Hello everybody. I am in the process of building my own tractor. It's taken a long time, and I'm not even close to finish. One of the things I've been struggling with, is to motorize the raising and lowering of the rear hitch. I've copied/stolen the design from the 42054 Claas Xerion, so I hope someone has already done this conversion, and are willing to share how they did it. Here is a picture of the hitch design, in case you've forgotten how it is implemented in the Xerion.
Using 3385 parts only from 42082 set (83.3%) Tractor is alternate of 42054 Claas Xerion 5000 TRAC VC Color design - red hood and roof, dark bluish gray cabin, black outside surfaces, different color for important details All functions from 42054 remains: Motorized functions: * cabin rotation and elevation * schaft driving Power Take Offs (front + rear) Manual functions: * Hand of God with 3 steering modes: * 4 wheel steering * front axle steering * crab steering * PTOs elevation New functions + details: * front exhaust * reinforced front and back axle * improoved front axle steering by adding second liftarm * front engine trunk is operated via linear actuator 8 attachments: (all can be built at the same time) Manual: * snow plough (front/rear) * dead weight * water tank for animals * herse Motorized: * dual lawn mower (front/rear) * reel and hook - both direction operations + neutral for freely unload cable * windmill (ECO) Building of a crane was not possible due to missing second large turntable, on the other hand remaining pieces gave me plenty of options Why windmill? I came with the question, if there is any tractor, that is strictly battery powered - everyone is thinking ECO these days. Right now it doesn't exist, but there are some studies of how it should work. My idea came like this: windmill has integrated battery storage and acumulates energy thorough the day. For every night tractor connects to it to recharge. There is also aditional diesel motor. Windmill is realeased as separate freemium model All attachments are compatible with original 42054! 392 pages of generated instructions for experienced builder (A4 landscape orientation) - sample on bricksafe Instructions created by KAMEIV Sorry for the long video, I wanted to show all functions, and there is plenty of playability with this moc! I always liked 42054, but it was released in my dark days, when I wasn't interested in lego. This model is so good, that's almost impossible to get it 3 years after it's release date, and noone is selling it in second-hand market. So I decided to build it from newer set. Funny think though, once finished this moc and prepared for shooting video I found it for good price on aftermarket, so now I have original and alternate ;) It took me about 2.5 months to finish this creation.
