The hydraulic cylinders are now built, installed and functional. Plastruct tubing and K & S aluminum tubing was used. The plan is to make all the hydraulic fittings and hoses. I’ve postponed modifying the triple grouser tracks to single grouser. This is next on the list.
I’ve been thinking about how I can detail the operator station:
Thank you Radish for all the information! The brochure has an interior that might not be too difficult to replicate. I love the detailing you did on the excavator...unbelievable work on the hydraulic lines! I like how you built the joysticks, I just might follow what you did. Once again, thank you!
Completed track mods to single grouser. Cab handrails and platforms with handrails at the front of the dozer have been completed. The rails are fabricated from 1/16” brass rod with all connection points soldered. Final fitting of these parts will be later in the project.
