Wheel Dozer

Recommended Posts

Hello Eurobrick !
Short introduction to my latest MOC : a wheel dozer.
A wheel dozer is basically a big blade to push material mounted on 4 (or more) wheels mostly used in mining industry. It is a quite simple vehicle I suppose this is one reasin it is not built a lot in Technic.
By the way, I’m a bit late to post this, it is already more than a week old.

What’s inside?
Propulsion is made through a PF-XL motor placed at the rear end of the truck with a fake L6 engine. The vehicle is 4 wheel drive with a differential on both front and rear axle, plus the rear axle is pendular.

A servomotor is used for steering in a simplified technic than the one used on set 42030 (Volvo L350).

The front blade is also operated by a single Servomotor which accomodate the upper-lower positionning easily, and intermediate position can also be reached thanks to the use of the BuWizz controller.

It looks that you were inspired with this.

Now I have read other info about YOC (this should be Your Own Creation :laugh: ) and first image you posted there is really impressive

I don´t like the BuWizz but it is still a very nice MOC, nice and simple steering.

I still have a mitigated opinion about the BuWIzz. I like it to make smal MOC with limited space and 3 or 4 basic function only. The last update allowing to personalize the control is a great addition but a possibility to create a complex function is still missing compared to a SBrick.
