Front Loaded

Lego Technic Volvo L120H Front Loader

No, not your Mom’s Tinder pictures, but this rather neat Volvo L120H front loader from newcomer Kio Liex. Similar in look to LEGO’s own excellent 42030 Volvo L350F Technic set (which became even more excellent when we fitted it with an SBrick bluetooth brick) but a bit smaller (just like the real L120H), Kio’s model is packed with Power functions goodies.

An XL Motor delivers the drive (also turning a 6-cylinder piston engine), whilst a Medium Motor powers the articulated steering and another the bucket tilt. Lastly a Large Motor raises and lowers the bucket arm with enough power to raise the whole model off the ground.

There’s much more of Kio’s remote controlled Volvo L120H front loader to see at the Eurobricks forum here, where a link to videos can also be found in the discussion thread. Click the link above to check out the complete gallery of images and join the discussion.

Bucket o’Beatings

Lego Technic Volvo L120H Wheel Loader

Much like its real-world counterpart, this rather wonderful remote controlled Volvo L120H by Eurobricks’ mpj is not a fast machine. A smaller version of Volvo’s wheel-loader in the 42030 Volvo L350F set, mpj’s L120H can do everything the official set can, including drive via an XL Motor, articulated steering via two Medium Motor-Powered linear actuators, arm raising/lowing via another two linear actuators driven by a Large Motor, and lastly the tipping of the bucket by a  final Medium Motor.

An impressive roster of remote control functions then, which today’s discovering Elf deployed with moderate success. Unable to run over any of its colleagues thanks to the L120H’s slow speed, it drove its find into the Cage Room, up to a cage containing a sleeping Elf, and promptly tipped it out. Understandably unamused the awoken Elf remonstrated forcibly with its aggressor, who responded by simply stabbing it with the bucket, and then (very slowly) running it over. Job done.

We’ve taken the controls away now so there’ll be no more Elven violence (at least at the hands of the Volvo), and you can see more of mpj’s impressive machine at the Eurobricks forum. Click the link above to take a look.
