Don't know why those lil plate covers don't come welded in place... they're around here somewhere.

Back to shop for repairs... can you see why?

One quick fix is to cover the hinges, just a bit of grit is stopping the doors from fully closing. I had the foresight to bevel the top edges of the doors pinch point, but that's not enough.

Gotta burn the paint...

She looks a bit like a really old horse in that one picture.lol Shame to ruin the paint with more welding but an easy fix with an added brace I'm guessing.

Ding Ding Winner Winner... that's exactly what happened Reg

Masking tape Neil.

Upload a vid tonite Emil.

Made some mods





Lowered the neck an inch



Lifted the rears 3/4 inch & shoved it forward 2 inches



Now the belly clears with room to spare





3 not heaping loads on cross dump empties the screening bin vs 4 full loads & a 1/3 on B50





Part throttle, the front & rears will give & take fairly evenly... sharp turn at full throttle = CRASH!!!

Yeah, the other one has hyds. I will eventually make the other one a dedicated lowboy hauler strong enough to haul that 95lbs D9 anywhere.

These Bell tractors are pretty cheap trucks.

I'm not understanding what is included in the tractor kit . Hydraulics in the kit or not ?

Nice job on the dump wagon .

Someone should invent a color flux core for welding so the paint doesn't get ruined!

Steve, no hyds included with original 4206 kit.

Indeed Frizzen, move a lot of dirt per hour with this rig... but having issues with brushless motors in the tractor vs brushed motors in the trl, only at full throttle can I get them to work smoothly together... sometimes

I was going to switch tractor to brushed, but the axle housings are too narrow for the longer brushed motor/gearhead... would rather have all brushed b/c then it will travel 20% faster & one 2x25 Sabertooth will control all 8 wheel motors vs trying to sync 8 individual escs/brushless wheel motors... currently only have one extra B50 axle for brushed motors, of course ...just be a matter of having to drill & tap the B50 axle housing to bolt it into the narrower 4206 body. The tires will stick out a 1/4 inch more each side... ahhh, aint scratchbuilding fun?!

Your million dollar idea Jim, good luck with it

Lightbulb Re: LilGiantsConstrCo

Hey Joe !
This is really fun to watch how you ditch the smaller units for the mega machines. but still in the right size of our " Hobby size sort of scale "
Crunch Crunch........The size of your real world day to day work might play into your Smaller scale world.......which makes me feel your coming down to Cabin Fever really soon in your own tunnel. Is that true Joe ? Please Please !
I'll meet you half ways. lol.
