weavil posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingToday I was able to post my latest build (due to personal matters). The Generic Mower 2000! I wanted, again, to make something non-branded, so a riding mower it was. Not much about the build really; It has a two cylinder water cooled diesel. Four wheels. Pivoting front axle. The mower deck can be turned on and off. The seat flips up. The trailer has a removable back. The trailer can dump too. I for some reason was having trouble with the deck because how I modeled it, I did not have the clearance or parts to make the deck raise and lower. Taking care of the flowers and grass. Just a little flex. 15 horsepower of ultimate power! Ready for work. The remaining pictures are located here! and video is here!
weavil posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingSo after about a year (or more) out of building, I went looking for something to build. I wanted to try and build something that wasn't common like a car, truck, or typical construction stuff. I thought riding mower, but that had been done with good or better skill. Then I thought zero turn mower! I looked and the Technic models I found did not look great or was someones C-model of a newer set. Well I had made up my mind! A zero turn mower I will make! It took longer then I liked for, not being in the game for a while, but I eventually shook of the rust and got back into the flow. The mower is some what based on a Snapper ZTR mower because of the wheels I had. This one is the third build, because I kept having a time getting the drive and chassis right for it to function like a mower. The mower has a V-Twin engine, triple blade deck, deck height adjustment, and a lever to engage/disengage the blades. The hardest part of the build was working out getting a clutch in there to engage the blades and working out the belts. Lego's "rubber bands" were too short/tight to use so I used two old o-rings for when I rebuilt my transmission. Enough rambling and onto the pictures! If you need higher resolution here is the folder with the pictures.
