Fully motorized model of Volvo L250G wheel loader.
About this creation
Five years after building my Liebherr L580 I present new loader, based on Volvo L250G. Main goal was to use new bucket from 42030 set. Instructions are available here:
First, picture of real machine:
And my model. It's a blend of Technic and System parts, built in 1:20 scale.
Model is driven by single PF L motor:
Steered by single PF M motor and two small Linear Actuators:
The bucket is raised by single L motor:
And tilted by single PF M motor:
Everything is controlled via two IR receivers, and powered by PF rechargeable battery:
Real machine uses reflective foil for improving its visibility in the dark. My model also has some reflective stripes:
Amazingly accurate model, both in terms of its looks and its functionality. One feature that I really liked is that the bucket tilt mechanism allows the bucket to travel through the correct full range of motion. The detailed mechanical diagrams are great, too.
