[MOC] Compact Log Loader

Recommended Posts

Hi Eurobricks!

I would like to share my newest creation with you: a log loader. It is roughly based on a Skogger loader.

It has four RC functions:

   - propulsion

   - steering

   - boom

   - grabber

A XL motor is geared down 3:1 to give the four wheels a descent speed and power:

I used a servo motor for the steering:

The boom is controlled by a M motor via 2 mini LAs.

The grabber is also controlled by a M motor and uses a worm gear on two 16t gears.

Because the body is only 8 studs at its widest, I had to use a custom 9V battery.

Impressive how many motors you've crammed into here! Do you ever have issues with the IR signal with both your receivers facing inward like that?

I suppose it is some autonomous version, because I can not see drivers cab. Otherwise it is interesting build :thumbup:

This is a Skogger, which was used as inspiration.
It does have a cab:

Looks more like some gigantic loader then, if we consider cabin scale to wheels.

Motor pacinkg is impressive, also that everything is remotely controlled, including grabber.

No, I just have to keep the remote above or behind the vehicle.

Sorry for late response, but it is more "natural" to have tractor tires on forest equipment than tire with street pattern.
