Thank you ergonvold!

I thought so, but it seems like most of the in-person votes so far have been for the little flapper.

Yes, it IS the farmers daughter. (She thinks my tractors sexy)

I knew it needed an exhaust to hide my Antenna up out of the body. Then it really ought to have a hand-throttle, well if it's got that it might as well have a shifter, then i need to drill the front wheel lug holes and chrome lug nuts...





Wait, where did the Farmall 1256 and Barge wagon come from?
But I DON'T even have another lot.
Oh no, looks like i'm on my way to becoming a Farm Collector...

Watch out! It seems like there are some projects sneaking up on you.

That's a great way to deal with an antenna tube.

I know, it's just what the guy with "Project Attention Deficit Disorder" needed! (Finished projects are for suckers)

The little IH and Tonka in first post went to my dad. The big IH has a cracked and worn out front axle, but i liked the look if i really get into this RC Farm thing. The axle articulates and steers, so it's already much nicer than the new wildly swinging axles. It appears to have been new when the real tractors were, it probably likes the paint wear, just needs some grime and weathering for its 'work clothes'.

The Cockshutt needs a couple touches of paint, some anti-skid, Slow Vehicle Triangle, rear hubcaps, maybe a couple other little details.

Ok, how's this looking now?





Backstory i'm aiming for this machine has been used through it's first life, restored into a show tractor, and gets out for some plow days and other light use.

I'm going to try to learn how to turn Some bad videos into A bad video. Also probably just a couple more details when i feel like it.

Hopefully this doesn't suck, juggling a camera and remote, plus i'm trying to learn a video editor.

https://youtu.be/xiFamVvDfwY

I know it's a 6 cylinder with 6 forward gears and the rear track set very wide, but Sabine is still driving it pretty fast for as rough as my land is.

I should be careful that i don't go too crazy into the Farming world, i may need to have her dad show up and introduce "some of the other old crap around here that's not running..."

I can't help but think that a video of the farmer's daughter riding your cockshutt would belong on a different kind of forum.......

Yep, I'm here too (had to go somewhere after the other one went kaputt). I think I can help solve the belt pulley, got an old cell phone laying around? Strip it down and pull the micro motor that makes it vibrate, drill hole in the appropriate spot with the motor fitted so it is snug and about half way outside the body case. Add a pulley for looks and wire it up to run with power or maybe throttle. Oh and the tin can dangling on a string/chain so you don't lose it.

And if you don't have an old cellphone to tear apart, it would most likely be the same type of motor in a micro servo.
Welcome, 2redrovers!

I can't believe how silent that tractor runs! Nice job on the mechanics.

Good thinking Wombii and thanks. Still mostly here in stalker/dad joke mode but better late than never... I am attempting to get something done with my jcb midi but struggling a bit.

That tractor is stealth mode 100, even has automatic uncoupling. I've used a servo to drive the jcb and it sounds like a battery drill in a blender with ice cubes.. It is slow though, so there's that

Good to see you again Rovers! i was afraid you got stuck in the wreckage when Scale4x4 collapsed.

Well nobody complained about the jokes on my dumptruck, plus i'd much rather have a farmers daughter riding it than a guy...

The gearmotors do make some noise, but outside you'll never hear it. At a meet you'd never hear it over all the other stuff with Soundkits. In my house you hear the AG tread thumping more than motor noise. I'm still going to open them again and add a little more grease, there's a nice little pile of gears and spacers in them.

Yeah, Ertls barge wagon tongue doesn't have enough float, so the automatic uncoupling works if the ground is too uneven. I thought it was funny.

I like the part where "Mr. Hand" helps out... I'm amazed you got all that wire and everything else in there....a feat in itself ...I like the outside the box thinking....

Heh, yeah. Good thing we have friendly giants around here.
i don't know how you could do an hands off trailer coupling without changing everything over to a Lunette ring on trailer, and trying to make a bump-locking Pintle hook with release lever for tractor. Then run a rope from the release ring up to the seat, to hidden servo. Maybe it'd be worth it if i were building a Tug tow tractor instead of Cockshutt row crop. I shouldn't need to hit and drop trailers that much.

I dunno, i think trying to assemble it's *VERY much* inside-the-box thinking. And the box is small. And it is conductive. If i were going way too crazy tight, i'd have to step up to some "Table Top Trial Truck" electronics. If it fits in a 1/87 scale rc vehicle TTTT, it should fit anywhere!

Got an old truck-bed trailer safe enough to try dragging around



Then some guy wanted to be pulled around town in a trailer to spread some message.


But then ya gotta give equal time for the other guy too


Looks like that spreader still works pretty well... all i know is we probably need some boots, it's getting pretty deep

This was a nice little project! I really like how you stashed everything into such a tight space. Did you use the inexpensive ESC that I see mentioned in several threads? If so, would you be able to post a link?

Thank you!

Yeah i used one of those cheap chinese Brushed-motor ESCs we've been talking about that are sold between 10-30 amps, and some have switchable brakes, some seem to be good for up to a 380 motor. I think this one got a "General Tso with Fried rice and an Egg roll'' brand? I don't know.

https://smile.amazon.com/Hobbypower-...ef_=ast_sto_dp

This one got 10a with no-brake. For this size tire and doing some drawbar pulls i may want to go higher amps eventually?

I'm using a Flysky fs-gr3 rx (that works interchangibly with a Redcat RCR-2C) on my Redcat 2ch tx, or it could bind to my flysky fs-i6 tx

MG90s servo.
Pkcell 2/3AA rechargable nimh 650mAh
3mm x 3mm shaft coupler adapter for boat motor
Motors probably came from Wish so searching a part number i gave earlier or hitting up Polulu is probably a WAY better chance of ever finding them again
