Week TechVideo, 2010 #21 - LEGO Technic at work

It slipped a few days after week 21...

But today I'd like to show a couple of old videos from Cristian Sala (Tristian), featuring a Lima 2400 Crawler Dragline from Beat Felber (Engineering with ABS), while exhibited at ItLUG Torino Legofest back in 2006.



We can't really see too much details on t the Crawler itself, but what caught my eye, was the solution with cables to operate the bucket.

Among other constructions, Felber is known for his large (sometimes huge) Mining Equipment models, from which the photos below are a very good example...

Model of the stripping shovel Marion 5760, The Mountaineer


Would you attempt to "Beat" it...

For a second, I thought "The Mountaineer" was a real piece of mining equipment, until I clicked the picture and saw the telltale LEGO brick patterns in the back. That is an awesome model indeed!
