[WIP] CLAAS Xerion 4000 Saddletrac (FINISHED! Slurry construction soon)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

There is already a beautiful saddletrac MOC which was built by @efferman but I wanted to build a saddletrac using only pieces from the 42054 set. Here are the function:

-3 steering modes

-2 PTOs (1 top, 1 back & front)

-attachments, currently undecided

Here's what I've got so far:

I did the front first specifically so I could ration DBG pieces.

If you have any attachment ideas or constructive criticism, please leave a comment. Thanks!

How much of the inside is the same as the regular 42054? I never found time to try making one, I wanted to make without the same inside as the regular model. i envy your c model skills. Are any extra pieces used yet?

Where is the hog? Is it the grey gear? If so, move it or you will have no steering with a trailer attached!

Just the 3 steering modes. All else was changed because the BB needed to be lowered.

Nope.

Yeah, getting to figure that out.

Nice model of Noirex 0005 SAALC!

I didn't understand your comment. What is a Noirex 0005 SAALC? Couldn't find a picture.

Look at your model. Then look at Lime panels above front axle. Then look at the sticker on it.

Here's a quick picture demonstrating BB replacement. Note: It's really easy.

The cab is attached by 2 pins and is super securely fastened to the chassis.

You mean steering knob? Yes, I will figure out a solution for that :thumbup:

Yes, this is causing me a problem. My wip xerion has fake engine and 4wd but steering is causing me a headachse. So I have finished Unimog chassis...

The place to hook up the trailer seems to be behind my steering knob location. Can you confirm this based on the picture?

UPDATE TIME!

The actual tractor is done. Anyone have attachment ideas?

If you're wondering about the HOG steering knob, it seems like the trailer hitch is behind the HOG wheel. Check the above post and confirm this if you can.

Here's the rear:

The black thing is supposed to be the 3 point hitch... how does it look?

IMG_5926

Raised.

Now, the big question: is the trailer hitch point where the finger is pointing?

Thanks for your answer!

@BrickbyBrickTechnic Slurry slurry slurry slurry slurry!!!!

 

Oooohhh... looks good!

Perhaps something like this

Also an interesting idea!

From just the leftover pieces from the set, I'm building a lawn mower attachment. I will build the (cool) attachment (one of your suggestions) from other pieces.

There were only about 700 pieces left after finishing the tractor part.

I am loving this so far, i wish i had had the inspiration to build one. I just think, even replicating the real deal, the 3 point hitch is not good. it will not be easy to attach a crane, lawn mower, or get in the way of the trailer.

I don"t like the rear light angle, it looks to bend pieces.

Thank you! I do plan to restore the original PTO setup since the attachment I'm doing with the leftover pieces will have to attach there to ensure good weight distribution.

The rear lights don't bend pieces (they're attached to "hinges") but I'm looking into a better solution.

I was saying it looked like they were, I prefer original attachment.
