[MOC] Terex RH400 Mining Excavator (Obsolete)

Recommended Posts

Really nice model! When seeing this I immediately want to start building a machine again! I'm curious how it really operates and looking forward to a video!

What a beast!

That is some impressive excavator.

I love the shovel.

Normally I am no fan of stacked technic beams to close a surface, but in this case it really works. The whole thing just radiates raw power.

I assume that the motors for the tracks are also in the superstrucure?

Wow. Please tell me you will make (paid) instructions!

This one deserves to be frontpaged IMO.

I love the combination of red and grey. It seems it works great, but could make a video where it's actually moving, not just pictures of it doing something. Great Job!

I hope sheo will release BI, of course I'd be happy to pay for! Beautiful machine, bucket has the best design I've seen. I'll be watching, I'd love to build this............ :wub::thumbup::thumbup:

I have lots of LBG and Red pieces, I need to use these up!

Thank you all for your comments!

Yes, they are, as well as the motors for lifting and opening the bucket.

Wow. Please tell me you will make (paid) instructions!

I hope I will have some time to make instructions and share them!

A sister for my caterpillar 6090 but mine only has 5 motors :blush: , very good work.

Great MOC, it's more advanced than mine at least in terms of mechanics!

I like every part of it, but why red color?

I notice there is no yellow.

According to available images and videos, real Terex RH400 machines are usually colored in red and white.

cool, what its weight?

With or without the driver? That's a huge difference! :D

Awesome machine! Colors work together well. The lever type ( or whatever they are called) LA mounts on the boom are intriguing. Bucket is built superbly, and reverse mounting the LAs on the bucket must have been a bit tricky. Love the fans too!

I see there are three u-joints at the boom/bucket connection. I suppose one u-joint is for the bucket open/close and one for the LAs that tip the bucket, but what is the third u-joint for?

Very nicely done. :thumbup: :thumbup:
