42054 alternate model – Wheel Loader. Features two manual and two motorized functions. Instructions can be bought at Sellfy.
My second try on making one set MOC. I have decided to make a wheel
loader, because Xerion comes with wheels that suits a wheel loader
perfectly. The main goal was to have easy operated wheel loader, so I
have decided to use gearbox that works like that used in 42042 – battery
box turns the motor ON/OFF, levers controls functions and direction
they works in.
There are two manual functions, which are Hand od God steering and grapple closing/opening.
Motorized functions are arm & grapple movement.
biggest challenge while building this model was to have appropriate
range of movement of the arm, while using only three small linear
actuators with their short stroke.
Few pictures, more below:
The model comes with full
building instructions, that are divided into submodels (like chassis,
cab, arm, gearbox, grapple, etc.).
Parts used: 1580.
