  1. Hi! After a long break without Lego's I come back with new model: Trailed Potato Harvester for 42054 Claas Xerion 5000 Around 3 years ago I saw self propelled potato harvester and I thought – Yeah, big piece of machine that would be nice to made out of Lego! Couple months passed and 42054 Claas Xerion 5000 came out. Then I thought that it could be a good idea to make harvester as attachment for Lego tractor. Finally after around 8 months of building it’s ready. Potato / beet harvesters are divided into 2 categories: self propelled (often with haulm topper, up to 4 rows at once) and trailed (smaller with less functions, maximum 2 rows). In this nomenclature my harvester is single row trailed potato harvester with bunker (collection container). There are many brands that make this kind of harvesters. Most known are Grimme, DeWulf, AVR or ROPA. Construction visually is based on Grimme products but it’s not an exact copy of any particular model. My goal was to design a harvester that will suit Claas in shape and also looking like official set (for example ¾ pins on conveyor belts are in tan colour, main propulsion shafts are yellow, there are no illegal connections etc.). But to make it more real I’ve added couple stickers (some of them are original like side warning flags or computer controls - rest I’ve made myself). And so Grimme logo transformed into Harvester logo intentionally maintaining its original shape, other stickers stayed unchanged (like yellow warning signs). I didn’t want to use any additional engines inside harvester. Instead this I used tractor PTO for delivering power to all conveyor belts. And it works. But to achieve overall sufficient performance of harvester I had to make 2 changes in Claas. Firstly I’ve added one more clutch onto PTO shaft to increase force needed to make them slip, secondly M engine is replaced by L (with no additional bricks used). Another problem was how to transfer motion from tractor providing full freedom of movement. I decided to go with BALL JOINT which is mostly used in suspensions. To provide a fast and easy connection I’ve also built a special mount for Claas. It’s compact, versatile and lets you connect any type of attachments which use ball joint connection. Overall dimensions of harvester are: 450mm length, 323mm width, 214mm height. It weights almost 2kg. Estimated part count: 2300. From Claas PTO power goes to gearbox which splits movement into 2 directions – for moving main and sorting conveyor belt (simultaneously), and unloading belt. For main belt overall gear ratio is 1:4,68, sorting 1:14,1 and unloading 1:18,75. To control which conveyor belts should be moving there is a lever on the right side of harvester. Turning it left engages main and sorting belts, turning right – unloading belt. Additionally right lever puts main belt into transport mode. Every moving part is secured by clutches inside tractor. The most challenging part was finding a “sweet spot” for main conveyor belt and brushes to make “potatoes” collecting possible. Lowest point (tiles) is around 1mm above the ground which means that harvesting is possible only on flat, smooth surfaces like table or floor. Maybe 1x1 round bricks would look better as potatoes instead 2x2 but in this configuration they are too small for this. After passing brushes main conveyor belt transports bricks to the top where originally is stone and earth separator. As it is only a Lego model and it uses single motor I didn’t want to decrease power by adding more brushes or moving parts so I’ve simplified this a little bit. Next stop is sorting belt. Now it’s a time for human workers. Even there is a separator it may happen that bigger stone (simulated by gray bricks) came through. Their task is to take it and put into ejector that is located at the end of harvester. After that clean and inspected “potatoes” land into collecting container called bunker. When work is done it’s time to unload yields. To do that simply switch lever to right and potatoes will unload itself. On this occasion I’ve made a “slightly” modified trailer from 8063 set which I’ll describe later in separate topic. When there is a need to transport harvester, main conveyor belt can be raised and lock about 5mm above ground by switching second lever. In addition I made here a blockade. When main conveyor belt is in transport mode it’s impossible to turn it on. Only unloading belt can be engaged. It works in both ways so when main belt is moving it can be raised but can’t be locked. More additional photos: Okay, more or less I’ve described how it works and why it looks like this. Of course best experience beside looking at pictures (especially for Technic MOCs) is to watch a video. Inside it basically there is everything which I described above so if you didn’t read it all is not lost :) Feel free to comment and ask questions. Thanks!
  2. [MOC] KOMATSU 931.1 harvester

    Hi, A few weeks ago I've finished this MOC. Finally I've had time taking some pictures of it. This model is a minifig scale version of the KOMATSU 931.1 harvester. It has some functions of the real machine: · Engine · 360 degrees rotating cabin · Rotating operators chair · Ladder · Suspension with central pivot · Telescopic boom · 365 head · Cabin door · Hood · Autolev (cab levelling) Pictures: 01_KOMATSU_931.1 by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 02_KOMATSU_931.1 by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 04_KOMATSU_931.1 by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 18_KOMATSU_931.1 by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 06_KOMATSU_931.1 by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr Overview of the functions: 19_KOMATSU_931 by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr more pictures at flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mathijslegofan/albums/72157668824858191 I hope ypu like it.
  3. Hi, My main LEGO project of 2015: a KOMATSU forest layout with two forestry machines of KOMATSU forest. Both built in the Model Team style. The layout contains the KOMATSU 951 harvester, one of the newest and largest harvester of KOMATSU Forest, and the KOMATSU 895 forwarder, the largest forwarder of KOMATSU Forest.. Both built in a small scale and with several functions from the real machines. I've posted both a few months ago in the Technic forum.

