Amazing build! 23 motors.... Wow. This makes the Claas tires look tiny! Which motor control what functions on this monster?

Thanks Leonardo. The Claas Tires came just in time from the TLG Heaven :wink:. They are amazingly sturdy, and are not reinforced inside, like i had to with the powerpuller tires on my Ropa Tiger.

Are you asking for a fully  run through of the functions?.

This vehicle looks crazy functional. A video would be nice.

Is the yellow block in the back a counterweight for the conveyor belt?

Well it has a function or 20...:wink:.. I am planning a video, but have been very busy harvesting potatoes and mais, the last few months.

You are right, it is the counterweight, on the original it is the diesel tank, on the model a battery box.

I think it is going to be a very long.... and boring post.... i have just asked my sweet wife who is a photographer, if she wants to help with the video i near future. I think a video is more fun to watch, and explains more than words. :grin:

That's incredible, I can't believe how complex you managed to cram that many functions into one controller. I'd love to see how it moves, well done!!!

Amazing! I still remember your previous Ropa engine. It was one of the first MOCs I saw after coming out of my dark ages and I was flabbergasted by what one can do with Lego Technic. Seeing your new creation, I am again flabbergasted and very much looking forward to the video. This should absolutely appear in the EB Hall of Fame!

I usallu just don't like big creations, but this is amazing. In the pictures it also somehow doesn't look large, I just now by tires, that it is very big.
