Week TechVideo, 2009 #16 - Crawler Crane

You may have noticed this has been much quiet at TBs , lately...
Well I've been a lot busy, preparing everything for my LUG biggest event this year.

So lets make it fast this week!

A big Crawler Crane, by Norbert.
When you think that's all, there is even more coming...

It is a XL Crawler Crane with 8 PF motors (4 XL-motors, 4 M-motors), and controlled via 4 IR receivers.
Height of this crane is approx. 170cm and it was built with more than 4700 LEGO® parts, according to its author.

IR remote control:
  • Channel 1: Lift up/down the suspended ballast (XL-motor); Winch 1, to move the Derrick boom (M-motor)
  • Channel 2: Winch 2, to move the main boom (M-motor); Winch 3, to move the luffing fly jib (M-motor)
  • Channel 3: Traveling gear left (XL-motor); Traveling gear right (XL-motor)
  • Channel 4: Winch 4, to move the hook; Turn the crane

You may also see it in action, raising an entire Dump Truck (8264), here.

Have a nice week and lets wait for new stuff in some days.
