@bigmeh, Thanks, I didn’t catch the reference to the box [pkg] size, but was thinking if the ratio is 1:14 & the width is 10.4" then that would mean that the actual width of the Bulldozer is approx 12.133’, or a smidge over 12 ft wide which sounds unrealistic!! A train ain’t that freakin wide, or me math is off at least 7’, or so!! This means the box [package] is about twice the size of the frkn Bulldozer!!
@1DisabledWarVet@bigmeh well it’s a loader not a dozer. Also train tracks are 4’8.5" wide making the typical train car around 10.5’ wide. This LOADER could easily surpass those dimensions in real life.
@Dynamik, well, yes & no! You can load fresh manure, snow, or dirt; it doesn’t matter since the loader, scoop, or whatever has no AI to ID the load. You could load a dead rat & the bulldozer could care less, or couldn’t care less!! BTW, I meant to say ‘fresh fertilizer’, but it’s about the same same!!
@1DisabledWarVet@Dynamik@Kidsandliz@rpstrong Also, rather than use a catbox, dump a few bags of cat litter all over the floor in your least favorite room, let the cat enjoy it, and then you can use this heavy equipment to clean up the toxic waste.
@awk, I was wondering about that myself & was wondering why have chains; who cares if it happens to slip, or lose traction! But if it’s fully functional it may even use diesel,… so do I haveta have a driver’s license¿?
“You can Run Up To 20 Vehicles Without [Freaking] Interference”? What in the hell does that mean¿? And what are the walk around safety rails for? I mean, is OSHA gonna make unannounced inspections, where ya have ta wear a frkn hardhat or what¿?
[BTW, I did assume the spec boys meant 20 hour, but I just like to rub their noses in it!]
@1DisabledWarVet it means that you can run up to 20 vehicles without the radios interfering with each other, unlike old school RC toys where you had to make sure you bought different channels if you got more than one.
@djslack, okay, Thanks for the heads-up,…my bad, but it’s been a long, long, time since I played with toys,…alright, okie dokie, okay, ya got me! I just bought 1 of them Cosmic Halo [wireless drones] My cats like it!!
Here’s my pedantic comment since “wheels” has been addressed:
22CH 2.4GHZ Radio System with multi-function controls will put every part of the construction vehicle under your command
In the RC world, each button, knob, switch, or axis of movement for a stick is generally a channel. Now you can do mixing where one thing controls multiple channels, but generally speaking it’s about one channel per doodad on the controller.
My 16 channel aircraft controller looks like the control panel in an airliner compared to this. There are multiple switches and knobs on every accessible panel of the case.
I call BS on 22 channels. There are maybe 10, if everything that’s not a trim button or the power switch is a channel control. And it’s realistically more like 8 because bucket up and bucket down/arms up and arms down are two directions of the same channel. So don’t go getting into any number of channel contests with this thing.
@djslack@rpstrong wouldn’t this be a digital code sent over a certain frequency, rather than using a different frequency for each possible function?
I’m not at all up-to-date on RC control technology, but it seems if you are reserving one frequency for
turn left and one for turn right, etc, for 20 functions, it gets much sillier. And having that many separately tuned transmitter and receiver circuits? OK maybe I just don’t get it.
wouldn’t this be a digital code sent over a certain frequency, rather than using a different frequency for each possible function?
Yes. That’s exactly what they are. And even before modern radios, they were some sort of signal (analog or digital) multiplexed into one transmission. They may be called channels from way way back when they may have been individual radio frequencies, or just channels of control, I’m not sure. But you generally get a certain number, usually not too many more than you need. No sense putting in 22 channel capable equipment for something that needs six or maybe eight.
Also, imagine how quickly you could dig up a sandbox if you had 22 of these loaders and enough corresponding and coordinated thumbs.
I didn’t realize each function had a channel
I was thinking that was how you could run 20 vehicles at once without interference
For me the biggest question is how much weight can it pick up
Long ago I drove a medium sized loader like this with a snow bucket that we also used in the summer and if you filled the bucket with wet dirt or gravel the back wheels got unweighted and you could tip onto the bucket when you hit a bump causing premature ejaculation of your load
This was much more embarrassing than the other type because it was in public and normally made a big mess… hmmm just made me think of “She’s too hot for you”
This is actually something I’ve almost hit buy on every time I see it. I think it’s awesome. But then I realize after the first week or so I will have a 20 inch front end loader I have to put somewhere and then a year from now I will have this 20 inch front end loader that’s in the way somewhere. But I still think it’s awesome. I just know I wouldn’t use it all that much.