  4. This 1:25 scale harvester is the KOMATSU 951. It’s a brand new and the biggest harvester of KOMATSU Forest. I’ve decided to build this harvester to display in my KOMATSU Forest layout (which I post soon). I’ve built as much as functions of the real 951 harvester in my model. It took 1,5 month to build this model. I’ve built the following functions: · Suspension with central pivot · Telescopic boom · KOMATSU S172 head (which can rotate like the real one) · Ladder for enter the cabin · Rotating operators seat · Door can be opened · Rotating cabin · Possible to stabilize the cabin when driving on sloping surfaces · AGCO Power 74 engine Pictures: 01_KOMATSU_951 by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 02_KOMATSU_951 by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 03_KOMATSU_951 by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 08_KOMATSU_S172_head_and_telescopic_boom by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr KOMATSU S172 head 11_cabin_hinge_sideways by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 12_cabin_hinge_forwards by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 15_overview_functions_KOMATSU_951 by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr Overview of functions Hope you like it
  5. Ideas for a tomato harvester

    I've brought the old(ish) farm sets out of storage and built them up for my 3 yr old to play with, as he loves farm equipment. Actually, he does fairly well at putting them together himself, as long as I lay the peices needed for the next few steps out in front of him. However, the last few weeks he has focused on one thing--he wants a Lego tomato harvester. Must be from one of those mighty machine DVD's. I really have little idea of where to start, other than that it'll probably need a conveyor belt in the front. Has anyone else ever tried to make one?
  6. My entry for the Technic MINI contest is the KOMATSU 931.1 harvester. I’ve decided to build the KOMATSU 931.1 for this contest because it’s an interesting vehicle which have some nice elements to build with a maximum of 200 parts. In real, the harvester fulfills a certain need for it’s users because of the functionallity of it. That makes it an interesting, special vehicle to build on scale. On the following pictures, you can see the KOMATSU 931.1 is harvesting some trees: 1_KOMATSU_931.1 by LegoMathijs, on Flickr 3_KOMATSU_931.1 by LegoMathijs, on Flickr 6_KOMATSU_931.1 by LegoMathijs, on Flickr The harvester is moving the cutted trees: 9_KOMATSU_931.1 by LegoMathijs, on Flickr A closer look at the functions of the KOMATSU 931.1: 11_KOMATSU_931.1_technical_overview by LegoMathijs, on Flickr Parts count: 12_KOMATSU_931.1_parts_count by LegoMathijs, on Flickr If you like to see more pictures of the KOMATSU 931.1: Flickr
  7. Blacktron Harvester

    When Blacktron Reconnaissance discovered the value of pollen from Persei Six, they created the Harvester Drones to steal as much of it as possible. Unlike the Nalongii Pollinator the Harvester has received some inbuilt aggressive programming and the accompanying "wing chung" unarmed combat techniques. Side by side with the Nalongii Pollinator!
  8. Does anybody know this beast? Found this on youtube: Just one word: Awesome.
  9. I present my entry to the Eurobricks Technic Triple challenge. We are off to the sod farm. Ever wondered how they grew such nice grass on your local golf course or the town square? They probably ordered sod and used machines just like these. The MAN TGS has working doors, steering, and a three part crane. The JCB 150t has working tracks, lifting and tilting forks. The Brouwer 1576 has a working 2 cylinder motor and working steering. The harvesting arm features a high speed cutting blade, and a timed blade that cuts the sod pieces to length, and a conveyor to move the sod up to the back pallet. Finally, the pallet holder can be dropped to let the full sod pallet off the back.

Arthur guides them around the corner of the building to a side door - Lilith's office. Sure enough, Lilith Etenant herself is standing there, rapping her plam lightly with her rapier. The lietunant nods at the heroes curtly, examining them closely. Much to her relief, three out of the five heroes had been deemed "worth something" by her Captain... she wouldn't say it outright quite yet, but she was fairly confident in this crew. "Ah, you've arrived. I'm hoping that we may be able to give the Wolfgang another lasting wound, especially after we defeated all three of their generals. Just my luck that I was stuck patrolling the outer perimeter... I do wish I could've been more involved in all of that, but such is fate. Now, then - time to get down to business. Are all of you here?" Are your inventories correct? I will edit in any purchases you make. You have 24 hours to confirm... let's get this show on the road.
