    I hope you find a solution for your boom. is it not an option to connect cross axles with connectors, so you habe the right lengh of axle? Or is something slipin gover the axle?

    Yes, cleared some snow. For those how missed the video:

    Claas Torion, and same configuration of pneumatic cylinders. also mine placement of XL and pumps motors are the same, not intentional of course. Looks great. I'm looking forward to see your model completed.

    Check here. It is a bit hard to see. I hope I can do tomorrow picture of the real model.

    So what are you building then? Also a Wheel loader? Which linkage do you mean? Of the bucket?

    Yes, if you are purist the it is not an option. As already mentioned befor it may works with the Mindstorms 51515 hub and the PU motors. Maybe I will transform it one day but I think the mindstorm hub is still rather expensive. I saw your progress. It looks great. Waiting for the final result. You are wellcome and yes, more is not possible

    Hi Thanks for all your nice words about my model. great you like my MOC. Happy about this. What do you don't like about the Sbrick? Price? No we have PU but for this model PU elements are to big. Maybe it would work with the mindstroms 51515 hub. I love pneumatics but LA are better in many aspects. But here the LA hadn't fit in the front part. I'm also wating for more pneumatic LEGO Technic model. Everything is ready now, even for remote control pneumatic models thanks :) Check the picture: https://bricksafe.com/files/FT-creations/wheel-loader-inspired-by-volvo/volvo L120H_V35_wires_hoses.png Actually, the existing bucket linkage was not realy helpful. that was the hardest part the make it work. Somehow the bucket linkage of LEGO buckets are not made for compact builds. In my opinion there is no need for the new hubs. There is enough power coming from the PF XL motor. If you need more power you can still gear it to 3:1 in the hub. Now it is 1.66:1. realy deep analysis of the crank version in the valve system. never tought about this advantage. I like the small JCB loader. Is still assembled :) Shoveling arount bricks was the most fun part :)

    Hi, thanks. I geared down the PF servo motor. With a linear joystick at the gampad controller it the valve can be steered in small steps. check here:
  9. Hi everyone After one year I finished another MOC. Here I present my wheel loader inspired by Volvo wheel loader L120H with technic chassis and creator style body. The model is controlled by two Sbricks an powered by one small PF battery boy. The boom and the bucket are controlled with pneuamtic cylinders coupled to a geared servo motor with the newest pneumatic valves. Like this it is possible to control "heavy" loads precisely. Furthermore, the model has an auto compressor which is controlled via the BrickController2 app, where it is possible to add one port of the Sbrick (here the compressor) to two independent other functions (here the two servo motors with the valves). Like this the pump always switches on as soon as one of the pneumatic function is selected. But check the functionality in the following video: Instruction is available on rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-64106/FT-creations/wheel-loader-inspired-by-volvo/#details

    European 8x4 Dump Truck inspired by Scania

    I hope you can find sleep soon again. Im looking foreward to the Fastrac project. Why are you working with IR at your telehandler? Or did i got something wrong?

    What went wrong? Corona? The "leaf springs" only hold the axle in place and have therefore a similar function as real leaf springs. But, I use the short soft light blueish gray springs where in real trucks the shock absorber is mounted. Therefore, it is not a correct leaf spring suspension As Igor mentioned you can find infos on rebrickable but also somewhere here in the forum. But in short: it is a scale 1:16.5 JCB Telehandler controlled with two Sbrick (5 functions) and custom tires. For the instructions I used the old LEGO tires and the model works also with these tires very good although the tires sit on the wrong rims. Thanks

    I'm glad you like my telehandler. I like it too. But the Scania should be easier to build and should be more reliable. Next project is the Volvo L120H. Already started and should be similar to the telehandler in regards of speed and maneuverabilitiy.

    Thanks. Batterybox is a bit chunky but over all I think it fits. The other option was used by @huwi Anyhow, the hub fits much better than the PF batterybox. I'm realyy happy about the tail gate mechanism. Also used it in a similar way at the mack anthem dump truck and the MAN TGS 6x4 with crane and dumper. @huwi may dumper is not as strong as Huwis dumper but it can also dump a ful dumper of 1x1 round bricks. If you mount the tumper 1 stud higher then it is even stonger. But I wanted to have a stright line with the lower cabine edge. This was the goal.
  14. Hi This weekend I could finsish the 8x4 dump truck project which I started somewhen in February. It is a simple 8x4 dump truck inspired by Scania G450XT. The functions are driving, steering, dumping and automatic tail gate locking. Everthing is controlled via Powered Up. I control the model with the brickcontroller2 app. For propulsion I used 2 x PU L motors and for steering and dumping one PU L Motor. I'm really happy with the PU system. For this moc it works great and the model is powerful. At the front axle I developed a new supension system. it is inspired by leave spring systems. However, there are no leave springs since I haven't found a proper solution for LEGO. Anyhow, the suspension works great. The model is built in scale 1:16.5 and fits to my telehandler and other mocs and Technic sets (42043)

    FT's Technic corner - MAN TGS 6x4 with bucket gripper

    I think so. But manly, the mechanical levers are optimized. But it can also depend on each cylinder. Not all are sliding equally. But there are also disadvantages: You need more tubing and the joint where the bucket is fixed on the arm oscillates I think so. But manly, the mechanical levers are optimized. But it can also depend on each cylinder. Not all are sliding equally. But there are also disadvantages: You need more tubing and the joint where the bucket is fixed on the arm oscillates worse due to the resistance of the pneumatic hoses. Furthermore, the timing of the both cylinders can be off if the resistance is not the same in both cylinders since the air always goes the way with the lowest resistance.
