If you leave the flares, it should work ok width on these axles.

Planning to use a figreli / actuonix actuator for the main lift ram.
My bed is 5.20"w by 7"L by 2.5"h. Hinge is 1.5" fwd of the gate, ram attach 2.25" fwd of gate. Original 'hydraulic' ram is an oil damped spring 100mm open, 80 closed, 20mm travel. (Eww, metric) I'm open to suggestions of better ways to do it.

L12- 30mm ranges mount hole lengths from 82 to 112mm

So i'm thinking i need an L12r-30-210, or L12r-30-100. Not sure if the 100 or 210 ratio speed would fit this look better?

Or there was talk of an L16-30 becoming available and only 14mm longer than the L12-30-. Not listed on their site.

Scrapwood mock up, not just cardboard!


Then realized i really ment 82-112 for the travel holes instead of 80-100 pictured, so i remade it, and in theory full lift can actually go just past vertical. That won't be the end of the world, it can be stopped where ever.

I almost wonder about a scissor lift using a gear reduction motor?

My first operator didn't like the rig and wanted to run other equipment, so we hired this guy with a hat. So far he's really enjoying the old truck and isn't complaining about not having new stuff.

Let's do some work


Those earlier trailers are ok, but...
What's the absolute coolest trailer you can ever stick behind a dumptruck?



Alright, nice!
This has been hanging out in my garage for a while, but I keep saying I'm not going to start *another* project until something is "finished". I finally built a brass towbar and a sleeve to connect the stock short little Doepke towbar to my hitch. slide joggle bar through the hole, slide sleeve over to lock bars ridgid. It should track better than the video of TheStuffz crane behind his truck.


The ladies got their tetinus shots, so time for a celebration that photobutt has been pruged from the build.

Tire changes are hard at this scale...


I really liked the hubcap over real rims idea presented on a similar build.
So, a rare earth magnet is stuck to the inside of cap, which holds it to the lug nut. The cap amazingly comes to the edge of my rim, with the fake sidewall left exposed.

I'm still not sure about it with these tires, but i liked the idea.

Thanks to Mustang46555, i now have a DUMPtruck! Not just a truck that looks like it should dump.



My driver got a magnetic implant, with a magnet between his back and seat, and another on back side of the seat. Now it doesn't matter this has vinyl seats, doesn't have seatbelts, and rides like a dumptruck.

I learned that if you're towing a mobile crane, you need a way to secure the outriggers up. Also make sure your sandloader chute handle is over center so that doesn't drop.

I need to rework the tail light mounts into mudflap holders.
I need to make a new drawbar plate for new heavy duty pintle hitch instead of the tow ball.
I need to look more into the 1.9 rally car tires, these slicks are still hard slicks.

I keep saying it's 1/14 scale, but whats that really mean? Sure it plays with Tamiya Semi trucks, construction equipment, farming equipment... but no hobby shop i've been to seems to care about those.

Heres some crawler perspective.

I smoked the original plastic gear servo, so a hitec hs225mg was installed

Tamiya rally block tires, sp-476 or 50476. Put on the Traxxas steelies.

I felt like knocking together a little trailer. Kinda based on the old single axle car haulers. Good for baby excvators, skidsteers, shipping containers...



Drop hitch to level it out

Been a while since I've seen this one I forgot you had it, still looks sweet. Trailer looks great and would be perfect with a small excavator or something like that on it.

Got this one working pretty well so there wasn't much to say about it for a while.

The used bed actuator with the wrong gear ratio, running on a servo board instead of esc wasn't strong enough. Got parts to improve that, motivation hasn't hit yet.

Built the trailer so that this truck, the bus, and the doka truck can all use it by switching the coupler for correct height. The 'leaf springs' under it are just a section of windshield wiper arm off the real car.

What kind of decking do you think would look right on it?

Dunno, it's a toss up between a steel chequered plate look or a heavy hardwood type. I see both here in Oz. Sometimes it's a mix with steel frame and hardwood planks where the excavator tracks sit.
