When you find a decent broom to work for such project, lmk guardian, it'd be much appreciated.

I shot vid this morning hauling equipment to a new job site. The last couple minutes of the video, I added the last eight feet of roadway this morning. Where the trk turned in front of the camera, I could then go straight out the window & exit the basement to outside the house.

I'm going to use the dozer to level off the top of the dirt wall so I can use that area to store processed earth from this winter's activities and then it will be a short haul to trk it outside next summer.


Here's a couple of other vids I made yesterday cleaning up the last bit of south wall that I'll chip away for the time being. I'm going to move my excavation to under my west porch for the rest of the winter.

I am amazed that your rig can could pull that Dozer and trailer up onto the dirt area even with the rear suspension articulating so much!

How much does the Dozer weigh? It's gotta be 15 lbs or more?

Well, it's a combination of a few things Scott.
1) big gripper tires
2) each tire has nearly a pound of BB's within
3) furthurest rear diff is servo lockable
4) twin 12v motor drive for consistent power
5) overall reduction in 1st gear 201 : 1 to keep from breaking traction too easily
6) solid steel 1/2 x 3/4 bumper hanging in front for added weight on front axle

The trk weighs just over 17lbs and the dozer is about 12.5lbs.

Thanx ae racer. Don't wish for it, work for it!

I should have gotten one these Bruder lowboys yrs ago, it sure adds alot of fun to the quarry.


Here's a teaser for the next video I'll upload tonite, Hauling Rock.

Yeah, I need to do alot of things Spliffy, the list is ongoing.

I use 12v viper marine 15A esc's in all my trks, I've never had one burn out yet and they all are more than 4yrs old. The trks never run longer than 5 minutes between loads and sit longer than that to be reloaded again. The basement is a cool 10C yr round.

thats not a bad work temp for me, so im guessing its really good for your truck could probably do some nice long hauling???

did i read right that your going to start hauling the dirt right out the window?? if so how/what you going to do about visibility? as i notice its quite a height in there from the last video and yuor reflection in the camera??

I'm 6'4". I can look out the window no problem. During the video, I was ducking so my reflection in the front bumper didn't appear... again... in another video, I didn't go low enough!

At 10C, the basement is ideal when it's +30 in the summer, but it seems a bit chilly in the winter. Currently it's -20... a wk ago it was +10. Winter is here to stay I'm afraid.

I have a couple of ideas brewing. It is just getting a good sucution system figure out. I am thinking of having the vacum system on it own power system and having my truck pull or push along. The truck I am using is a tamiya f -350. Nice and small with the option of 4wds.
Bro you still have the most baddass sandbox on the block!
