Green Machine

As TLCB’s home nation has just confirmed that the sale of new non-zero emission vehicles (that’s petrol, diesel, LPG, and Hybrid) will be banned in just nine years time, this humble corner of the internet is getting with the times and posting something green. Well, it is.

Lasse Deleuran‘s John Deere 6130R is very green indeed. In fact it’s very nearly as green as LEGO’s own excellent 42054 Claas Xerion 5000 set, with which Lasse’s model shares its scale and rear hitch mechanism (meaning implements designed for the Claas set will also fit this).

It also includes a wide range of mechanical functionality, including a working 4-cylinder engine, functioning steering, and a selectable PTO via a lever in the cab.

There’s more of Lasse’s John Deere 6130R to see on Flickr, where you can also find a link to building instructions should you wish to go green for yourself.
