of the upper mainframe.

Well, the mod is far from begin finally, but a first test showed it works, and the 4x4 feature of the unimog remains untouched, since the engineshaft is connected to the main differential.
However, i'm planning on gearing down to torque within the portal axles. Another aspect that needs to be change is that the platform needs to be raised by on one unit as the motor sticks out of the frame to far.
Hi

I've just motorised my 'Mog using the method you described, well, almost.

I disconnected the lower mount of the rear shocks and removed from the chassis the 2 black pins and the grey axle they were holding.

I fitted connector to the drive shaft and a 3 length axle into that. Then 2 friction pins with cross into 2 (2905) 'coat hanger' pieces  (sorry, don't know the proper name) and a black friction pin into the motor. Then just huffed, puffed & swore until the motor was in and hooked up to the engine drive shaft.

Works a treat. Steering next....

I know there are more elaborate & elegant solutions but I've taken a few months building my 'Mog by mouth and taking it apart would be harder than ever.
A BIG MOUTH PUT TO GOOD USE

@ Brewc:  :classic:   pcility has many photos of his fully-motorized 8110 Lego Technic Unimog U400 set on his Brickshelf gallery.  He posted a set of three YouTube videos about the conversion; I can only display two of them here.

Great thread  :classic: I have just read all 69 pages :)

I sold off ALL my Lego last year and I am now building my collection back up, this is the first new Technic I have purchased and boy am I glad I did :)  I also have 8068 and 8069 which I have not built as yet, just using the pieces from these two sets what would be some good mods? I am thinking of adding a trailer and maybe a bucket for the front of it.

Nice trailer!  Often trailers like that have a tilting bed.  Do you think you could add a tilting feature?

No, it would be too wide this way... I will add some ramps which can swivel.
