Recommended Posts

IMG_1342.JPG

This is my first pneumatic MOC, and with no PF. It is based on GS-18.05 grader. I tried experimental placing of the cylinders to keep its look realistic.

Features & Functions:
  • Turnable control (moving down/up/left/right/incline)
  • Blade control (moving aside/down/up/turning around)
  • Dozer blade lifting/lowering
  • Ripper lifting/lowering
  • Frame turning
  • Front wheels turning
  • Front wheels incline

Nice model :thumbup:

How are the two long thin actuators attached?

With a bunch of nasty stickers and some more colour vomit it could easily be an official TLG model - good work there :classic:

Cheers,

Ole

Very nice. It would not surprise me if Lego would bring out such a model one of the next years. Do you intend to make instructions for this model?

If you mean cylinders – just with hoses.

There is instruction made, but it will be available later.

Very nicely done, you really captured all the features of a real grader. I love the way you mounted the vertical cylinders, simple and effective.

They're not "mounted" at all, just attached by the nozzles. Not a great way to do that, imho

Thanks all. It is really not the best way to mount cylinders, but they sit there really well, better than it may seem.

This is pretty darn good. May I suggest using the Lego Barb on the ends of the ripper claws. Looking forward to the instructions. Keep up the awesome work.

The well captured design, all the functions packed in this scale nominate for: the best grader MOC I have seen! :thumbup: :thumbup:

Very creative and effective usage of the new pneumatic cylinders! :classic:
