Week TechVideo, 2011 #11 - LEGO Technic Grader

Recently the French forum SeTechnic, raised a challenge for whom builds the best LEGO Technic Grader, under 600 parts. Niveluse in French, as you may have seen a bunch of them popping at Brickshelf).

There was a total of 23 participants and some great models under contest. And finally the winner was chosen thru one online poll, which ended the last 11th of March.

I'd like to make here a tribute to the excellent model from Benny, who won the challenge with 25% of the total votes.




You may find a lot more pictures from Benny's model, at his Brickshelf gallery, here.


Nevertheless let me take the chance and feature the videos from the models which ranked in the next three positions of the contest.

Definitely a great inspiration for an official LEGO Technic model, which was almost unexplored by TLG. Just remember the B-model from set 8828.

The flex system universal set had quite a nice one too:

@Richard

What a coincidence! Now that we still have the Flex System poll running. :)

8453 B-Model was something similiar, too. http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=8453-1

So we have already four Graders in official sets. :)
But all of small size and always as a B-model.

Definitely it seems there is room for a larger Grader, as a main model.

In my opinion The white John Deer had the best functions
