Digging Cat

Lego Technic Caterpillar 914K

A digging cat usually only means one thing. This gives us a second use for Mr. Airhorn, who is normally only deployed for Elven-related incidents, to rid the office courtyard of the feline scourge.

Today’s digging cat is far more palatable, being this excellent pneumatically-operated Caterpillar 914K front loader from previous bloggee Thirdwigg. With pneumatic cylinders powering the lift and tilt of the boom and bucket, four-wheel-drive linked to a 4-cylinder piston engine, and Hand-of-God articulated steering, Thirdwigg’s Cat could be an official LEGO Technic set from the early 2000s (bring sets like this back please LEGO!).

There’s more to see of Thirdwigg’s Technic Caterpillar 914K at both Flickr and Eurobricks – click on the links to take a look.

    Thanks again for the post. I have added instructions to the MOC if others want to build the Loader.
