Default Rc4wd 870k wheel loader unboxing and review.

https://youtu.be/EBi2B8o7gTs
All the previous unboxing videos I've seen on youtube came with a nice wooden box. Wanted to show how the recently shipped boxes come now. Also notice the front bucket ram PIN is installed where as before you would need to put that on yourself.
Now the new foam box is very well packed as you can see in the video.
My initial reaction was, wow this is heavy, especially the rear end. That's probably why it has so much lifting power.
There is no sound module card (that's expected from rc4wd) but there is a speaker installed already with wires coming out from it.  So installing a card should be a piece of cake.

It looks very well built.  They revised the colors. The rear radiator grill and engine handle bars are now Gray instead of yellow. I think that really changed the way the machine looks.

I already filled it up with oil and started her up. The pump noise is much louder than my pc700 and cat740. The valve control is not that precise compared to my pc700 equipped with Premacon valves.

It's hard to describe but when you move the stick very slightly, the rams don't move and I can hear the pump noise struggling so slightly. If you move the stick a little more, the cylinders start to move but not at the expected slow speed you want. This is the same for all 3 valves. Full disclosure, I am running mobil dte24 (ISO 32) and when I asked around including Mr Tang from eagle, he said it will be ok as long as it's not too cold outside. I live in Los Angeles so I think I should be fine with that. Here is a video of the valve control. https://youtu.be/eyyLs9oaXl8
(Update to the above issue, I unscrewed the pressure relief valve maybe half a turn and that solved the issue above)

Now comparing to my pc700 or cat740, the stick movements reflect 100% on the cylinders movement as one would expect.
This review was based on 10minutes of run time. So I will edit as more running time goes on.

I like the grill painted gray, now you need to get some puppet drivers for your machines. When you find some let me know cause I could use a few.

No this isn’t the 360L interior. I bought this interior from TTM for my 4200XL since it doesn’t come with one.

That bucket looks different than the stock bucket that came with mine. Where did you source it from?

It’s the RC4WD Siberian bucket powdercoated black with custom machined steel teeth instead of the aluminum teeth that come with it. There’s also a quick coupler on there. Check out my company Tremblay Excavation for more info

I made 2 videos today. One showing how I setup my radio and the other mimic practicing loading/dumping dirt.
One thing I don't mention in the video is I moved all the fwd/rev and steering on the right stick. The boom and bucket is on the left stick.
The room is small so the pump noise is a lot louder than what it would sound outdoors.

Sure doesn't take you long to operate your machines in a realistic manner. Cant wait to see it outside.

Great job Shawn! Thanks for demo. I’m sure it’s going to help out a lot of owners to see how you tuned your loader
