TT598 (Tracked Telehandler)
About this creation
TT598 Tracked Telehandler




This is my telehandler that I built using the tracks from the excavator 8043 and the main frame from 8295. The frame underwent some major modifications, but the tracks stayed the same. It is mostly PF functional, the only thing that isnt is the forks, Provided I didnt want to add excessive ammounts of weight to them with motors. It has 6 M motors for all the functions and 3 worm gear drives. Also it features auto leveling stabilizers (idea came from my friend).

Features:

  • 2 M motors for the drive for tracks

  • 1 M motor for the swing

  • 1 M motor for the stabilizers (Auto leveling!!)

  • 1 M motor for boom raise and lower

  • 1 M motor for the telescoping







Remote and list of functions



Motors and their specified functions. The worm gear drive on the lifting rams is slow, but I got the actuators to lift about 1,5-2lbs. Also the swing and stabilizers aren't too slow.



Tracks were the easiest part, I stole them off my modified Excavator 8043. This gear reduction is the perfect ammount of power to speed ratio.



The main purpose of putting actuators on the forks was to make them reach the ground, after putting the tracks on, the unit was lifted too high for the forks to touch the ground. I also put the fork roll in the right place. The 8295 had it in the wrong place. The forks adjust width wise too.



This is probably one of the cooler features, I added stabilizers to it, and then my friend suggested to put a differential in the middle, so that they would auto level. It works great. When one stabilizer hits the ground, it stops, and the other then hits the ground, then the motor applies equal pressue to both. I was going to put 4 stabilizers on it, 2 front, 2 back, but ran out of the rack pieces. I also made a 4way auto level system with three differentals, one from the drive to the other two, and then each to its own stabilizer. it works better than I thought.

This is probably one of the weirdest machines I have seen :-) but quite cool and it seems you have manage to hide quite a lot of mechanics inside. Good job!

Quoting Joost Cumps How much technic can you add in one moc? Nicely done, easy 5/5.
My theory is "Make it as functional as possible" Hey thanks for commenting on all my stuff!

Quoting Ape Fight It was hard to tell what this was from the thumbnail (maybe swap the main photo for another picture) - but I'm glad I clicked on it - it's an excellent Technic creation with loads of nice functions. It could look a little tidier, but that doesn't stop it being a 5/5 : )
I just changed the thumbnail, hopefully this one is better. Maybe ill clean it up and make a mark2 version. Thanks for commenting!
