Ultimate Bulldozer 17 PF motors, 5 SBricks

Recommended Posts

I was always inspired by the multi-functionality of backhoe's, and I always imagined ways to improve upon it and now I finally did.

In this MOC I challenged myself to make the most multi-functional vehicle I could, using all the motors and sbricks I had, naturally I ended up buying more motors XD
The final build includes 17 LEGO power functions motors (5XL motors, 6L motors and 6M motors), 4 LEGO power functions lights and 1 DIY LEGO laser!

It's powered by 4 LEGO PF battery boxes, controlled by 5 SBricks and operated by a 20 channel SBrick profile.

The drill/laser arm is operated by 5 channels

1 channel for rotating the arm (PF XL motor)
1 channel for tilting the arm out (PF L motor)
1 channel for extending the forearm (PF M motor)
1 channel for spinning the drill head (PF M motor)
1 channel for activating the DIY LEGO laser (TOPIC HERE)

 

The excavator arm is operated by 4 channels

the bulldozer scoop is operated by 2 chanels

1 channel for raising and lowering the scoop (PF M motor)
1 channel for tilting the scoop (PF M motor)

The crane is operated by 3 channels

What, no electromagnet??? (just kidding).   So many functions, you should get an award from S-Brick, seems very easy to control.  Well done, and good video to boot!

Wow! Love it! Not only a lot of functions, but smooth operation also! And it looks fantastic!

If you were going to ultimate mechanical complexity, I'd say you have achieved your goal sir.

Some things are impressive, others are plain crazy.  This is both.  Very slick and functional.  Although I can't see it becoming a new set for 2018.  Too many motors for that.  But well done.

whahaha, would be a bible of a building instruction and a price tag like a car not to mention a collaboration with SBrick...

i can imagine the price of probably 1000-1500 dolla bill$

That is one very complex machine.

I see you could use a challenge. I got one for ya: make some vehicle of your choice with at least 10 functions by using 6 motors. One for switching and 5 for the functions. Good luck!

This is amazing! A ton of motors! Was the video sped up a little? The linear actuators seemed to move very fast!

yes, most of it is sped up 150% just to keep the video interesting. It has so many functions that showing them all at normal speed would result in a long and boring video.

Ha nice meme for such an occasion. Roughly how many parts?

I have no way of knowing... or even guestimating that:tongue:

That's a nice challenge, I might just do that at some point :wink:. I received 2 sbrick-plus units and sensors just after this MOC was done so I'm building focused on utilizing those right now. I'm in the middle of making the diy LEGO PF electromagnet and I'm also renovating my house and backyard at the moment so there's not a lot of building time right now.

that electromagnet seems funny. How strong can it be? is 9v not a little too low? you probably haven't connected it yet but

You should enter it for the battlebots competition. :P What a beast..

I cant, it's way to big and it was build before the start of the competition

Actually... I finished it this afternoon and I'm pleasantly surprised with its strength:wink:. I will make a video of it shortly.
