Track trouble, 2mm pin shear on one side & good thing it happened b/c I discovered 2mm pin on other side slid out of place& was carving into gear case





Added 5" cheater boards to the cross dump today. Surprisingly stable, I thought it would wobble from being top heavy... maxxing out the 8wd power to ascend the dirt ramp, lead axle spinning while the other 3 are flexing sidewalls to the max, doesn't show up clearly in the vid.

Been working on a new B50 with a pup this winter. I went with brushed motors in this one, it'll run a little quicker than the old one with brushless.

























The old B50 needed some attention a few weeks ago, had to pull the pump out to tighten the belt.

Hauled a lot of dirt out of the basement last couple months



Used the ol GL to catch the lumps from the screener & pile in the opposite corner for the B50 to haul out later. The tunnel ramp is lil steep for the old GL, plus it only hauls half as much as the B50. Once the 'fines' pile upstairs got wide enough to use the bellydump again, parked the GL & hauled lumps direct with B50.





Last couple days been crushing dirt lumps & rocks





Monster pile of fines

Man I know I'm repeating myself here but it is always so cool to see what you've accomplished with RC power (when possible). I also love seeing the wear on the vehicles since they are being used as 1:1 stuff would be and the wear patterns look like they would on the fullsize stuff.

Always welcome & appreciative of compliments 350tocazilla

Just about done with this adt & pup

I made a valve divider block from brass for the pup







This dump cyl was on the trk, right side... the flexible hose going to the "T" I think I made it a bit too short, box going up/down - changing angles tugging a bit on this fitting broke it loose from the tube. Pipe goes up to top of tube & broke loose from that soldered joint... buffed the paint off, resolder, repaint, put it on pup after dinner today.





Got the box on the pup, put oil to the cyls



This is where the connection is for the pup hyds



Got a leak, hoping I just over tightened the fitting & crushed the seal too much... put on a new fitting with some thread seal... give a couple hrs to set & try it again.



Made up some exhaust pipes from 5/16 Plastruct tube for this adt & the others



This air cleaner is 3D printed, used an 8mm magnet to hold it place for pictures & filming, leave it off during regular use so it don't get so dirty.





And I'm motivated to get busy putting this WA500 wheel loader together next, it's only 4yrs next month that I've had it ...been using it for spare parts on occasion for other models that needed repairs, still missing a couple parts that'll hopefully show up next month.



Degrease the cyls today & paint them yellow

Got er done... well except for the decals & a couple of other bitty parts that'll show up in a few months.











Missing the fuel cap & fuel drain plug









Off to get the 1st load



Start painting the cab on the old B50 shortly... more than 50cy hauled in the last 3yrs











Trying to pull the steep grade with pup in tow, the rims on the tandem axle were slipping bad in the tires, I had to pull hard by hand to get the truck up the hill... I really hate gluing tires... not sure what this gasket maker goo will do, smeared it on today, see what it's like tomorrow.







Broomed off the ramp, nearly 5 gallon of clay powder/dust, very slippery. Road is wearing down bad!





Soaked the roadway with water, sprinkle on the fines, soaked it some more, rebuild the surface to make it smooth. Lay down some asphalt to protect the surface.



The fines pile grew a lot in the last week!

Quick vid of the 10wd pulling the grade


Presently working at cleaning up the last of the 'piled dirt lumps from the tunnel' from around the furnace.

Tidied up the last of the lumps around the furnace





Piled it all in the opposite corner, easier to load out trucks to haul to the surface







Screened it all the last 5 days



Big pile of hard lumps & rocks to run through the crusher



Lots to haul out this summer

Corrected my track chain skipping on my Izzy dozer, a local machinist suggested increasing diameter of sprocket to change the pitch. Original sprocket diameter was about 1.985 inch, 1st try at 2.125" got me nearly half there, 2nd try oh so close at 2.23", it still skips occasionally with a blade full going uphill... close enough for now.





Been working on a 2nd cross dump the last month.









Put one way roller clutches on this trl to make sharp turns easier to navigate.







Put a 2x25 Sabertooth, AR8000 rx & a battery in 2nd trl, saves me about 20 feet of stringing wires to the tractor.









Monster piles of fines to haul out before winter... didn't measure the pile, but I'd guess there's about 10 cubes here to move.



On my 3rd load









Put it through trials for a week or two to see what needs to be modified/improved, then tear it down for paint. Takes a pretty wide corner; was thinking adding a 3rd trailer, but is probably too long for indoor travels.

Next build is a side dump trl for the 4206, hope to tip it with two or three Actuonix actuators, box dimensions will be the same as the belly dumps.

Hauled out about 20 loads Friday... then I had a couple hrs of trimming to do with the dozer, did the east side of shop just before darkthat night..





Smoothed out west side Saturday morning









Used the B50 & pup to fill in the holes along the wall on the west side.





Tonight I weighed out my cross dump train, the 1st try with plywood platform was doubled up & screwed together 3/8... not strong enough



Screwed a 3rd layer of 3/8... weight of platform is 38lbs



Loaded weight 219lbs (-38lbs)





Empty weight 137lbs (-38lbs)
