I'm shocked how bare bone it looks.*huh*

Am i right, that the worm gear drives an 8(?)T gear. So all the weight of that shovel apparatus has to be lifted by a single gear, completely unsupported?

So, as in all small Lego technic sets? Some current ones;

30433 Volvo wheel loader; worm+8T

30655 Forklift with pallet; worm+8T

42144 Material handler; worm+20T (cabin)

Hmm this pales in comparison to the 42148... At least a rear ripper could have been attached. Also the red gears stick out too much for my taste.

This looks pretty poor compared to recent 10 euro sets, which paradoxically used to be the stronger sets of Technic the past few years (Mini Claas Xerion, Skid Steer Loader, Telehander, Race plane and Snow groomer were all brilliant little sets). It looks more like a polybag set. Plus, the death of the B-model that this set represents makes me even more bitter.

I know, right? Total shit.

Impossible! This is a Heady-Duty Bulldozer not just any Mini Bulldozer. :P

8259 looks better and has a B-model, and no ugly red gears, so I see no similarity.

...and 4 Link Treads more.

Probably a nice source of yellow connectors:

Did you buy this set or re-brick it based on my model?

neither / nor:

I started building with my parts from the two photos in the first posting earlier today.
While I was searching for my track pieces I noted your rendering of your digital model. I have used that to smooth out the inner structure (yellow 3x5 beam) and get a better idea for the slanted motor 'hood'.

The bottom layer is and probably remains unfinished:

Good job. There are more high res. pictures on brickmerge. But there is nothing else going on on the bottom. I'm only missing 3 parts (probably pins).

I said a month ago: "At a price of $10.99 I'm not too excited.", so I'm not surprised. In today's economy, we shouldn't have expected $10.99 would produce much and it didn't.

It has in the past - quite recently, in fact.

Ah I see now they used 16T clutch gears. Those do NOT work well with chains.. The ring touches the tracks/chain, and they skip the gears much more easily.

So they look ugly AND work poorly? Great.
