Bobcat skid loader
I like the basic design of the loader from the set 4201 Loader and Tipper, but it wasn't up to my standards, so I modified it. I tried to make the color scheme look like the Bobcat brand. Enjoy!
About this creation

Overview pic.


Hello! Today I will be showing you the upgrades that SuperSpy X made to this skid loader.


The most important change is in the bucket connection point. The Lego version was too big and bulky, and had an unrealistic tilt range. The new bracket is much smaller, but at the cost of a little durability.

Now for some technical drawings showing the pivot points and tilt ranges.


Closer on pivot points, if you couldn't see in the previous photo.


Tilt ranges.


Now lets take a look at the back. The engine access door has been completely re-designed to be more realistic.


There is also a muffler.


Back and muffler.


Lights were added so you can see in the dark.


Now let's take it for a spin!


Climbing into the cab...


Seated at the controls. The joysticks were moved to a more realistic location, and a foot accelerator pedal (gray thing on the floor) was added.


Side of the controls.


To the upper left, there is a control panel with some gauges.


Let's go!


brrrRROOMM!


Bucket raised to half-height.


Bucket raised to full height.


Bucket tipped part way down.


Bucket tipped all the way down.


Full reach height is 8 1/3 bricks high.


Raising the front of the skid loader off the ground.

Scooping some dirt...


Bucket filled.


Raising...

Well, that was fun! Don't forget to rate and comment, and to check out some more of SuperSpy X's awesome mocs!

Quoting FR NI Lovely looking bobcat better than the original, was wondering if you could make one of these similar scale to your bobcat with two seats?. http://m.flickr.com/#/photos/13419221@N02/5040928205/in/photostream/
I have been planning to make one of those eventually in my RKTECH line of creations. Keep an eye out!

Great redesign, and well presented too. you could probably make up for the lost strength by using part 92582, hinge plate 2x2 with 1 locking finger on top.
