Help your fellow builder by leaving your feedback based on these three criteria:
- Originality: How original is this - never seen before?
- Building Techniques: How much skill do you think the creator of this MOC has, in terms of building technique?
- Details: Express how much you like the details of the build.
Your feedback is only shown to the creator as well as yourself. It is not available for other users to see. The creator won't see your user name.
I've managed to squeeze in a system for operating pneumatic cylinders remotely to control the blade (no custom parts are used), but I decided not to include a ripper because it doesn't add much play value in my opinion. Links for a four-point mount at the rear are included, so that could always be added though. The blade is shamelessly taken from 8275 with little modification, but the rest is entirely my own creation.
My intention from the start was to build something that Lego themselves might have produced - not the most super detailed MOC I possibly could, but a decent representation of what it's based on that functions well and leaves plenty of room for little tweaks and embellishment that make Lego models such fun even after you've finished the build from instructions. I've payed special attention to the drive system to make sure there are no weak spots where bits might move or flex and gears slip past each other once it's put under load - it is a bulldozer after all - and I'm happy to say it's very robust.
I'm currently working on a CAT 740 articulated dump truck with ejector bed in the same scale, which is power function driven with working chassis articulation and suspension system. The ejector bed I'm particularly pleased with - Lego just doesn't suit the tipping version :)
Happy building and thank you for your vote if you do, I really appreciate it!
