Joe nice video on the new machine. Let me ask a couple of questions will the tracks from the new one fit on the 850 if they would I was going to get a set for my 450 Deere. I sent 4wd a email and asked for 2 pads but they don't have any to ship. There only slightly narrower than the Vario and they are metal so if the pins are the same distance apart and they fit the sprocket they might work better than the composite ones we got. If you get a chance to find out and let me know I would appreciate it. Ed

Hello Martin, what sort of changes/refinements did Frode make to improve the model's performance?

It's too bad the "shippers" don't have the foresight to atleast close the vent, it's not pleasent having to clean the model upon its arrival... they assemble the model & then layer the paint on thick so you can't take it apart for a thorough cleaning (unless you want to meticulously grind the paint out of the bolt heads & around the bolts).

I'm not much for details, but yeah, the cab could do with a change to make the model look more suited to 14th scale... someday when I give a shyt about scale perfection, Imay do that.

Why do you think they'd work better Ed? Yes, the links are metal & the cleats are quite close together making them almost smooth - no traction. If it helps you any, the distance between the pins is approx 18mm.

8ball ice, thanx for your kind words...the answer to your qu? has been asked/answered several times in this thread already. Hope you enjoy your read.

Function before beuty.. right..
Dont know if i wrote something wrong or missleading, but I do not know if Frode made some changes to improve performance... Only that he needed to change hydr.pump-engine and some ESC also due to leakage of hydr.oil after shipping

Hi Joe.
Hows your XL4200 working.
Waiting mine to arrive early next week.
Some friends got theres last week.
Unfortunatly they also arrived solked in oil.. so they do not learn down there..

BUT... we discovered another problem... The valves tend to leak as soon as the oil starts to flow easyer (when getting working temp after 2-3min).
It comes out where the servoes as mounted.
Have you any experience with this? Made any improvments.. Or is it just bad luck for the 2 pieces i've seen with this problem in Norway ?

After a testrun with the 4200 last weekend I must say it feels to me like the most powerfull excavator on the marked right now.. Have you made any comparison with your Stahl, Vario, RC4WD machines when it comes to strenght digging, beltmovments and so on... ??

That was the one thing that impressed me most about this chinese hoe, how tight the valves are! I can set my arm fully extended with the bucket an inch from the ground and come back a day or two later with it still in the exact same position I left it. My cyls do not creep at all!

With all the yrs experience with these german hyds, I have never been able to set neutral that precise on any of them.

I do see a bit of an oil film on the piston rod & then rod end cap seems a bit moist with oil.

I haven't noticed any leaks within the house. There can't be or the arm would creep.

Yes, the hyds have some power alright, but then, even the Stahl/Leimbach hoe can be turned up to the same power. However, the excessive hyd power is useless to have if the model doesn't have the weight/traction to stay put! I need to monkey with the press relief more yet to lessen its hyd power so its just on the brink of loosing traction, but doesn't.

I haven't used the chinese hoe for nearly a month now, busy with harvest. I'm caught up for now for a wk or so, I'll probably go the quarry later this afternoon to haul dirt out, but 1st I'm taking a nap right after I click this post.

That seems so dumb, the manufacturer has a shut off valve on their air vented hyd tank & they won't f/king close it prior to shipping... what an irritating mess to clean up for a brand new, fresh out the box, rtr model. Are they intentionally trying to pizz off their newly aquired clientel?

The price of this chinese model is reasonable... however, if I could be refunded every penny I've spent for the Stahl & Vario, I wouldn't give back either one in trade for this chinese hoe. It still boils down to "you get what you pay for" and the german models are light years advanced in engineering than this cheaper chinese hoe.

Maybe this tx that came with this chinese hoe is defective as I can not fine tune the model's movements the way I like to run the other two german hoes with Robbe & Spektrum radios.

Spektrum DX10T is due for release Feb, '12. The 850, probably the Stahl & definitely this HK hoe will be put on this tx.

That DX10T radio looks like an awesome radio with all you need out of the box!

Just a lil update of what I have been working at the last month or so. I've just about got this hole cleaned out... maybe today.








I'm thinking after the loose dirt is cleaned up that I'll set the 850 in the hole & dig it deeper by another two feet or so. Then maybe most of this wall will fit in it this winter. I'm going to finnish this basement excavation project before I move out of the house next Spring.

Budget?! I think that went by the wayside with the 1st equip purchase.

Here's some more scale dirt for ya Bulldog. Perhaps your next project could be a goose neck dumper for your big dually, I need more haulers to keep the dirt away from this 850.

I've been digging the hole deeper! My buddy Kalle had his friend tool me up a ripper tooth as well and that helps imensely to loosen up this sticky brown clay.

I saw that ripper tooth...awesome! I'd love to do a goose neck trailer. I've got so many ideas, yet so little time to build. I wish there was a way I could just build what I wanted to, but the hobby has to remain that...a hobby. Life comes first. I live vicariously through the forum. Luckily there's plenty of talent out there to watch. Keep it up Joe! How cool would a scale Ford crew leader truck look with your fleet...a work truck with a load of cones, chains, a fuel tank, a gooseneck trailer with a case 580e for the light stuff. Don't get me started!

...you've lost me Bulldog focus -> function before beauty!

I even have Gators down here! He's been hanging... or should I say slithering around the basement for a few yrs now. I torment him occassionally with the rc's... run over him with a dump trk or dozer, or scoop him up in a bucket & burry him in the pile. Tough little bugger! :devil:





And I've got these little critters coming out of the wet soil too.



The HK making itself useful.

















The deepest point of the hole is about 44" below the basement surface.
