This is the first time I have ever grown flax, the purple flowers looks pretty cool on the landscape... the camera doesn't do it justice.




I sure wish it was June 18th instead of July 18th, some really nice crops in the country... hope for a very late Fall.

Thanks Joe.. Hope to do some pics that show where I placed the. cam.
Personaly I think the best view was with the windscreen visible.. Wich was with the cam behind the cabin... My cam is also to big to put inside now that i got the interior.. but I'm considering to modefy the cam...
Its only a smal bit of the cam that is needed for the motion part. so i think of maybe splitting it and just extend the wires to the rest (and hide that..)

As I've consentrated on the Norwegian community most of my stuff is there.. But i'll try to create a thread for my models with the cam-mount as soon as its ready

And... Great farm you have there... Never seen that purple field before. ... Looks realy good..

really like the driver view, nice one. I tried it with micro cams some time ago. the lipo got eaten so quickly though. your glass quality, and hyrailics are way way way better than my bruder excuse-conversion

Pressured air works pretty good Ed,, though down there it creates an almost toxic cloud. I blow everything off occassionally. The dirt and grime make the models look more realistic, wouldn't say?

I bought my loader 2nd hand from a guy in Ireland who lost interest while building it. He contacted me on the garden and gave me a hell of a deal!

You'd be looking at around 200 euro for shipping a kit from Europe Nathan.

Here's one link that shows many flaws of the junk 345! I wonder how many will continue to buy from wdc after laying down big bucks for another piece of crap right out the box?!

Hello Martin Good to see you here. Thanx for the info on the camera. I look forward to seeing more of your projects here on Scale. I check in on your forum when I can, but not knowing the language and the translator only doing so much... it's hard to follow along with what you guys are doing.

Say, have you heard from Ole lately? Is he still above ground or did that new bike turn him into roadkill?

Fabulous video arrangement dozzablue, something to learn from for future videos.


Well, this is a 1st, I had to change out a Futaba S3107 servo tonite. That's the 1st one that has ever failed me.

Change out was simple: remove five screws on each side and lift the hood off to get to the hyd valve block.



The lift cyls are starting to leak, they might last till winter.

Ed, I have been getting new replacements from Leimbach. I found out last winter I could send in the old ones to get refurbished... for a minor fee. I'd pay double if Leimbach would start making their cylinder barrels from steel instead of aluminum. Oil would stay cleaner longer and seals would last longer too!

I have managed to get these cyls apart without damage and Harald Stahl sent me seals March 09, but unfortunately they were the piston seals instead of the scraper rod seals, which is where the oil is coming out of the cyl.

It could be 300hrs Steve.

I'll never own another junk wdc again! I gave away the 966 loader and the 740 is in as nearly many pieces as when I got it.

Well today's excitement in the quarry was a flood of water in the same corner as last yr, but this time I was right there when the water started coming in. I caught as much as I could with a plastic gallon pail, then built up a dam to hold the rest of the water.

I went upstairs briefly to get a bigger pail and looked out the window, it was literally a wall of water out there, I could barely see my quoincent 75 yds away! :mama: Lasted about 10 -15minutes, approx 1.5 inches (38.1mm).









I laid down shingles over the mud, this area will be forever drying out!




Back to digging.

Joe it just a suggestion but why couldn't you sweet some stainless liner in the cylinders? That would solve a lot of your problems or once again have the insides of them chromed. Either one of these suggestions would eliminate allot of your problems if not all. Seals would last longer and oil stay cleaner. Once again nice pictures Joe. Ed

From the emails I have had with Lars Stahl it is not speaking english as much as the translation from german to english.

Thanks for the link Joe. To bad about the breakage on the Cat 345D. I still actually like the machine, except for the bucket cylinder being to long, and not the proper mounting arrangement, as compared to the 1:1. Otherwise, it seems to perform pretty well in the various videos I have watched. I noticed on that forum link, one guy said he also broke the bucket in a similar fashion, but on his Damitz excavator? Perhaps it's an isolated case that can plague anyone? A cast part, with air bubbles in the mold, that can't escape, will make weak parts for sure. I guess as more of these models get sold, problems may pop up more often. Have to wait and see.

Sounds like the track drive is also giving people problems though. A rubber timing belt to drive the sprockets? I imagine it slips or the dirt gets inside. Hmmm.

Well, I'd rather have a Komatsu right now anyway.
