Smile Hello from Canada

Hello Everyone, Happy to be in this group.
Construction véhicle is wonderfull , play with it even better.

My principal interest is in the Backhoe Loader. A wonderfull machine.
But it is so hard to find one R/C fully functional (Loader and Backhoe).

So I am open to get any info where I can find one to buy, to build, to design ..... ?

Thank you all,

Maparn

Welcome to our sand box!

Have you looked at Bruder toys? They are durable (even though they are made of plastic) & are frequently converted to RC.

Welcome to the forum. I've seen a few loader-backhoe units attempted, but not sure if they have been completed. You are right, with such restricted space, it is a tough one, but would love to seen one working.

The most promising looking toy to convert that i've seen is an old metal Ertl backhoe. Think in was international or a deere.

Problem is it's a LOT of stuff to cram in there. Drive 2 ch, bucket 2 ch, dig 4 ch. Then you might still want lights or outriggers or...

Thumbs up Re: Hello from Canada

Welcome to the forum. Here’s a nice rc backhoe but it’s a custom build.
