MOC/MOD material handler 42053/42144

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I found the latest iteration of the material handler a bit flimsy, and esthetically not so nice and I also didn't like the wheel base. So I decided to mod the 42053 material handler to beast mode. It has the latest control+ XL-motor with the dumb battery box and one small pump. The cabin of the 42053 is reused without modifications, the grabber is reused with a bit of modifications, and the design of the aft section is also reused. For the booms I used the 42144 design. The crane uses ballast in the track section and in de crane body.

The ballast are small metal bearing balls in the LBG-boxes, which are easily removable

It's an 'electrical' excavator with external power supply, the cable is reeled in and out together with the movement of the tracks

In total there are 6 cylinders and 1 small pump (should have been 2, but there was no room in the body)

I hope you like it, due to time restraints I couldn't eleborate the design more, I will make I claw grabber in due time
