Re: Great Dane excavating co.

RW, I really hate to miss this year 'cause was looking forward to seeing this loader. It's really a great piece of work.

Terry, I'm at the Econo Lodge, Exit 140, I-65 & Hwy 32. Stayed there last year and was happy with it.
Several other hotels at that exit, also.

Re: Bucyrus Erie crane truck

Yep, that 22B is factory correct for paint. Always liked their color combo.

Re: Bucyrus Erie crane truck

Yes. When we adjusted hook rollers, we'd lay the boom straight out (sometimes with weight on it) to tilt house forward, then measure clearance at top of front rollers and at bottom of rear rollers....

Re: Bucyrus Erie crane truck

Love this build! Just a clarification about the center shaft and hook rollers. Center shaft does transmit propell power to lower works, but the house is also centered by the bushing around the shaft...

Re: RC4WD 4200XL Paint Color

Decals look good, but I'm changing scales. Doing a 1/14 PC400LC-7. Dimensions are almost dead-on for model vs 1:1, and I think the model's proportions reflect the beefier look of the PC400. Oh well,...

Re: RC4WD 4200XL Paint Color

Thanks, Brandon. Mine will be a Komatsu excavator and I have digital files available. So just need to locate a shop and get it done.

I appreciate the help.

Re: RC4WD 4200XL Paint Color

Thanks! I'll check into that. Also, are your CAT decals regular decals or vinyl? Local sign shop do those or other source?

RC4WD 4200XL Paint Color

Has anyone found a matching paint for the standard "orange" color for this machine? Want to do some touch up.
Thought I'd ask before going to a paint shop for help.

Thanks!

Re: Skeeters contracting services

Have an extra connector that plugs in? Make an air cleaner to glue to it and plug it in the port - remove to charge the battery.
