Tilt and Lift Loader - a LEGO 8275 Bulldozer alternate model
An alternate model of the LEGO 8275 Bulldozer set, but this one allows for real digging!
About this creation
Though admittedly the LEGO 8275 Bulldozer set is pretty accurate to a real bulldozer, i thought i could increase the playability. You see, there is not so much floor suitable to be ripped and flattened at home :)

I modified the bucket such that it can really hold stuff, rather than merely pushing/flattening.
The bucket required a flat bottom over the whole width, enabling to scope up stuff.
Also a mechanism was devised that both lifts and tilts the bucket for using it as a real loader!

The two elastic rubber bands to the exhaust were required to offset the weight of the bucket, else the white gear wheel would start slipping when lifting a load. It definitely is no good for the looks, but i'd rather not exchange the slip gear wheel to an ordinary gear and possibly twist axles or break a gear!


In the picture you see the bucket in its tilted position to empty or to dig in the ground.

You can see the model in action on YouTube, follow this link: TiltLiftBulldozer.

There are no build instructions yet, maybe the video and pictures allow you to build it.


Happy lifting!

Looks like it works pretty well by the video. I'd suggest a counterweight instead of rubber bands, though.

I was going to give you a two because I don't care for technic or bulldozers but that video was the best thing ive seen in months. Greatness. Minus 1 for letting one of candies fall from the truck. Nice Try!
