Well, I am more prepared then ever to take on this task. I cracked open a cold one.. and got to work right away. Digging the garden and smoothing out the top soil. The sun was shining, the sky dotted with clouds – but that didn’t slow me down a bit.
The Excavator I got at “RC4WD”. It’s an online store that sells heavy duty equipment at a fairly decent price. Let’s face it – for those that know, RC construction equpiment is expensive, but there are ways to do things yourself. (ps – here’s the store link for RC4WD http://store.rc4wd.com)
The Tonka truck was converted for me by an RC ADDiCT and fabricator “JRPRC” here is his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/juddphillips He’s got a FULL Build Video Series if you are interested in converting your OWN Tonka Truck in to a working RC!
The Tonka Truck is an Axial SCX10 trail truck, broken down to fit on the chassis of the Tonka Truck. I DID Switch the Tires to a larger size. I wanted maximum height on the dump truck, and as it has NO suspension the tires really count. I also got the tires & rims at RC4WD. The Axial SCX10 I got at PMHobbycraft.com (my local hobby store.) I am powering the truck with a GensAce Battery (3s 5000mah) Lipo. I go the battery at Hobbypartz.com
The excavator is an original “Graupner”. The plastic on the cab was SO Old it became brittle. On a roll over, it shattered. but no matter – as spring/summer time loading can be done in an open cab! I think my driver enjoyed the fresh air. You can not buy this loader anymore – it is an “antique”!
All of my RC construction equipment is hydraulic based. All but the Dump Truck. The dump truck is powered by “Actuonix Motion Devices” actuators. ( www.actuonix.com) Check out there amazingly powerful equipment for RC!
