Like I said in this topic Z-bar linkage help, I am building another wheel loader. This time is the Caterpillar 990 which is the biggest one I can build because the bigger ones like the 992, 993 or 994 have two cylinders for the bucket and it would be impossible keep the width in scale. It uses the Class tyres and in the beginning it had to be manual but I have so many room that I am thinking on a complete pneumatic RC loader. I hope you like the WIP process every advice is wellcome. I am trying wheels, should I have to buy the yellow ones?.
I am finally done with my first real MOC that I am happy with and proud to show to all of you LEGO fans out there. This is my version of the Volvo L120H wheel loader. It is build in scale 1:17. I have used a M-motor for the sterring and bucket tipping, a L-motor for the bucket-arm lifting and a XL-motor for the drive. All of them are geared down to ensure enough power (except the sterring). I am using two standard IR receivers and the small rechargeable battery pack. I have considered lights but I think the wires will look messy. I am considering building it in Stud.io to get a brick count and if I do that then instruction might be an option. I have made it from these specs (page 18): https://www.volvoce.com/-/media/volvoce/global/products/wheel-loaders/wheel-loaders/brochures/brochure_l110h_l120h_stagev_en_21_20057313_b.pdf?v=QA5EPw Worker on Studio gallery: https://www.bricklink.com/v3/studio/design.page?idModel=82000 Worker instructions: http://liex.dk/LEGO_MOCs/Worker_1-17/Worker - scale 1-17.pdf And now for the pictures, I hope you enjoy.
When I was fixing my sailing boat earlier this year, there was this odd looking, really old loader standing up where my boat is parked. The unusual thing was the entire loading apparatus seemed to sit on a turntable! Anyways, this was before I rekindled my interest for LEGO, but the image stuck with me, and as I got more confident with the new studless building techniques, as well as my collection grew (I also discovered Bricklink), I decided to try and make one. Been working on this for a month or so, it has been rebuilt two times, and I am many experiences richer. I especially wanna thank Alasdair Ryan and JorgeOpesi for valuable feedback and help! The features are: -Adjustable side mirrors -Openable "doors" -PF seatbelts for the driver -Front and rear PF lights -AWD powered by one PF XL Motor -Steering by two mini LA's, powered by one PF M Motor -Lifting of digger by two large LA's, by one PF L Motor -Tipping of bucket by one LA, powered by one PF L motor -Turning of the digging apparatus by one PF-M motor -Fed by a standard PF Battery box -Pendular suspension on rear axle The creation is not based on a particular real life vehicle (I don't even know if there is something remotely similar-looking), the main goal was to make something presentable, with the desired functions. Pictures: So there we go! I was going to make a video today, but I was suddenly out of batteries for the PF elements! Will try to have one up during the course of the weekend! I'm fairly pleased with the result, seeing as this is my first big MOC with many functions apart from driving and steering
