Today something brought from my weekly videos backlog, which was not possible to post here before.
The latest revision from Jurgen Krooshoop's (Rhodeslover1) fully remote controlled Backhoe.
Notice the image on the right is one magnificent render composition, made by Eric Albretch (Blakbird) as he has used us to.
This Backhoe is the second revision and features 8 PF motors, for 9 functions.
- Driving plus steering
- Frontloader and shovel
- Backhoe dipper and bucket
- Backhoe 180º rotation (the 360º stated in the video, is mistaken)
Below another couple of revolving renders, by Eric - Delightful! ...unfortunately they are not bigger.
For additional photos, pictures and details from this Backhoe, you should access the respective page on Jurgens Technic Corner.
There you will find out also how to obtain the instructions to build one.
If you want to see the videos from the predecessors of this model, here you can find them,
- One first model with several functions still controlled via pneumatics (link). Based on JCB 4CX.
- The first version of the actual Backhoe, already without pneumatics (link). See Jurgen's website for the difference details to the actual version.
It is about time, for an actualized PF official version of the old LEGO Technic 8455 Backhoe...
