I finally completed my new Moc: a Volvo L120H wheel loader in 1:17,3 scale.
I started this project about 1,5 years ago, then I had a pause during last spring/summer, and I restarted working on it on October 2017.
It has 4 powered fuctions:
- forward/backward (L motor)
- steer (2 mini LAs powered by M motor)
- rise/lower main arm (2 LAs powered by L motor)
- bucket (1 mini LA powered by M motor)
All the electric components are hidden inside the bonnet, except one M motor which is in the cab.
The main goal was to obtain the correct movement of the arm and the bucket. I worked with the original drawings scaled to the model size. At the end, the linkage works quite well and the bucket stays parallel during the movement of the arm.
The battery box is on the back and can be easily be easily removed to change the batteries.
Stickers are home-made.
I'd like to change the rims with the 6 pin holes rims, but at the moment I only have the 3 pin holes ones.
FInally, a short video, but I'm going to make an outdoor video soon :
