This Bobcat is inspired by the Bobcat A770 All-wheel steer loader.
About this creation
It is made with parts from the 42004 set (Mini Backhoe Loader).
Most of the parts are used.
I first wanted to check if it was possible to build a four-wheel steering vehicle with the 42004 parts.
After the chassis was built, I did some research and found that some Bobcats have indeed 4 wheel steering. The A770 became a guideline for the shape and relative proportions.
- all-wheel steering controlled with a knob on the roof
- bucket arm rotation controlled with a crank on the roof
I am sure there is plenty of room for improvement, but this shows that it is definitely possible to build a 4WS Bobcat using the 42004 set.
