Lego Combine Harvester Tractor

No! Not that hateful game that annoyed everyone on Facebook for about 5 years. Don’t worry, we’re not inviting you to grow carrots or whatever bullcrap that pointless procrastination aid was peddling. Instead we have these two excellent farming machines to show you, both of which come from Kreso007 of Flickr. On the left is a Massey Ferguson 7345 combine harvester whilst on the right is a John Deere 9460RT, and there’s more to see of each by clicking here.

Harvest Time

Lego Technic Deutz-Fahr 6040 Combine Harvester RC

This is a Deutz-Fahr 6040 combine harvester (no, us neither), but vehicles such as this are vital for the continual feeding of the Earth’s 7.4 billion human mouths. This incredible fully remote controlled Technic version comes from Flickr’s Krešo Krejča and it’s absolutely packed with mechanical wizardry. The drive, steering, and the rotating, raising and lowering cutting bar are all powered via LEGO Power Functions motors, plus there’s a trailer to tow the cutting bar for road use, a detailed cabin, and opening hatches galore. There’s lots more to see of the Deutz-Fahr at Krejca’s photostream – click the link above to bring in the harvest.

Look at the Fields – They Are Ripe for Harvest.

Lego Bizon ZO56 Combine

This beautifully-built Bizon ZO56 combine harvester comes from Flickr’s Damian Z. aka Thietmaier. Abounding in detail, Damian’s model faithfully recreates one of the most well-known and recognisable Polish harvesters, although if like us you’re neither Polish nor a combine harvester expert that probably means little! We’ll trust Damian that it’s accurate, and it also allows us to write a title that tenuously links the model in this post to Christmas. Points for us! You can see more of Damian’s Bison ZO56 on Flickr – click the link above to gather the crop.

Harvest Festival

claas-harvester

It’s been Harvest Festival at TLCB Towers this morning. One of the Elves returned triumphantly from Michal Skorupka’s PhotoStream driving this superb remote controlled Claas Lexion 760 combine harvester. With thirteen Power Functions motors powering everything from the drive and steering to the combine head rotation and elevation, the feeder, and the rear spreading mechanism, there was plenty for the aforementioned Elf to do.

As is traditional with Power Functions models, he proceeded to use the machine to reap his colleagues. So whilst we clear up the mess, we suggest that you enjoy the video of the harvester in action below. Michal has chosen a rocking backing track for his video.  Those of our readers who might prefer a more traditional track should follow this link.

Micro Machines

Lego Micro Machines

We’re on a bit of a nostalgia trip here in TLCB office. If you were a child of the 1990s you probably remember Micro Machines; a gloriously diverse range of tiny (but quite detailed) plastic vehicles released from 1987 until the mid-’90s. This particular TLCB writer only had around five – possibly second-hand, and had totally forgotten they existed until today’s find, but even so the sight of the little creations pictured here brought childhood memories flooding back.

Whilst we reminise about summers in the park, VHS tapes, riding with stabilisers, and that one inappropriate uncle, you can check out the wonderfully inventive micro-scale vehicles built by Flickr’s Keko007 at his photostream. There’s a car, an articulated container truck, a tractor and trailer, a combine harvester, a bulldozer, and an excavator, all of which brilliantly demonstrate what can be done with just a handful of little plastic bricks.

Two Tractors Tuesday

Lego Claas Xerion 5000

Farming is tough work, but you do get to drive some very exciting machinery. Often both more expensive and more exotic than most supercars, farming vehicles have got seriously high-tech. At the forefront are Claas, with tractors like this Xerion 5000. Built by Flickr’s Jakeof_ it’s packed with neat detailing and there’s more to see via the link above.

Today’s second piece of agricultural equipment, and looking like some sort of mechanised harbinger of doom, is this fictional ‘TUC’ combine harvester from Flickr’s Smigol. If and when the Zombie Apocalypse happens, we want to be in one of these! There’s more to see at Smigol’s photostream – click the link above to make the jump.

Harvest Time

Lego Technic Combine Harvester

It was quiet in TLCB Towers over the past few days. The Elves were out foraging for creations, thus allowing TLCB Staff to get whatever it is they do done, away from any Elf-related shenanigans. That productivity ended today.

Three creations were found, and – as is almost always the case – this started an Elf fight. This time though, one Elf had a distinct weaponry advantage…

Usually our smelly little workers employ the use of stationary, kitchen utensils and other office supplies to tip the odds in their favour. Unfortunately for the two Elves equipped as per the above, one of today’s combatants brought along an enormous remote control combine harvester…

It’s safe to say that a hand whisk is no match for several kilograms of remotely controlled whirling plastic.

The machine in question – a Bizon ZO56 – was found on Brickshelf, and whilst it is responsible for quite a lot of Elf blood on the office carpet, it’s also a damn good build. Trawson21 is the builder behind it, and there’s lots more to see, including a link to a video of the harvester in action, on Brickshelf at the link above.

Satan’s Lawnmower

Lego Claas Jaguar

This Claas Jaguar looks pretty dangerous up front – it’d be the perfect vehicle for a zombie apocalypse! Just us? OK.

You can see more of the Claas at Eric Trax‘s Flickr photostream, whilst we imagine mowing down the undead hordes…

Newer Holland

Lego New Holland Combine

Following the huge Technic New Holland T8.420 published here last month, here’s one from the other end of the Lego size chart. This Town scale New Holland tracked combine harvester was suggested to us by a reader. It’s been built by Brickshelf’s keko007 and you can see more at the link.

200 Club

Lego Technic Front Loader Mini

Two hundred Lego pieces. It isn’t a lot is it? Especially if you’re aiming to build a functional Technic model.

Lego fan site Eurobricks has set the challenge of using just two hundred elements to create a whole new Lego Technic set. Here at The Lego Car Blog Towers we use two hundred bricks every time we build a steering rack, because we’re a bit rubbish, so we’re not really qualified to enter. Thankfully the interweb contains far more talented builders than us, and here are two such prudent engineers.

First up (above) is previous bloggee Jorgeopesi with his two hundred piece mini Technic front loader. He’s used the meagre parts count to produce a raising and tipping bucket, hand-of-God steering system and even pendular suspension on the rear axel. See more of his excellent mini front loader on Brickshelf via the link above.

Our second two hundred piece Technic model comes from fellow Brickshelf user Nikolyakov (also on MOCpages), and he’s also taken the machinery route. Nikolyakov’s mini combine harvester features a raising and lowering harvesting head – which also spins when the wheels are turned, hand-of-God steering, and posable unloading pipes. You can see more of his mini combine via the links above, and you can check out the rules, prizes and other entries in the Eurobricks two hundred piece challenge by visiting the Eurobricks site here.
