    It is steep but it keeps with TLG price point. I will only purchase the parts I dont have ie.. new power functions, hubs, linear actuators etc.. I have all the bricks. Will be a fun build.. I hope they include a B model of a bull dozer..

    How do you know it's not? Do you know what is ?

    Yes correction, 3L pins are orange here as well.

    From where I'm sitting, image no4 the 2 bushings are orange and the technic pins with hole are yellow. If you say the pins are orange then what color are the 2 bushings in image #4 ? Theres a distinct difference in color.

    Now that's some interesting revealing close ups. Looks like the turntable is in unison with the large gear track.. thanks for the link.

    Oh ok. I work in this industry using a 390f and 973k and the sprocket fluid level here are checked and filled right at the sprocket. There is also a hydraulic tank for expansion, contraction and fill.

    Typically the hydraulic pumps are external with hoses going from the pumps to the cylinders, turntable, drive sprockets etc.. unless liebherr states in there technical manuals that the pumps are internal..

    The hydraulics run the tracks and cylinders through hydraulic pumps. This is most common in heavy equipment.

    Yes I agree. The rear sprockets are exposed to check and fill the hydraulic fluid. The front is equipped with a large roller and doesnt need any maintenance other than when it wears out and needs replacing but not very often.

    I'm hoping for the PR776 as well, that would be just brilliant. Another hoe with the reversed bucket IMHO is not really pushing TLG design team is it.. In any case I'm looking forward to obtaining the instructions and purchasing the new control system- as I already have large investments in technic pieces and bricks..

    Approx $520 USD, and $700 for me in Canada..

    4 gear racks fit into your interpretation here after a quick assembly. This may be precisely what TLG has done. Good catch here @Pruimke.

    I have the instructions on pdf. Send me a PM on how to send them to you.

    This is why assumptions are allowed. Let the accusations light up. This wouldn't be my first time being wrong nor my last. This would be a great time for TLG to incorporate both electric and pneumatic killer combination in this new system. Cant wait !!

    I'm glad you can add. I hope you can add. Ok and your suggesting the hoses run to each cylinder, which is correct Assumptions are ridiculed for a reason. This model has displayed a variety of new lego parts, can we agree to this ? Are these t-pieces identical to the older style? The only evidence i see is that there's a gear at the bottom of the LA which may be powered by a motor. At this stage of the info released by lego we can all assume until the full reveal. The hoses may certainly be cosmetic or maybe more to this than we know. The instructions will tell us both something that we dont know.
