Lego John Deere Liebherr Excavator Remote Control

In the Green Corner, representing Technic and John Deere tractors, and controlled by Elf no. 17; Deseeeert Kiriiiill! Aaand in the Yellow Corner, representing Model Team and Leibherr construction equipment, and controlled by Elf. no. 42; Saaaarieeeeel!

Why do boxing introducers always add extra vowels? That’s probably not really a question for a Lego car blog, so on to the models!..

Lego John Deere Skid Steer Tractor RC

This is the latest build from previous bloggee Desert752 Kirill. It’s a John Deere 648L skid-steer logging tractor, and it’s packed with Technic functionality. With all-wheel-drive, an articulated chassis for steering, a two stage crane with rotating claw, and a front-mounted blade – all of which are individually remote controlled – Desert’s build has got more squeezed inside it than your Mom’s corset.

Lego Liebherr Excavator RC

TLCB Lego Professional Sariel has been just as ambitious. His Liebherr R974 also features a plethora of Power Functions goodies, this time employed to drive LEGO’s pneumatics system, which is all controlled by a third party SBrick bluetooth device.

These two models have seventeen motors in all, so the only way we can see of picking the best build is via an unnecessarily violent duel between them in the office. Whilst we commence this ‘research’ you can see more of what each creation can do via the following links, where there are also videos of each model in action. Let’s get ready to ruuuuumble!

Laying a Log

Lego Komatsu 951

We could put this Komatsu 951 by LegoMathijs to good use in the Elves’ cage room – there are quite a lot of logs to pick up at times. Still, that’s what the office interns are for. There’s more to see of this unusual creation at the link above.

Log Roll

Lego Komatsu 895

This strange looking contraption is a Komatsu 895 harvester, and it’s been built (beautifully we might add) by newcomer LegoMathijs. His recreation of the giant Japanese forwarder features a detailed telescopic boom, cabin and engine, and working suspension with central pivot. There’s more to see on Flickr and at the Eurobricks discussion forum – click the links to swing your axe.

Felling Bonsai Trees

Technic Feller

Mini Technic Feller for Mini Technic Trees

A Technic quickie – as our other post today is too boring to stand on its own – from Thirdwig on Flickr. Although small, this mini Feller is actually stuffed full of mechanical features. Check it out at the link in the text.

Lego Technic Feller Buncher

Insert logs for twice the awesome

Logging is big business. And big business requires big machines. This is a ‘feller buncher’, collecting logs, stripping them of branches and collecting them into piles. And it works. Yes, really, actually works. VH HH on MOCpages is the Technic genius behind it.
