Default dismantling ertl rc john deere 9520 tractor

Can anyone give me some help please. My tractor finally arrived from the States and I have started to strip it down to fit new electronics and lights into it but I can't seem to find a way of getting the wheels off I'd rather ask before I use brute strength and end up breaking it. The model has duals on it. Thanks

The clever design of most Bruders means they're very difficult to disassemble. They weren't made to come apart.

Careful cutting with a Dremel cutoff wheel makes it a lot easier. I couldn't get a Bruder Grader apart without one.

Thanks for the replies. I will take some pics and post them if you want a better idea of what it looks like before i can get the pics done it is a 1/10 scale JD 9520 made by Ertl . It is already an rc model but the remote is missing. I have bought a new remote with receiver and a lighting kit so that is the reason i need to split it .I have seen a converion done on a German site but it is not in English.

Hi there . I typed in rc john deere into Google scrolled through the images saw a picture of my tractor and clicked on the link and looked at the various photos of the work they had done to theirs . Now I know it is possible I want to crack on with it but after taking out loads of screws it still will not split . I need to get the cab off as this seems to be the place where the electronics are . The link is John Deere -rc-Modellbau-RC John Deere von ERTL

I dont think there is a thread . I just stumbled upon it by looking at the images on google. I was looking to see if there was anything out there about previous conversions to that model but as yet i have drawn a blank

Finally got the model split into the various bits . Just wondering if anyone can give me some advice on the steering of it . There is two big motors sitting on top of each other which i suppose is the drive but i havent found a servo for steering it . As it is articulated there was two springs either side of the
pivot pin so i dont know if it steered via the circuit board anyone know if other models have been converted

Hi there i had a look inside a Hobby engine wheel loader some time ago and it was similar artic type steering , it was steered by a motor/gears set up so im guessing your john deere is maybe same sort of idea ! just my initial thoughts but thought it maybe some help !

I think you are right . There seems to be a big plastic case where the front axle is with the drive motors situated top and bottom. I think there are some type of gearing system inside of it which slows one side down to steer and with the back half floating it just follows

in that case if you want to make origional motor for streering work with new hobby grade transmiter/ reciever all you need to do is fit a small esc say around 10amp should be more than upto the job

i have used these in various models with no problems handy thing is theres no break like some so ideal for steering and drive/wheel motors . hope this helps

Thanks for the help . I think i will get a couple of those esc s because once i have finished the john deere off i have a bruder massey ferguson to convert and i have leds , arduinos to play with. Back to the jd i have got a flysky 6 ch transmitter/receiver to use as i wanted extra channels to get the lights working. I have got a lighting kit and put some leds into the work lights just need to wire up , only problem is limited to what i can do in my truck cab
