Lego RC Front Loader LeTourneau L-2350

This, according to the Guinness Book of Records, is the World’s Largest Earth Mover. Well this isn’t obviously, but it is a thoroughly well built replica of the enormous LeTourneau L-2350. Designed to load the mining industry’s huge haul trucks, the world record holding L-2350 can raise to 80 tons 24 feet into the air. This lovely Lego recreation is somewhat smaller, but it can still carry a Power Functions battery box comfortably in its bucket. Built by Tamas Juhasz aka mbmc137 it features remotely controlled bucket lifting and tilting, drive and steering, and there’s more to see of how it all works (some of which may surprise you) via the links above.
