    Technic 2021 Set Discussion

    Discussing impressions taken from pictures without being allowed even to refer (link) to them - that does not appear to be reasonable to me.
  2. The longer ones have been used on turntables together with nuts to fix the upper part of the construction from falling off.

    General Part Discussion

    I got my order of twelfe a few day ago and those align pretty well. They have different mould numbers. I didn't open the excavator yet...

    Eurobricker's share your trucks!!!!

    I wanted to have a versatile platform to build affordable (any resources: parts + time + space) trucks. - Driving by hand. - It should have (possibility to add) fake engine driven from rear axle(s). - No suspension. - No motorized functions. - Both 43.2 and 49.2 diameter wheels can be used. So I set up these: (Cabin design is heavily influenced by set 8052) From below:
  5. It's been a month since the first/only answer. Do you expect there will be more information?

    Technic 24122 Compatability

    No it's not. - the cross section is not a circle - it only fits the 'collar' width of the pinhole

    Volvo Hauler 42114 - won't dump

    I've got a small video that shows the moving parts if you would like to compare: https://brickshelf.com/gallery/rothw/technic/42114/981_20210211_195058.mp4
  9. About the clutch: The first type of clutch (part 76019) had a range of 2.5-5 N cm written on it. Its - similar looking - successor 76244 didn't have the spec written onto it. According to Brickset database the range would be 3,5-6 N cm. Last time I used it was in the bucket wheel excavator. In there, it wasn't any good: It slipped most of the time instead of delivering power to the bucket wheel. I think it is well known that the set has friction issues on that part of the excavator. During years I found that the 24tooth clutch would most likely cut the power too earlier. Both motor and gear trains would have handled much higher torque. The new, linear clutch has been added - according to BrickSet database - to four models so far: Liebherr Excavator (42100), Volvo Hauler (42114), Bell-Boing Osprey (42113), and the Concrete Mixer Truck (42112). The range given in the Brickset database is 7,5-20 N cm. 1. According to the measurements of motor power presented on the Philohome website the upper value would be well suited to the available motor power. The variation of that new part is much larger than for the old one. What is the purpose of that wide range? 2. Another common finding from several forums is that the clutch in the Osprey model wouldn't prevent small gears from getting deformed beyond use. There is no technical information from LEGO available concerning recommended or proper application of the clutch in MOCs. How should I implement this part in my models: Is it intended to protect the Control+ motors or the driven parts in the gear train? 3. Starting with 28tooth turntable some parts that cannot be taken apart any more must be assembled by the customer. This is also the case for the linear clutch. Why aren't these parts put together prior to sale?

    42116 Skid Steer Loader

    Not quite black (*) but much darker: Forklift version *) My black #21 & #22 panels are either in the Osprey or carry stickers.
  11. After Christmas I was motivated and interested sufficiently to improve on my previous versions (drafts). Both mechanism (wormgear respectively ratched) were not robust enough to rotate the drum. I wanted to set up a more solid & strong transmission from drive axle to the function gear box. However I couldn't find a solution that was small enough to fit. But I got another idea: Use a differential that would accept power from drive train and from (manual) crank instead of gear selector. From that I could derive several other improvements: - shorter worm gear set up means that truck has to move less distance before drum starts to rotate (less than 40 cm compared to 50 cm previously). - Better gear ratio = rotation speed of drum. It is more feasible to replace some of the gears to adjust the 'speed'. - Secondary drivetrain from gearbox towards rear of the truck & back is not necessary any more. - Because of that it could be feasible to set up pendular suspension for rear axles as major obstacles are now gone. Left side of leatest cement truck version: The manual crank (red) is blocked from rotating clockwise by the red&white lever. This has the cement drum powered from rear axle. Direction of ratation is clockwise (when viewed from rear side). To enable the crank you flip the lever up. This truck version has small turning cycle and tilting cabin. (More pictures will follow after upload).
  12. My guess is that a) one of the 12tooth bevel gears is is missing inside the differential OR b) one of the axles not fully inserted into differential Thus force would be -undetecably- directly to the idle (not connected) output of the front axle. Did you check if thee differential of the front axle is driven by the motor = rotating when truck is in drive mode?
  13. To me the intention remains rather vague: What is the focus = topic that will be addressed by the two sides (TLG Powered Up team and AFOL)? How much time should be spent? JIm, are you collecting candidates from this postings to this topic or from personnel message? Edit: that was a very quick answer.
  14. May I suggest something else? I consider 42042 Crawler Crane a nice building and play experience. I think it's also a good parts pack. Otherwise, 42082 has some nice C-, D-, and E-models. (I haven't build any of them but it indicates that the set is a good parts pack.) I personally am very disappointed by the penumatic arm of the Arocs 42043: there is little play fun in it.
  15. Hello, my hauler is not at hand. Therefore i would like to suggest the following tests from another topic on the set: (laying hauler on the side effectively blocks the second wheel on the axis and prevent them from spinning.) I guess the motor calibration will also work if hauler is (still) laying on on its side. This will give you the chance to see if differentials are moving. By "engine" you are referring to the fake 6-cylinder motor in front of the truck? This is powered through the trucks front axles (see step 185 on page 118 (The drive input is added in step 204, p. 132, see inset). Therefore, if cylinders are moving up and dwon, the front axle should turn as well.
