Working out the bucket cylinders.

Raised:

Lowered on the ground:

Here you can see the amount of travel to allow me to tilt the bucket back when loaded:

Doesn’t get much better than that.

Few more items to fabricate and then its on to the final full welding of the parts and pieces.

Then run the hydraulic lines and into final paint to finish the loader.

All thats left at that point is some wiring and main hydraulic system plumbing.

Smile

Edit: I guess I forgot about all the body work that still needs to be completed…

I really like the quick connect for the bucket.

Life has a habit of “getting in the way” of projects sometimes. Latest thing has been a “want” my wife has had for a long time now:

MUT: Murray Utility Tractor - Page 14 E079e010

2009 Mini Cooper. She’s wanted one for nearly 20 years now and this one showed up at a local lot for a good price, so we grabbed it. Its her summer commuter/toy. I’ve been giving it a good going through and fixing a few things that needed attention.

So the tractor has become a bit of a “trash collector lately:

But I should be getting back to it soon…

Starting to make this:

Just the frame though. My 3d printer is working on it now.

Thinking of dropping this body on it:

Should be cool....

3d print came out pretty good:

Couple spots to touch up on the body parts, but pretty good print for abs.

Got the itch to do a little crawling while building the 1/10 rig and to have something that can be used in the house without worrying about knocking something over or smashing whatever I'm piloting.

So I picked up a WLP C24-1 kit, a two speed transfer case and a soundboard kit that has an "all in one" receiver:

MUT: Murray Utility Tractor - Page 14 S-l16019

MUT: Murray Utility Tractor - Page 14 S-l16020

The CP24 is "RTR", so it comes with a couple LiIon batteries and a rechargeable pack for the transmitter. I'm hoping it's got a progressive steering servo, but it's only a couple bucks to buy another that this little rig needs. RTR trucks supposedly have "harder" tires, I'll live with it and if they bug me, I'll find another (softer) set.

Overall, I really like the toyota body on it. I had a Yota SR5 pickup (I think it was a "Hilux" outside of NA) back in high school with the 22r. Tough little truck, lots of fun, really underpowered.

The receiver controls lights, engine sounds, motor, steering servo and has another hook up for a servo winch should you want one. Has it's own transmitter and a small speaker as well. It's nothing special and perhaps will be fairly cheap feeling. Meh, that's what you get at these prices (I'm in Canada, we're not even close to what things cost in the USA).

All said and done, a touch shy of 200 bucks shipped to my door. Not bad for around these parts for a toy grade RC that can be upgraded to hobby grade if you want to start buying stuff for it......
