Hi to all, 

It was a lot of time to share something here, so TC10 contest is good opportunity. My entry is a log skidder with 4 pneumatic and 3 manual functions;

- In-cabin steering via steering wheel

- 4wd drive and fake 4 cylinder engine

- Pendular front suspension

- Front blade up/down with 1x5 piston

- Boom section 1 up/down  with 2 old pistons

- Boom section 2 up/down with  2x11 piston

-Claw open/close with 1x5 piston (also rotates with small turntable)

I dont have a video yet but i will add later because i will not have time in workdays. I hope I can do next week. Comments and critics are welcome and good luck to all contestants :)

I agree wit jono.rocky. This looks like a set to me. Not to cocky, not to simple.In range around 50 to 70 €. I like it! Good integration of the pump as an exhaust. Good luck.

That is so cool. Not too much, just right. If this would be an official set, I would buy it. I really like this. Great appearance, great design. Great for playing. Perfect.

Thanks to all for nice comments. Color scheme a tribute to old pneumatic sets 8462 and 8042

I think with 5 pneumatic pistons it could be more expensive 50-70 € :sceptic:

I guess you are right, I really wasn't calculating - I just spill it out :-) Those crawler tires wouldn't make it any cheaper either. Nontheless - it is still a great model and it would sell very well IMHO.

I agree with the above. I love the colour scheme, nice to see some blue. Excellent work and good luck.

I think everyone here guess how its work but rules says video is mandatory so i made simple (and shakey) video. I think presentation isn't my thing.

As I already said, I find this one really cool looking. The only thing I see missing is HOG steering. It seems a bit awkward to reach the steering wheel.
