[TC9] Garden Tractor & Lawn Mower

Recommended Posts

Not shure about B model, but A should be garden tractor.

B could be simple lawn mover. I'm also thinking about some dragster.

Some teaser picture

Interesting! You have the fake engine mounted properly! :thumbup:

You might just want to put it back 1 or 2 studs. Take a look at this. The hood connects to the chassis on the bottom right of the photo.

Nice one. You still have planty of room to make it bigger with more functions. Or switch it to B-model, add some parts and make different A-model :sweet:

Fun. Can you scale it up at all to add some more functions?

What else besides:- steering- working motor- working blades- suspended seat?Yes, i wanted to make the mover system risable in transport position, but then tractor wont be so tiny and nice anymore :) most probably will run in some other problems.

That was the idea.

Almost impossible, because of steering mechanism. In additions to this, there will be trailer with risable bucket. Maybe there will be plough also. I have some space left.

Actually I do appreciate an entry that's not pushing the limits. If the B-model kicks butt you have a really nice entry.

(unfortunately the majority of the voters seems to think that bigger is better, but you never know)

Looking good already, I bet it will get better as it evolves (like your mini super car did).

How big is this model? Would your supercar have fit in TC9?

Tractor is finished allready yesterday. I just have to take good pictures.

Now i'm working on trailer.

Tractor is about 15x15x20 HxWxL. With trailer it will be some 35 L.

Supercar definetly should fit, but it is allready "harmed" by this contest.

Looking good, a very cute model. I especially like the chain driven blades. One question though: Doesn't the blade hit the wheel when turning?

Cute funny model. I like the chain in driveline, steering and suspended seat. Gear up the mower and use smaller blades... :)

Nice midel, is it possible to gear up the mower and fake engine?

Yes, it is. Good that You reminded me, i was planning to do this

I don't know, if smaller blades will look better, because then that blade mechanism will be too narrow. Maybe i'll manage to move blade mechanism by one stud back.

Yes, there are some conflict between blades and front wheels when turning.

Thank You! Good, that somebody understands.

Some more gear-up.

There is one more possibility for gear up, but then theres again possibility for conflict between blades and front wheels when steering. Now that is also solved.

Wouldn't it be nicer to use a propeller part of an airplane?

Or the fan part used on the 8265 loader

First idea was to use propellers, and as a B model create something flying.

But theres one problem - there fit only half stud. One full stud is too much, then tractor stands on those blades.

I love it! The trailer is a really good addition. I guess in winter you really could plough snow and trim your lawn simoultaneously :-P Really nice entry!

I am still waiting for a kick (in the head) for me to start :-(

This one grows nicely. It has great amount of functions in such a small shape. And appearance is also very nice and authentic. When you manage to nail B-model, it'll be one of the favourites for me(well, it also depends on entries, which we hasn't seen yet, contest is just on the begining). :thumbup:

You can plough away trimmed grass :classic:

In fact, blade mechanism and plough is easy to detach. Yes, there stays some "ugly" connector ends.

Plough is connected to 2 crossaxle ends, blade mechanism to 4 pegs, from which 2 stays at chassis. This last i could try to rebuild so, that nothing stays.

By the rules i just have to leave everything connected.

I'll take some pictures in the evening.

Any chance on instructions?

Nice little thing to maybe build one day or in-between projects.
