You’re Going to Reap Just What You Sow*

A metaphor for mankind during the current Coronavirus pandemic? Maybe, but in this case we’re referring to this excellent JCB Fastrac and Kuhn sowing machine attachment, as built by previous bloggee Kreso007. Superbly detailed and presented there’s more to see of both the tractor and sowing machine at Kreso’s album on Flickr via the link above. And perhaps related to today’s title, be kind to one another, look out for those isolating on their own, and don’t steal the hand sanitiser from the hospital. Yes, people really are doing that. You’ll reap what you sow…

*Today’s perfect title song.

Fastrac

Lego Technic JCB Fastrac 4220

We like big yellow tractors here at The Lego Car Blog, seeing as we’re basically overgrown children, and that’s exactly what we have for you today!

The slab of yellow magnificence pictured here is a JCB Fastrac 4220, as built by previous bloggee Technic BOOM. Like the real machine BOOM’s Technic Fastrac features all-wheel-drive and all-wheel steering, operable remotely via LEGO’s Power Functions system. There are eight motors in total, powering the aforementioned drive and steering, a high/low gearbox, and the two raising/lowering hitches mounted front and rear, the latter of which includes a power-take-off too.

It’s a quality bit of kit and there’s much more to see at Technic BOOM’s Flickr photostream and via the Eurobricks discussion forum, where you can watch a video of the Fastrac in action. Click the links to take a look.

JCB Fastrack

Insert Jumbo Jet behind for twice the awesome

GuiliuG on Brickshelf is responsible for this astonishingly technical JCB Fastrac. It features pneumatic lifts, working power take-offs, suspension, 12 speed gearbox, AWD (with 2wd switch)… basically more than all the models we’ve featured so far put together! Check out his video here, and the real thing being ‘tested’ by TopGear here, where it does something very cool with a Boeing 747…
